Breaking News! Sublime To Release An Album This Summer


Sublime, now Sublime with Rome, has signed to Fueled by Ramen and is set to release their first album since singer Bradley Nowell died in 1996. The group reformed in 2009 with singer Rome Ramirez, and after touring the country and gathering the approval of fans across the country, as well as the Nowell estate – which had previously brought legal action against the band for using the name Sublime, hence Sublime with Rome.

Sublime With Rome

I have no idea what to expect. Nowell was an absolute genius of a songwriter, his relaxed fusion of punk, funk, reggae, ska, folk, surf and everything inbetween was seamless and remains on a level above all followers. Nowell’s wife herself has stated she is excited for the group’s new material, calling Rome an excellent new frontman. I’ve seen videos of the new group performing live, and Rome seems to fit into the band quite well, but performing the songs live, is much different then actually writing them, especially when under the constant pressure of Sublime’s massive and dedicated cult following. There’s still several months before the release, but I will keep you updated as more details are released.
