Framing Hanley is set to release their sophomore album A Promise To Burn, May 25th via Silent Majority Group/ILG. The double disc package includes a 30 minute DVD, featuring exclusive behind the scenes footage and interviews, shot in HD, during the recording process of A Promise To Burn. “You Stupid Girl”, the first single off of A Promise to Burn is available as an instant grat track when pre-ordering the album. Limited edition t-shirts and autographed CD/DVDs bundles are also available for pre-order. You can preview a clip of the single on Framing Hanley’s Myspace page and to hear an acoustic version of “You Stupid Girl”, head over to Alternative Press. “Back To Go Again”, another new song, is currently available as an exclusive stream at AbsolutePunk.net
The CD/DVD deluxe package includes 13 tracks and behind the scenes making of the record DVD. Lead singer Nixon describes the album by saying, “I think there’s definitely a bit of a departure from our first record, but you can hear the transition from the old Framing Hanley to the new Framing Hanley throughout these songs,” Nixon says. “Everything that we did happened naturally on its own and led to the creation of this record. We didn’t go into it thinking we had something to prove to anyone, we just wanted to do something we were very, very happy about.”
Look out for a clip from the DVD featured on Ultimate-Guitar later this week.
Egyptian Room - Old National Center | Indianapolis, IN | 04/29/10
An eclectic group gathered at the Egyptian Room at the Murat Center on Thursday night to see the reincarnated Sublime with Rome. The air was electric as they took the stage, and the room exploded in screams and applause when they hit the first notes of their popular song “Date Rape.” New lead singer, Rome Ramirez, accomplished the unimaginable by nearly channeling the late Bradley Nowell’s smoky voice and impeccable flow. Any fears of simply seeing a Sublime cover band were quickly dismissed as the combined talent of the group proved that they deserved everyone’s undivided attention.
Formed in 1988 in Long Beach,CA, Sublime introduced a unique sound to the mainstream by mixing elements of punk, reggae, hip-hop and rock. Due to the runaway success of their debut album 40oz to Freedom they were asked to headline the inaugural Vans Warped Tour and SnoCore Tour. Their follow up self-titled album included the hits “Wrong Way,” “Santaria” and “What I’ve Got,” the band’s only number one single.
Sublime broke up in 1996 immediately after lead singer Bradley Nowell died of a heroine overdose, just months after the release of their third album. During the band’s absence, their fan base continued to expand as their cult-popularity grew on college campuses across the country. To meet demand, the band continued to release albums of older recordings, box sets and even a Greatest Hits album. Remaining Sublime members including Bud Gaugh (drums) and Eric Wilson (bassist) formed a new band in 1997 called the Long Beach Dub Allstars.
In 2009, they announced their return featuring a new lead singer, Ramirez, who ironically was born the same year Sublime was founded. They announced that they would tour as Sublime, but executors of Nowell’s estate filed a lawsuit requiring them to use a different name to protect the trademark and avoid confusion. It was only recently determined that the new band could use the name Sublime with Rome. The band is touring this summer to promote their reunion and a new project called “Brad’s House,” a free addiction-recovery program for teens in memory of Nowell.
The mass-appeal of Sublime was undeniable last night, as people from all walks of life packed against the stage shoulder-to-shoulder. Many of the young people at the show weren’t even alive when Sublime released their debut album. The band’s influence was palpable as openers The Dirty Heads warmed up the crowd, delivering dub soaked beats mixed with elements of rock and hip-hop. Their unique cover of “Paint It Black” even managed to get the people in the very back nodding their heads and moving up closer to the front of the room.
The amount of audience participation during the show was incredible. It was clear that most of the fans knew all the words to every Sublime song ever released and savored hearing it performed live for the first time. Nearly every song became a massive sing-along, none of which was organized by the band, but started organically in the crowd each time. The atmosphere felt like a house party, with bodies swaying, hips shaking and arms moving in the air in time to the comforting sound of everyone’s favorite party music.
Sublime with Rome played every hit single you’d expect to hear along with some lesser known songs for the die-hard fans. Their high-energy performance and uncompromising enthusiasm gave the crowd an opportunity to savor the nostalgia and rediscover the music they fell in love with years ago. It also afforded them an opportunity to reach new expectant ears that were hearing some of those songs for the first time.
