Fat Wreck Chords Confirm Tony Sly Tribute Album

Posted by: Deborah Remus (04/19/13)
Fat Wreck Chords confirmed that the label will be releasing the upcoming Tony Sly tribute album.
Tony was a fucking amazing songwriter and one of my dearest friends. His death was traumatic. Horrible. Iíve had friends die, but this was different. Tony wasnít finished. Iíve been putting together this tribute comp for some time. Itís incredible how many bands have called me wanting to be on it. Itís been my absolute privilege to put this together. What I wanted to show on this record is how amazing Tonyís songs are. You can tell a song is great when it can be done in any style and itís still great. Thatís what this comp is about. All the bands are doing No Use for a Name songs or Tony Sly songs with their own take. Itís a real tribute to his songwriting. I wanted to make a comp that Tony would be so proud of. These bands were his closest friends and his favorite bands. I thank all of them for stepping up and showing their love and respect to Tony and his family. Itíll come out in a few months and weíre gonna have a fucking crazy party when it does. Youíre all invited to do the same. Some of the bands: Bad Religion, Lagwagon, Dropkick Murphys, Rise Against, NOFX, Frank Turner, Pennywise, Gaslight Anthem, Bouncing Souls. And about 20 moreÖ

I don't listen to a whole lot of punk rock anymore, but I'm very interested in this.

I was already very excited, but with those big names I'm even more. Also expecting other big names like Strung Out, Mad Caddies, Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, The Flatliners, Teenage Bottlerocket, The Lawrence Arms, The Menzingers...
