Sublime fans will be pleased to hear that the controversy surrounding the band’s name has been resolved, and original members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh will be hitting the road in April with new frontman Rome Ramirez, under the banner “Sublime with Rome”.
Fourteen years after the death of founding member Bradley Nowell, the group is excited to be officially touring again and have the chance to play their hits live.
Bassist Wilson explains, “Many of our songs have never been performed live, most notably our self-titled release. Songs such as ‘April 26, 1992,’ ‘Under My Voodoo,’ ‘Burritos’ and even ‘What I Got’ will all get their proper stage debuts.”
So far, the band has announced a six-date tour, with more shows to come. Portions of proceeds from the shows will go to support an addiction recovery program that is being created to help underprivileged youth. The program is of course in honor of Nowell, who struggled with a drug addiction that ultimately took his life.
Tickets for these shows will be available fore presale starting March 2nd, and more dates will be scheduled, so watch Sublime with Rome’s web site for updates.
