Frank Turner, The Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon and NOFX are just some of the artists to feature on 'The Songs Of Tony Sly: A Tribute'.

The 26-track compilation is being released in honour of the late frontman of punk band No Use For A Name and sees a host of fellow punk and rock artists covering his work. Tony Sly passed away on July 31, 2012, at the age of 41. Profits from the sale of the album will go to the Tony Sly Memorial Fund, which has been founded to help Sly's wife, Brigitte, and their two daughters. For more information on the fund, visit: Tonysly.org

The tribute album also features contributions from Rise Against, Bad Religion, The Bouncing Souls, Pennywise, Alkaline Trio and Anti-Flag. It will be released on October 29 on the Fat Wreck Chords label.

In a statement about the album, NOFX and Fat Wreck Chords' Fat Mike wrote: "What I wanted to show on this record is how amazing Tony's songs are. You can tell a song is great when it can be done in any style and it's still great. That's what this comp is about. All the bands are doing No Use For A Name songs or Tony Sly songs with their own take. It's a real tribute to his songwriting... 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."
