Sublime With Rome — which currently has no members of the original ska band — is embarking on a farewell tour. This comes after the founding members of Sublime announced their rebrand with singer Jakob Nowell, the son of original Sublime singer Bradley Nowell.

The tour kicks off April 11 in Catoosa, Okla., and runs until Sept. 14 in Kansas City, Mo. Sublime With Rome, which formed in 2010 to carry on Sublime’s legacy after Bradley Nowell’s death in 1996, will also release a final single titled “Love Is Dangerous.”

The final Sublime With Rome tour will feature Rome Ramirez leading a band comprising drummer Joe Tomino, bassist Brian Allen and Gabrial McNair on the trombone and keys. Original Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh and bassist Eric Wilson co-founded Sublime With Rome in 2010 with Ramirez, but Gaugh left the group in December 2011 and was replaced by Josh Freese. The offshoot band underwent a few other lineup changes throughout the years, and in February 2024 Wilson announced on Instagram he would no longer be performing with Sublime With Rome — only the new Sublime with Jakob Nowell.

The dates for Sublime With Rome’s farewell tour overlap with Sublime’s dates with Nowell. Sublime — that is Nowell, Gaugh and Wilson — will perform at Coachella on April 13 and 20. Sublime With Rome will be in Texas, Connecticut and New Jersey during those dates.

Ramirez said in a statement, “I’m beyond excited to announce our upcoming farewell tour! As we gear up to hit your city, the excitement is brewing. Get ready for an epic night filled with not only the Sublime hits but a special focus on never-before-heard SWR originals. This tour is a unique opportunity to celebrate the incredible journey we’ve had together with our fans. Join us for an unforgettable evening as we reminisce and create lifelong memories. Let’s make this farewell tour one for the books!”
