Sublime is back, under a new name, "Sublime With Rome"

Sublime is one of my all time favorite bands so of course it was tragic when their lead singer/guitarist Brad Nowell passed away before they even gained mainstream popularity.

I was listening to some old Sublime songs the other day and decided to look them up just to see if there was anything new going on with the band.  Turns out there is a lot going on!  The original members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh have reformed the band again with a new singer named Rome Ramirez. The band now goes under the official name Sublime with Rome

When I first heard of this, I was skeptical.  I mean Brad was a legend and no one will ever replace him, so how good can this be right?  So I check them out with the new singer Rome.  To my surprise, he is actually very good!  He can play guitar, has a good voice, and he sounds remarkably similar to Brad.

The new Sublime has a new album called Yours Truly which comes out July 12th.  I for one am looking forward to it.  From what I have heard, the new line up sounds very much like the old Sublime and even the new original songs are good.

Check out one of their new songs here called Panic:
