Sublime To Release New Album
Sublime recently signed with a new record label will be putting out a new album this summer. Well technically its Sublime but the bands name is now called Sublime with Rome.
This Summer, Sublime will release its first album since Bradley Nowell died in 1996. The band now called Sublime with Rome - features surviving members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson with twenty-two year old Rome Ramirez, who joined the group in two years ago.
The band is currently recording in El Paso, Texas with producer Paul Leary, who worked with the band on their self-titled 1996 LP. “Everything’s been going amazing in the studio," Ramirez said in a statement. "The music has been coming along great, and we’re confident that we’re making a record that will stand the test of time. We can’t wait for the fans to hear it, and are already planning a world tour to bring it to them live.”
After Brad died, the remaining members carried on. Sublime tribute bands such as Badfish began performing for huge crowds, and in 2009 Wilson and Gaugh recruited Ramirez began performing as Sublime until Nowell's estate filed a laswuit claiming they didn't own the rights to that name. After settling, the band was renamed to Sublime with Rome.
“Sublime with Rome earned the fans' approval with their live performances by showing it was never about replacing or forgetting Brad - it was about celebrating the music," Nowell's widow Troy Nowell-Holmes said in a statement. "And now the next chapter begins. Rome is such a great songwriter and with Bud and Eric's amazing talent to back him up, Sublime with Rome will thrive and shine in its own right. I can't wait to hear the new material because I know how talented they all are.”
