Sublime lawsuit settled, band to continue. Sort of.

OC Weekly reports:

And here comes the whole "breaking news" aspect of the post: According to a credible source, the lawsuit has just been settled and Sublime, or what's left of Sublime, will henceforth be called Sublime With Rome.

Oh, and also: Sublime (With Rome, pictured below middle) already has 150 show dates in store, which we assume, will soon be announced.

[image-1]A drug overdose took Bradley Nowell two months before their breakthrough album dropped and sold millions of copies. Unfortunate timing for Bud and Eric who kept the Sublime spirit alive a few years longer with Long Beach Dub All Stars. Back then, they claimed putting the name Sublime to rest was the best way to honor Nowell. Over a decade later, is respect for their friend's legacy no longer important?

I called 'bullshit' when Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh reformed Sublime with an unknown frontman, 21-year-old Rome Ramirez. So did the family, heirs and estate of their deceased original mainman Bradley Nowell. It didn't take long until a judge weighed in on the family's side. Now, it seems a compromise has been reached!

Sublime will return! Sort of.
