We called it last month, but Sublime–now, post-legal battles, officially known as Sublime With Rome–has formally announced their spring tour. Founding members, drummer Bud Gaugh and bass player Eric Wilson, will be hitting the road with new frontman, 21-year-old Rome Ramirez.
Ramirez first performed with Gaugh and Wilson in 2009, including a one-off at Smokeout and an appearance at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas (pictured above, for more images, just click here). Though, as you know, the estate of original lead singer, Bradley Nowell, however, wasn't too pleased: Nowell's wife, son and father issued a statement
stating their full support for bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud
Gaugh–just not under the Sublime name, which Nowell had trademarked.
Now that everything's been settled, the Long Beach band has an official new name (and a new website: SublimeWithRome.com) and will be embarking on a six date tour (so far, at least) this spring, including a Los Angeles date.
Further details after the jump!
