After frontman Bradley Nowell's death brought an end to the group Sublime
, surviving members Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums) formed the Long Beach Dub All-Stars
before returning to the Sublime
catalog in 2009 with a revised lineup named Sublime with Rome.
The "Rome" is Rome Ramirez, a singer/guitarist with whom band first played some gigs in 2009 as Sublime
. They became Sublime with Rome a year later, the result of a legal hang-up with Nowell's estate, and launched a cross-country tour of America. In 2011, Fueled by Ramen released the group's first album, Yours Truly. Gaugh left the band in 2015 and was replaced by Devo
drummer Josh Freese
, who appeared on that year's album Sirens. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
