Music News: Sublime Teases Release of New Music

Ska Punk legends Sublime are reuniting, with Sublime with Rome now no longer active, Bradley Nowell’s son Jakob will be taking his dad’s place in the iconic ska punk band.

Speaking to SPIN, bass player Bud Gaugh revealed that there is a very good chance that we will be seeing new music released from the band at some point:

“We’ll see how it goes from the rehearsals, but I’m pretty certain we’re gonna see some music coming out with this project.”

Music News: Sublime Reunion Could Bring New Music

Sublime were originally active between 1988 and 1996 before frontman Bradley Nowell tragically died from a heroin overdose at the age of 28.

With the inclusion of Bradley’s son Jakob in the band going forward, it’s clear that the prior legal issues of using the name ‘Sublime’ are no longer there, seeing as it was Bradley’s estate threatening legal action that caused ‘Sublime with Rome’ to become the name of the band for many years.

Jakob said during the SPIN interview that he felt like he had to join the band: “I’m sorry, but without one of the original members of the band, that’s not Sublime. It’s something totally different. And if Eric wants to do Sublime with Bud, and they want me to sing in the band, I felt like I had this custodial duty to pay my respect and homage.”

Considering how tragic it was for the band to lose Bradley at such a young age, seeing his son take up the mantle is pretty cool.
