Sublime With Rome release Yours Truly
Yours Truly is the debut album by rock group Sublime with Rome, which was released on July 12, 2011.
It is the first album since the original Sublime disbanded in 1996, due to lead singer and guitarist Bradley Nowell's death. According to the liner notes, the album is dedicated to him. After the break up, its surviving members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh reformed Sublime in 2009 almost by accident, with Rome Ramirez filling in for Nowell. However, the group were unable to use the name Sublime for legal reasons, which resulted in the birth of Sublime with Rome. After embarking on their first US tour in 2010, Sublime with Rome signed with the record label Fueled by Ramen and went to work on its first full-length studio album. Guitarist Paul Leary of Butthole Surfers, who co-produced Sublime's eponymous final album, produced it.
Yours Truly met with critical acclaim at the time of its release and initally received positive reviews. "Panic" was released as the album's first single and it was successful, reaching #4 on Billboard's Alternative Songs and cracking the top 10 on the Rock Songs chart.
