Tony Sly Tribute Album Features The Gaslight Anthem, Frank Turner And More




A tribute album celebrating the career of the late frontman Tony Sly has been announced.

Sly joined punk band No Use For A Name in 1989 when he was 18, and went on to release nine studio albums with the band.

Sly died on July 31 2012, at the age of 41. The band played their final show as a tribute to Sly last September.

The album is being assembled by Fat Mike of NOFX, who runs the Fat Wreck Chords label which the album will be released with.

Fat Mike stated: “All the bands are doing No Use for a Name songs or Tony Sly songs with their own take.... These bands were his closest friends and his favourite bands. I thank all of them for stepping up and showing their love and respect to Tony and his family.”

Bands contributing to the album include Frank Turner, The Gaslight Anthem, Bad Religion, Lagwagon, Dropkick Murphys, Rise Against, NOFX, Pennywise, and Bouncing Souls.

No release date has been confirmed.
