Fueled By Ramen recording artist Rome has announced details of a string of California headline tour dates. The dates support his recently released new single “Terrorista,” and herald the imminent release of his eagerly awaited, as-yet-untitled new record due to arrive this coming fall.
Rome will hit the road beginning April 4th at San Juan Capistrano, California’s Coach House and then continue on through April 12th where the tour will eventually wrap up at Sainte Rock in Hermosa Beach, CA (see attached itinerary). Tickets for all dates will go on sale this Friday, March 7th. For complete details and ticket information, please see www.romemusica.com.
Rome commented, “Finally I get to hit the road and play some new songs for you! This is the most exciting thing to me. I’ve been dying to play this new music all over and it’s starting with California. Come to a show and say ‘what up?’ This is going to be a really scaled down and intimate tour that I wanted to provide for you guys to hear the music before it hits stores! Thanks so much for your love and support. Can’t wait to meet some of you.”
The California trek will see Rome debuting new material from his forthcoming record, which includes his latest single “Terrorista.” The track premiered this past December along with the companion Paul Coy Allen directed music video, which can be viewed on Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube Page. “Terrorista” is now available for download via the iTunes Store.
California born and bred singer/songwriter Rome Ramirez first began playing guitar at age 11, and, almost prophetically, many of the first songs he learned were by the famed ska punk band Sublime. Through his teenage years, Rome honed his musical chops and songwriting skills, and, in 2009, met Sublime co-founder/bassist Eric Wilson who was recording at the same studio.
What started out as a jam session soon developed into a friendship and creative bond. Rome’s first major performance as the frontman for Sublime with Rome came in October 2009 at Cypress Hill’s annual Smokeout Festival in front of 20,000 fans. The following year, Rome co-wrote and provided guest vocals on SoCal reggae rock band The Dirty Heads’ #1 single “Lay Me Down.”
In 2011, Sublime with Rome released “YOURS TRULY,” the band’s first full length album in over a decade. Produced by Paul Leary, “YOURS TRULY” simultaneously picked up where Sublime had left off and took their artistic vision to the next level, thanks to the fresh infusion of energy from Rome, who brought in lyrics, melodies, and music he’d written over the past few years. “Panic” proved a top 5 Modern Rock hit, and was followed by “Take It Or Leave It,” which garnered cross-country radio airplay.
