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.”
