“It’s not so much that he’s not coming back. Both parties are happy with where we are at. Never is a very strong word, so, I’ll never say never-to quote the wonderful Justin Bieber. I will say that we are really happy where we are at in the band with Josh Freese. Bud is in a kid’s band right now sort of like The Wiggles and I think he’s really stoked on that, we tour a lot, and he can be home more; so we are all happy just doing our own separate thing.”
Bud Gaugh has since been replaced by Josh Freese (The Vandals, Devo, Guns N’ Roses, A Perfect Circle, touring member of Nine Inch Nails, and session musician for The Offspring, Social Distortion, Suicidal Tendencies, etc.). Sublime With Rome is currently working on a new album for a 2015 release.
