Founding members of legendary Ska band Sublime, along with a new frontman, singer/guitarist Rome, will tour Australia in April next year. Sublime (with Rome), will be playing classic hits to fans across our country.
One of the most notable and successful ska-punk bands of all time, Sublime has sold over 17 million albums worldwide. To this day, the group’s landmark debut album 40oz. to Freedom, lo-fi follow-up Robbin’ the Hood, and multi-platinum self-titled major label debut (a virtual greatest hits set in itself) are all widely regarded as music collection staples.
Formed in Long Beach in 1988, Sublime’s final performance was in the spring of 1996 after the death of original singer Bradley Nowell. In 2008, Rome, a 21-year-old northern California native, was introduced to Gaugh and Wilson. Last year a handful of jam sessions led to an impromptu show at a small club in Nevada, flooring a packed-house crowd.
“Sublime has so many fans and attracts new fans every year who were never able to see Sublime perform live after Bradley passed away,” said Troy Nowell-Holmes, Bradley Nowells’ widow. “One of the inspirations for forming ‘Sublime with Rome’ was to bring Brad’s spirit in his music back to the fans and to give the new fans a glimpse of what it was like to see Sublime live.”
As a special treat for Australian Sublime fans, the band will be joined nationally by very special guest Mat McHugh from The Beautiful Girls.
