Sublime With Rome Goes Big

Sublime With Rome has slotted more than 30 gigs this summer for its biggest North American tour to date. The trek features support from Rebelution, Pepper and Mickey Avalon.

The trek is timed to coincide with the release of the follow-up to the act’s 2011 debut, Yours Truly. The as-yet-untitled LP is due out sometime this summer. Sublime With Rome – which features vocalist/guitarist Rome, drummer Josh Freese and original Sublime bassist Eric Wilson – once again worked with longtime producer Paul Leary and recently finished tracking the album. More details, including pre-order information, will be announced soon.
