Sublime Reuniting with new singer?

Although Sublime officially ceased to exist following the death of singer Bradley Nowell in May of 1996, the surviving members Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums) have recently jammed with an unknown-named singer and guitarist, who happens to be a huge fan of Sublime.

While there\’s not yet any talk of a new album and tour, sources say that Sublime (with a new singer) will perform together for the first time in 13 years in May 2009 at The Bamboozle in East Rutherford, New Jersey, along wth NOFX and Gorilla Biscuits. It is unknown at this time whether those rumors are true or false.

Sublime\’s last album, which is self-titled, was released only two months after Nowell\’s tragic and unexpected death. The album was a huge commercial success, spawning a number of popular singles “What I Got”, “Santeria”, “Wrong Way” , “Doin\’ Time”, “April 29, 1992 (Miami)” and “Caress Me Down”, and went 5x platinum in the US, despite lack of support through touring.

Alright so I dont know if this is such a great idea.  These boys tried there hardest with the band Long Beach Dub Allstars and that was obviously a wash.  I dont see Nirvana reuniting with a singer that is not named Kurt Cobain anytime soon.  Sublime was one of the most influential bands of our time and most of the credit can be place on the shoulders of Bradley Nowell.  I hope that this doesnt ruin our perception about the band because this attempt of re-creation destroys everything that this band was in the late 80’s and 90’s.  Let the boys play, by all means, but lets get a new name.

  1. well its hard for a band to replace a singer, because that is already going to change their sound. But there are many bands that changed their front man and became even bigger. like AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Helloween etc.
    Hope it goes well
