We are stoked to announce dream team Tony Sly and Joey Cape are once again joining forces to release a split on Fat Wreck Chords. This two song 7âwill street on March 2nd and is a collaboration not only musically but artistically. Tony and Joey each drew each otherâs side of the 7âcover as Joey Cape recently said, âTony Sly is a great artistâ¦and by artist I mean illustrator. Just look at that cover art.â The fun doesnât end there as both sing backup on one anotherâs song. Joey Capeâs track is a solo acoustic version of a Lagwagon Resolve song. Tony Slyâs is a new original and both are exclusive to this 7â. Tony Sly and Joey Cape will be touring Europe together this winter which prompted the split 7âas Tony Sly describes, âItâs a split 7â with each guy doing vocals on the others song. It was Joeyâs idea because we have this tour coming up together.â Fingers and toes crossed this stellar tour comes stateside. Click here to view their European tour dates.
Tony Slyâs debut full length titled the 12 Song Program comes out on February 16th. Click here to hear a track!

Tony Sly is in the holiday spirit as he just posted a brand new track titled “The Shortest Pier” off his upcoming solo album titled the 12 Song Program due out February 16th. Tony Sly had this to say about the track “This is one of my favorite songs on the new record. It’s pretty dark and moody with sort of an uplifting sounding chorus yet really miserable lyrics about dealing with life by combating it with booze.” Now, go cozy up with your spiked eggnog and pre-order your copy right now by clicking here.

After 20 years of turning out music with punk outfit No Use For A Name, Tony Sly is set to release his first solo full length. It is titled 12 Song Program and is due out February 16th. Folks can expect guest appearances from Karina Denike of Dance Hall Crashers, Darius from Swingin’ Utters and Joey Cape of Bad Astronaut/Lagwagon fame. Additionally, Tony Sly has announced tour plans for 2010 which include a west coast run with Chris Shiflett from the Foo Fighters and a European tour with Joey Cape. Click here to view the dates! To delve a little deeper into what motivated Tony Sly to release a solo record, read below:
I decided to do a solo record because I had some song ideas that wouldnât work for No Use. Iâve been wanting to do this for several years but I just never had the time. I also wanted to get some of my more folky influences on a record. I think youâll hear that this is not an acoustic NUFAN record. I think some songs just canât be made into punk songs like some punk songs canât be made into acoustic songs. I also like the idea of having the freedom of playing shows on the fly, being able to show up at a bar with just a guitar and have enough material to play for an hour or so. Iâm getting some good feedback and good tours lined-up for 2010. Should be interesting.
