Although all Sublime fans miss Bradley Nowell, I think all Sublime fans can also agree that the band is going in a cool new direction, with Rome. Rome brings a unique style to the group, using his vocally ability to contribute to the sound of the group, without trying to replace the original frontman. Having seen the band live, I can attest that it completes the puzzle. That being said, new crew/new name, Sublime with Rome have dropped their first single, Panic. It’s compacted with killer vocals, great drums, and extremely tight guitar riffs; not to forget the horns that set the track off. At first I thought that the band was going in so many directions, and wondered why they were trying to fix something that wasn’t broken, but once I saw how hard they were pursuing this Sublime with Rome to work, I figured why not give it a shot, and I’m glad I did.

This track states: “My only motive, do or nothing, we’ve got the reason, if you really wanna show it.”

The motive is the love of music.

Although nothing will compare to the Sublime of the 90’s, Rome comes up strong in second place. Their debut album Yours Truly will be out for release on July 12th. They will be on the road with 311 this summer, so be sure to get a taste of the group for yourself.
