"Look at All the Love We Found: A Tribute to Sublime" -- Friends Far and Wide Gather for Special Tribute to Be Released This Summer
Forthcoming Disc Includes Songs From No Doubt, Jack Johnson, Pennywise, Fishbone and Many More
LOS ANGELES, CA -- 04/06/2005 -- “Look at all the Love We Found: A Tribute to Sublime” is set to be released nationally on June 21, 2005. Nearly a decade since the release of the multi-platinum Sublime self-titled juggernaut, an amazing list of artists has convened to re-create many of these timeless classics. Included on this disc are previously unreleased tracks from No Doubt; Pennywise; Jack Johnson; Michael Franti & Spearhead with Gift of Gab; Mike Watt with Petra Haden and Stephen Perkins; Camper Van Beethoven; G Love; Ozomatli; Filibuster with Half Pint; Greyboy Allstars; Slightly Stoopid; Avail; the Ziggens; Bargain Music; Fishbone; Awol One & Abstract Rude.
Tragically, singer/songwriter/guitarist Bradley Nowell died hours after what would be the final Sublime show in May of 1996. Sublime has sold over 8 million of their self-titled record worldwide and it’s still SoundScanning 5,000 units a week in the U.S. Subsequent albums went platinum and the band has a combined worldwide sales-base of nearly 15 million, making them one of the top 10 selling rock bands of the ’90s.
The principals involved in the record have agreed to donate a sizeable portion of the proceeds from this album to two charities, Milagro Foundation and MusiCares’ MAP Fund. This tribute not only honors Sublime as a historic artist, but spreads their music to a new generation. Similarly, Deborah and Carlos Santana’s Milagro Foundation honors the arts by bringing music to underprivileged children who are not fortunate to have music in their everyday lives. Additionally, MusiCares’ MAP Fund will also benefit. Founded by musician and long time addiction recovery activist Buddy Arnold, the fund seeks to provide access to treatment for all musicians, regardless of their financial position.
The team assembled for this project is a partnership between members of the immediate Sublime family representing years of management, touring, grass roots marketing and general career building facets for the group. “Look at all the Love...” is being released on indie label and Skunk Records offspring, Cornerstone Recording Arts Society, in conjunction with Silverback Management and Martian Church, and will be distributed nationally. This has been a deeply personal and incredibly rewarding experience for each of these entities. Mindful of the band’s surviving members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh, the team strives for particular goals. “We want them to just be able to sit back, relax and hear some great artists paying tribute to the music they wrote,” explains Zach Fischel of Cornerstone R.A.S.
