Founding members of Sublime, drummer Bud Gaugh and bass player Eric Wilson will officially take to the stage once again; with new frontman, singer/guitarist Rome. Dubbed Sublime with Rome, the group will reintroduce themselves and Sublime's music to fans across the country with an intimate theater tour. Rome, a 21-year-old northern California native, was introduced to Gaugh and Wilson in 2008. Last year, a handful of jam sessions led to an impromptu show at a small club in Nevada flooring a packed-house crowd. The trio later performed a one-off at the Smokeout Festival last fall and was a surprise special guest at the infamous KROQ Acoustic Christmas show, before officially announcing themselves as Sublime with Rome. Currently, the new hit single "Lay Me Down" by the Dirty Heads (co-written by and featuring Rome) is racing up the radio charts across the U.S. Portions of the proceeds from the shows will go to benefit an addiction recovery program currently being developed to financially assist underprivileged teens and adolescents, in honor of Sublime's fallen singer/songwriter Bradley Nowell, who succumbed to his own addiction when he passed away in May 1996.
