Billboard reported that Get Free will be released by Fueled By Ramen on August 12. The first single, "If the World," is going to be released in upcoming weeks.
Rome has been working on his solo debut in El Paso, Texas along with producer/songwriter Dave Bassett. Bassett has worked with bands like Shinedown and Halestorm. Get Free will feature 10 tracks, some of which will include Rome playing instruments. The album will also feature drummers Michael McDermott of Bouncing Souls and Rome's Sublime with Rome bandmate Josh Freese.
Rome recently spoke about what his vision is for this first solo record. "Creating 'Get Free' was a liberating experience that showcases everything I have learned and experienced to this point. It was a wicked roller coaster that was written and recorded in the desert of El Paso, Texas, with the Mexican Cartel right beneath our feet. I couldn't be any more anxious to release this to the world," said Rome.
Even though Rome is working on a solo project, Sublime with Rome is still together, making music and making headlines.
Sublime with Rome recently made headlines for having the police called on them for smoking an illegal substance at the KMFA Day concert at Tucson Electric Park, TMZ reported.
