It is available for pre-order here.

Breakdown just seemed appropriate for what I was going through at the time. My relationship had fallen apart and I was dealing with it in some very unhealthy ways. The upside was I started writing lyrics for the first time in nearly a decade.

Alkaline Trio stream cover of No Use For A Name’s “Straight From The Jacket”

The gents in Alkaline Trio are streaming a cover of No Use For A Name‘s “Straight From The Jacket,” which will be appearing on “The Songs Of Tony Sly: A Tribute.” Here’s what frontman Matt Skiba had to say about the track and being included on the tribute album:

“Being a part of this tribute is an absolute honor. Tony was a beautiful human and an extremely talented songwriter. I first heard ‘Straight from the Jacket’ on a No Use for a Name record I bought as a kid and it has always been one of my favorite songs. To be able to cover this song in particular is very special for me and my band. We wanted to record the song in a different style than the original without taking away from its brilliance. We can only hope that Tony would approve.”

You can stream Alkaline Trio’s cover of “Straight From The Jacket” right here.

Fat Wreck Chords will be releasing “The Songs Of Tony Sly: A Tribute,” which will also feature No Use and Tony Sly covers from NOFX, Bad Religion, Strung Out, Rise Against, Pennywise, Lagwagon, and many others, on October 29th. Pre-orders are available here.
