The Used will headline the nationwide "Take Action Tour," which will draw attention to The It Gets Better Project on this year's journey.

Three other bands will join The Used on the trek: We Came As Romans, Crown The Empire and Mindflow. The four outfits will kick off the benefit tour with a Jan. 11 performance in Las Vegas. The 33-city outing will canvas the nation before wrapping up March 1 in Los Angeles.

Ticketing information for the club and theater trek is available now at the tour's website.

Sponsored by Hopeless Records and its nonprofit arm, Sub City, the Take Action tour will this year benefit The It Gets Better Project, which encourages LGBT youth to keep in mind that they're not alone and that life gets better.

Ten percent of the cost of each ticket sold will benefit the project. Since 1999, the Take Action tour has raised more than $2 million for more than 50 organizations.

"It's our privilege to work with such a lovely charity that does so much good in this confusing world," The Used frontman Bert McCracken said.

The Used unveiled its fifth studio album, "Vulnerable," in March via Hopeless Records. That set peaked at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Top Independent Albums chart.
