LONG BEACH, Calif. (July 27, 2018) – Sublime with Rome released “Wicked Heart” today via 5 Music/RED MUSIC with an accompanying lyric video, marking a return by the ska-punk trio. “Wicked Heart” is the lead single off Sublime with Rome’s long-awaited third full-length, which is expected in Spring 2019. Produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Paramore, Linkin Park) and Andrew Goldstein (Robert DeLong, Blackbear, Lauv), the track features a gentle bass, crooning harmonies and a dancing guitar riff. Stream “Wicked Heart” here.
When asked what inspired the song, vocalist/guitarist Rome Ramirez shared: “My girl and I were talking one night… then boom! Things got heated, and all of the sudden this nice, fancy dinner turned into the Cold War. What started as something so nice and beautiful took such a wicked twist.”
