Sublime's recording history began in early '92 when they teamed up with Long Beach's legendary SKUNK RECORDS to create a cult masterpiece '40 oz. TO FREEDOM.' Blending a love of dance-hall and rock-steady reggae rhythms with an aggressive punk ethic, sublime spread its garage hall gospel all across America, creating a rabid, grass-roots following everywhere they went, especially in the surf/skate/snowboard communities. SUBLIME is not just a band, but a direct representation of a culture inherent to Southern California's beach cities. The tragic death of singer/songwriter/ guitarist Brad Nowell cut the band's goal of a long-term career short but his spirit lives on in the endless summertime.
