BREAKING: Sublime Lawsuit Settled; Showdates Planned

So the last we heard from the Long Beach-based Sublime, their future as a band was in jeopardy. As you know, after original lead singer Bradley Nowell had died of a heroin overdose in 1996 and the remaining members of Sublime decided to reform in 2009 with a new lead singer, 21-year-old Rome Ramirez.

The estate of Nowell, however, wasn't too pleased: Nowell's wife, son and father issued a statement stating their full support for bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh--just not under the Sublime name, which Nowell had trademarked.

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) already has 150 show dates in store, which we assume, will soon be announced. Check back here for more updates.
