Sublime with Rome formed in 2009 after bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh decided that they didn't want to give up on their previous band. With the addition of Rome Ramirez, Sublime was born anew in the form of Sublime with Rome. After pushing through legal issues surrounding the name of the band, they were able to release their debut album in 2011.
Resurection with Rome
After Sublime frontman Bradley Nowell's death in 1996, bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh went on to start a few side projects before returning to form Sublime with Rome in 2009 with Rome Ramirez as the new singer and guitarist for the band. They played a few shows, including Cypress Hill Smokeout Festival before hitting a major roadblock. Sublime was trademarked solely to Nowell meaning that they couldn't perform under the name Sublime. The case was dropped three months later allowing the trio to perform as Sublime with Rome. They began touring just a month later, and Todd Foreman played both keyboards and saxophone as he did in the original Sublime recordings before releasing their first studio album Yours Truly in 2011. Drummer Bud Gaugh left the band at the end of the year. Sublime with Rome went four years before releasing their next album Sirens in 2015. In 2017, Sublime once again needed to find a new drummer shortly before going on tour with The Offspring. A couple of years later they released 2019's Blessings.
