We’ll forever miss Tony Sly and even more so when we hear Capo 4th Fret as sung by Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem. Today, USA Today is streaming the song and you can listen to it here! Simple, sweet, introspective and warm all over; we are once again reminded just how talented Tony Sly was as a lyricist. The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute will be released on October 29th and you can pre-order it here.
SPIN is premiering the new WESTERN ADDICTION song “GOD SAYS NO”. It is the second song from PINES, a throttling three song 7" with menacing vocals and ripping guitars, to be released on November 5th! You can hear the first song we unleashed earlier this month, “BLACK SALT” over at Noisey/Vice. Then, go pre-order it today! WESTERN ADDICTION are playing our CMJ Showcase tonight in Brooklyn. Show info below!
What we love so much about Frank Turner’s interpretation of “Keira” is you can almost imagine a quiet Tony Sly penning this lullaby for his daughter. It makes us reflect and most of all, it makes us long for Tony. While many in the music community gave Tony Sly nods for his lyrics, they were occasionally muffled by the high energy of NUFAN’s music. Frank’s take (along with many others on the comp) opens a new door to see and really hear just how introspective his songs were. Head to Big Cheese to listen to “Keria” and if you missed the Alkaline Trio’s “Straight from the Jacket” you can check that out here.

The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute will be released on October 29th.
