Rome Ramirez, the front man for Sublime with Rome took some time from the tour to call into TBB and talk to Ange Alex.

Sublime was an American reggae/ska/alternative rock band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988.  The band’s line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Bud Gaugh (drums and percussion), and Eric Wilson (bass guitar).  Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996 and Sublime immediately split up. In 2009, the surviving members decided to reform the band with Rome Ramirez as Nowell’s replacement.

They released their debut album Yours Truly on July 12, 2011.
