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 Raman released the group's first album, Yours Truly. Gaugh left the band in 2015 and was replaced by Devo and Vandals drummer Josh Freese, who appeared on that year's album Sirens. ~ David Jeffries
