Today, we release The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute, a 26-track covers album compiled to celebrate the life and music of the late No Use For A Name frontman Tony Sly, who passed away on July 31st, 2012. The compilation showcases a diverse menagerie of artists offering their unique interpretations of Tony’s songs such as Rise Against, Bad Religion, Alkaline Trio, Yellowcard, Snuff and Karina Denike to name a few. Below, listen to Strung Out’s riffy take on the NUFAN classic “Soulmate” and NOFX turn Tony’s solo song “The Shortest Pier” into a prototypical NOFX-style punk song. Read a new review or two and order your copy today. Profits from the sale of the compilation will go towards the Tony Sly Memorial Fund, established to assist Tony’s wife Brigitte and their daughters, Fiona and Keira.
