APA Signs Sublime with Rome
Band says "We are stoked to be back at APA where we started many years ago"
Sublime with Rome has signed with APA for worldwide representation, it was announced today. The group that includes Sublime co-founder and bassist Eric Wilson and vocalist and guitarist Rome Ramirez, who joined the newly band in 2009 — 13 years after the death of Sublime's original singer Bradley Nowell — was welcomed to the agency by Steve Lassiter, Andy Somers, and Heath Baumhor. The reggae, ska and punk band is playing a number of festivals this summer including One Cali Love Fest in their hometown of Long Beach, Calif. on Feb. 10 and the Days on the Green festival April 20.
"We’re thrilled to be working with Sublime with Rome again,” commented Lassiter, svp partner and head of concerts at APA Nashville. "The upcoming third album and tour are going to be amazing, and we’re all so excited to be a part of this next chapter in their extraordinary journey."
The band is also planning a spring tour around their third album Blessings, set for release in June. Last month the band released the song "Spiderweb," a follow-up to the "Wicked Heart" which they dropped in December.
“We are stoked to be back at APA where we started many years ago, as the saying goes it's ALWAYS great to go home!" the band said in a statement.
Formed in 2009, Sublime with Rome carries on the legacy of legendary ska-punk band known for their hits “Wrong Way,” “Santeria” and “What I Got.” Their 2011 debut album, "Yours Truly," reached No. 9 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, No. 3 on Billboard’s Current Rock Album chart, and No. 6 on Billboard’s Current Digital Album chart.
