It's been close to 14 years since Sublime's self titled major label debut hit the shelves and quickly became an overnight success. The Long Beach based band's tunes starting spreading across America like wild fire. The flame burned so bright that the album quickly went platinum despite the fact that the bands' lead singer and guitar player, Bradley Nowell, had tragically passed away of a heroin overdose only a month earlier. With no band and seemingly no tour to promote the album, what would happen next could only be attributed to the power of the songs that had been written and pieced together over the life of the band.
