Tony Sly is in the holiday spirit as he just posted a brand new track titled “The Shortest Pier” off his upcoming solo album titled the 12 Song Program due out February 16th. Tony Sly had this to say about the track “This is one of my favorite songs on the new record. It’s pretty dark and moody with sort of an uplifting sounding chorus yet really miserable lyrics about dealing with life by combating it with booze.” Now, go cozy up with your spiked eggnog and pre-order your copy right now by clicking here.

Additionally, Tony Sly has announced tour plans for 2010 which include a west coast run with Chris Shiflett from the Foo Fighters and a European tour with Joey Cape. Click here to view the dates! To delve a little deeper into what motivated Tony Sly to release a solo record, read below:
I decided to do a solo record because I had some song ideas that wouldnât work for No Use. Iâve been wanting to do this for several years but I just never had the time. I also wanted to get some of my more folky influences on a record. I think youâll hear that this is not an acoustic NUFAN record. I think some songs just canât be made into punk songs like some punk songs canât be made into acoustic songs. I also like the idea of having the freedom of playing shows on the fly, being able to show up at a bar with just a guitar and have enough material to play for an hour or so. Iâm getting some good feedback and good tours lined-up for 2010. Should be interesting.
