Sublime with Rome is a collaboration between Eric Wilson of the legendary band Sublime and gifted songwriter and musician Rome Ramirez.

A sold-out tour in March 2010 led to Sublime with Rome entering the studio to begin recording its debut album Yours Truly, released in the summer of 2011. Songs like “Panic,” “Take It Or Leave” and “You Better Listen” are reminiscent of vintage Sublime, while songs like “Lover’s Rock” and “Murdera” pick up on the reggae dancehall style the band began exploring in 1996.
