In a new interview with KCTV5, the new touring Sublime With Rome, have hinted at plans for a new album. Frontman Rome Ramirez discussed the possibility of new material, the likes of which has not been heard from any Sublime incarnation since the death of vocalist and songwriter Bradley Nowell just before the release of their successful album, Sublime in 1996. He said this:
My expectation is to do our best. We expect to play really good. If we're not playing good, we're not doing this, we're not doing something right. But further than the tour, our expectations are to get in the studio and write the next great album of the decade.
The band debuted a new song, "Panic," when performing live on Jimmy Kimmel. Check that out here.
The band features the founding Sublime rhythm section of drummer Bud Gaugh and bassist Eric Wilson with new singer-guitarist Rome Ramirez. They assumed the slightly modified name after settling a lawsuit with the family of deceased founding member and singer Bradley Nowell over its use. This years tours will be Gaugh and Wilson's first tour under the name Sublime ("With Rome" or otherwise) in nearly 14 years. They are on the road now.
