The wait is over! Sublime With Rome returns long at last with new music in 2018 to complement their first two album releases, Sirens, the 2015 effervescent follow up to the band’s 2011 debut release Yours Truly. “Wicked Heart” will be the first single out late July off their yet untitled upcoming album to come out around Spring 2019.

“We had more time, we know each other better now, and we’re even better musicians,” said Rome Ramirez, who was just 20-years-old when he embarked on this journey. With Sublime bassist and co-founder Eric Wilson anchoring the group, Sublime With Rome are armed with a new album that makes a real statement… their statement. Produced by Rob Cavallo, who has worked with Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Linkiin Park and many more, the latest release is an expression of three musicians who truly get each other and who communicate seamlessly through their instruments. The luxury of time had a huge impact on their approach to this all-important release, especially since the band went into the studio without any demos or songs ready to go! That might sound terrifying to some musicians, but Sublime With Rome were invigorated by the situation.

“We didn’t have any songs in our pockets,” the frontman said, confessing that while he liked the spontaneity, it also lit a fire under their collective ass. “We showed up to this big studio and we had nothing, so we had to make it grassroots. It felt refreshing to make things on the fly. It really came together with all of us in the room and we loved the result.”  He furthered, “Everything was recorded live and together. It’s a little tighter and edgier than our last two releases. We have a lot of influence from Eric and it definitely shows.”  Wilson concurred, saying, “It was great working with Rob, our chemistry was excellent. We had a great time recording the album in a totally organic way. There was no stress, even though we came up with stuff on the fly.” The album was recorded at famed Sonic Ranch nearby El Paso, Texas and in Los Angeles.

“It is a whole different feeling now,” Ramirez admitted. “Carlos is such a great guy and he is just as lighthearted, which is great on the road, since touring can be so serious and so tough. It has been more fun, really. It is a lot more relaxed, and that helps with everything. It’s like that everywhere. Studio. Stage. Bus. Wherever we are. We’ve moved forward, musically and on stage. He brings a great element. And while Ramirez pays the utmost respect to the original Sublime entity, since, as he admitted in the past, they were the first band that made him want to make, as opposed to just listen to, music, he knows Sublime With Rome are worthy of fan’s undivided attention. “This summer, I want fans to say, ‘I went to see Sublime With Rome and the new music is sick as fuck.’ We can do that by continuing to make better and better records,” he said. Ramirez even stated that he isn’t so much interested in the endgame or results as much as he is interested in writing music that is honest. And it’s Wilson who summed up how their new music is such an important record for the band. “I’m able play music for the love of music, just like I did back then. I am so fortunate to still be able to do it,” he said.

It’s Cody Johnson’s time.

After landing two releases in the Top 10 of Billboard’s country albums chart on his own CoJo label and selling 74,000 tickets for a single show, to earn recognition as the only unsigned artist in history to sell out NRG Stadium at RodeoHouston, one of Texas’ most-sought-after talents finally agreed to sign with a major label. Warner Music Nashville won a Music Row sweepstakes and enticed Johnson – who’d turned down several majors before – to join the team and take a shot at turning a concert success story into one with multimedia, national hit-making cred. Johnson’s passionate, rowdy concerts have already drawn comparisons to Garth Brooks, and the music from his previous albums – inspired by ‘90s country foundations, but built for the 21st century – has made him a familiar presence on Texas and Oklahoma red-dirt radio.

Pints for PEAKS Fall Brew Fest @ ZooMontana
Sep 21 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The 3rd Annual Pints for PEAKS Fall Brew Fest will be held at ZooMontana!   Join us on Saturday, September 21 from 3pm to 7pm for beer sampling and fun. There will also be wine and non-alcohol drinks and food trucks will be onsite. The event includes live music, a silent auction and a live auction.

P.E.A.K.S. (People Everywhere Are Kind and Sharing) was founded in 1988. The mission of PEAKS is to provide immediate, short term, non-medical assistance to cancer patients (in treatment) experiencing financial hardship. The help comes in many forms, but primarily grocery cards and fuel cards. In some situations money for childcare, utilities and other living expenses have also been granted. The help provided by PEAKS not only impacts the patient but also their families – all of whom are impacted by the cancer diagnosis.  All money raised through the Brew Fest goes to the patients we care for!
