Justin, who was let go from the band a few months ago over “artistic differences”, has reported to have threatened violence against his ex-bandmates and had even threatened to “fucking hang [him]self in the middle of a show.”
In some very interesting texts, Justin allegedly said retaliation “is the only way to get justice”. In another he says, “those fucks ruined my life and stole all of my creative work.”
Ex-Saosin member, Shekoski joined The Used in 2015 and featured on the full-length “The Canyon” and their 2016 live album, “Live & Acoustic At The Palace.”
The protective order legally requires Justin to stay 100 yards away from all members of the group at all times; any place they work, including any venue where the group is performing.
The train keeps rolling on…
As originally reported, The Used are currently on tour with The Fever 333 and Red Sun Rising. Joey Bradford from Hell or Highwater (featuring members of Atreyu) will continue to fill in on the following dates.
05/08 Toronto, ON @ The Phoenix Concert Theatre
05/09 Kitchener, ON @ Elements
05/11 Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom
05/12 Fort Wayne, IN @ The Clyde Theatre

The Used are joining the last ever cross-country Vans Warped Tour between 6/12 to 7/10, alongside Story Of The Year, Taking Back Sunday, Pennywise and more.
With all this contention, this means any chance of a Justin Shekoski/Saosin reunion will not happen.
