Alternative rock reggae favorites Sublime with Rome return to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre for two nights on Thursday, July 25 and Friday, July 26, 2019 along with special guests Michael Franti & Spearhead and Common Kings.
The wait is over! Sublime with Rome returned at long last with new music in 2018 to complement their first two album releases, “Sirens”, the 2015 effervescent follow up to the band’s 2011 debut release “Yours Truly”. “Wicked Heart” was the first single out in late July of 2018 off their yet untitled upcoming album to be released sometime this spring. “We had more time, we know each other better now, and we’re even better musicians,” said Rome Ramirez, who was just 20-years-old when he embarked on this journey. With Sublime bassist and co-founder Eric Wilson anchoring the group, Sublime withRome are armed with a new album that makes a real statement…their statement.
Michael Franti believes that the great battle taking place in the world today is between cynicism and optimism because he feels it in himself. So he made an album to remind himself, and anyone else who’s listening, that there is still good in the world and that it is worth fighting for. The album “Stay Human Vol. II”, which is an accompaniment to the film Stay Human, is all about how we hold on to our humanity in the challenging times we are living in today, and features 14 uplifting, life-affirming songs that, at their core, are about being your authentic self and standing up for the greater good.
Common Kings’ style and music is a collection of inspirations orchestrated into an array of head rocking beats, feel good vibes, and emotional fever. Their crazy, fun-loving attitude compliments Common Kings’ live sound, producing phenomenal pop hits with rock, reggae, and R&B influences. These influences originate from each band members love for various genres, and widespread knowledge of music.
