Chris Rest (Lagwagon) talks about traveling and playing with Tony Sly

Posted by vdubowner on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 6:00 PM (PST)

Since the tribute album to Tony Sly has been released, many personalities from bands who contributed to the Fat Wreck Chords comp have stopped by Tonysly.org to explained how Tony influenced them or to talk about the song they covered on the album.

Most recently, Lagwagon guitarist and former No Use For A Name member Chris Rest has wrote a piece on how it was to play and tour with Tony Sly.

Here’s what he had to say:

“As a musician, once in a while you see a band and think, “Wow, I wish I was in this band.” No Use was one of those bands for me. It was always obvious to me that their songs and talent was beyond the level of an average punk band. But it was their personalities and overall dynamic that really made them so cool. Tony is one of the funniest and smartest people I’ve ever known. His talent was always obvious. One day, out of the blue, I received a call from Tony asking if I wanted to audition for No Use. Lagwagon was not doing much of anything at the time and I was working as a care giver for an elderly woman. I was initially surprised but flattered and I accepted. Our first tour was to Indonesia, Malaysia, China and Japan. I quickly realized even more than before, the extent of Tony’s talent and the band’s potential. None of us had ever been to Indonesia, Malaysia or China and we played many smaller cities in Japan that bands don’t normally go to, which made it a new experience for all of us. I can’t really recall many tours that I had a better time on. I quickly became very close friends with Tony, Matt and Rory. When Rory left the band I recommended my good friend, Boz Rivera to take his place. Matt and Boz playing together was an awesome thing to behold. They fed off of each other’s musical abilities. With that, combined with Tony’s songwriting, I was quite sure that the the next album to come out of this band was going to be something very special. To be a part of it, I’m sure, was going to be something I would have really been proud of. I am proud and grateful to have been lucky enough to have experienced the times that I did, playing, touring and just hanging out with Tony and to have had his friendship. I will Never Forget Tony Sly.”

Chris Rest and Lagwagon covered Tony’s “Discomfort Inn” on the tribute album “The Songs Of Tony Sly: A Tribute,” released on October 29th through Fat Wreck Chords.

Joey Cape talks about Lagwagon’s upcoming album “Hang”

Posted by Lauren Mills on Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 8:09 AM (PST)

Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape talked to RMP Magazine about the band’s upcoming album “Hang.” You can check out an excerpt about what fans can expect from the album below.

Joey Cape: Well, it sounds like a Lagwagon album but maybe it is a little bit more focused on more guitar riffy stuff we used to do in the older days. And there’s a lot less pop on the record, it’s really aggressive and there are the lyrics I wrote over about two years’ time, which sort of make it’s a conceptual record. In loose terms, it’s kind of social commentary on now, what I see. And I’m really happy with it, I mean the most happy I’ve ever been time with any record I ever made. The whole bands is proud of the record and excited to play this record. This thing when you make a good record and you know it, you feel like you can’t wait to play those new songs. Which we’re not doing as we’re waiting to play the songs until the album comes out. It’s almost painful on this tour because maybe at a soundcheck we’re playing one of the new songs but we can’t play them in the set.

You can read the full interview here. Hang is set to be released on October 28th through Fat Wreck Chords. It will be the band’s first full-length in nearly a decade, serving as a follow-up to 2005′s Resolve.
