Sublime: "Everything Under the Sun" Career-Spanning Box Set Out November 14th

"Ten years after Nowell's death, his music has found its own endless summer." -- ROLLING STONE

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 6, 2006 -- The Long Beach trio known as Sublime began with a gig on July 4th, 1988 that as legend tells ignited the infamous "Peninsula Riot." The chaos and excitement escalated over the next eight years, from the backyards of Long Beach and "40 Oz. to Freedom" to the national phenomenon of their breakthrough album, "Sublime." Sadly, the massive success of Sublime came in the wake of the tragic and untimely death of singer-songwriter-guitarist Bradley Nowell. But the music lives on.

Celebrating Sublime's legacy as one of the most influential bands of the '90s, the career-spanning multi-disc CD and DVD box set "Everything Under the Sun" will be released on November 14th, 2006 (Geffen/UMe/Gasoline Alley/Skunk), completing the band's discography and tying up loose ends for generations to come.

Simultaneously born from and representative of the inherent culture of Southern California, Sublime's music, created by Bradley, Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums), immediately fused aggressive surf-skate punk and d.i.y. hip-hop with classic dance hall and rock-steady reggae. Sublime's impact, from the early cult hit "Date Rape" to their multi-platinum major label debut, was at once both a sign of the times and ahead of the curve. The "Everything Under the Sun" box set will contain demo, live and alternate versions of classics from "40 Oz. to Freedom," "Robbin' the Hood," "Sublime" and "Second Hand Smoke" along with new and unreleased tracks and video. "Everything Under the Sun" highlights include a mid-'90s remix from the soon to be household name (and LBC homie) Snoop Dogg and a cover of the '60's Dee Dee Warwick (yes, the sister of Dionne) soul hit "Foolish Fool," demoed during the "Sublime" sessions. In 2006, David Kahne, who also produced the classics "What I Got," "April 29, 1992," "Doin' Time," and "Caress Me Down" on "Sublime," took the original "Foolish Fool" tracks and produced/mixed this final, never before heard version.
