Last July, we reported that Sublime With Rome, the new incarnation of Sublime, would begin pre-production on their new album in October. Well, in a recent interview Rome Ramirez has said that the band is taking a break from touring and has recently started working on their debut record (or the first Sublime record in 15 years or whatever). Asked in that interview how the album is sounding, Rome replied:
“It’s sounding great we are getting inspiration from all different genres. It will still sound like Sublime but for a new generation.”
The new record is slated for release this year. It will be the first full-length from the SoCal ska-punk pioneers Sublime since their 1996 multi platinum self-titled album, as well as the first album to be released under the moniker Sublime With Rome and the first to feature Rome as the late Bradley Nowell’s replacement.
