Dirty Heads' Tour with Sublime with Rome Is a "Dream Come True"

C Flanigan/WireImage for KAABOO Del Mar via imageSPACESummer is officially here, and Dirty Heads are teaming up with Sublime with Rome for a tour of seasonal fun, starting tonight, July 1, in St. Augustine, Florida. Having grown up with the music of Sublime, being able to hit the road with the new version of the band is a “dream come true” for the members of Dirty Heads.

“We never thought we’d be able to play on a stage with those guys,” vocalist Jared “Dirty J” Watson tells ABC Radio. “Now that we’re friends, kind of family, it’s pretty surreal when we were sitting in a bedroom being 15-years-old, listening to Sublime, trying to [think] ‘How do we do this? How do we figure this out?’ Now we’re going on tour with them, so it’s a dream come true. It’s really cool.”

The members of Dirty Heads and Sublime with Rome feel that their friendship comes through in their live show, too.

“I think when people kinda see us together on stage, Dirty Heads and Sublime with Rome, it’s like they really can see beyond the fact that, yeah, we have similar genres, but it’s more like they can tell that we’re just bros, we’re family, you know?” says Sublime with Rome’s Rome Ramirez. “We’ve known each other for many years now, so it’s like this cool kinda synergy on stage.”

That synergy will be on display all summer, as the two bands are planning many an onstage collaboration. Additionally, Dirty Heads will be debuting new music on the tour from their forthcoming self-titled album, which will be released July 15.

“We’re gonna play a lot of the new stuff the first two weeks, kinda gauge it, see what the fans like,” says Watson. “Then we’ll make our set from then on out when the album really comes out.”

Prophets of Rage Plan to Make the World Rage Again

Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesLater this summer, Prophets of Rage will be traveling through the U.S. on their Make America Rage Again tour. But the band doesn’t just want to make America rage — they want to make the world rage.

“We’ve already made plans to tour the world,” bassist Tim Commerford tells the U.K.’s TeamRock. “We are going to tour everywhere. We have to.”

Along with Commerford, Prophets of Rage features his fellow Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello and Brad Wilk, plus Public Enemy‘s Chuck D and Cypress Hill‘s B-Real.

“Chuck D always says, this is his word, that we are Earthassins,” says Commerford. “And we need to jam for the Earth. We need to destroy the Earth.”

Following a performance in Cleveland later this month, Prophets of Rage will embark on their Make America Rage Again tour starting August 19 in Fairfax, Virginia. The band has already had to move around and cancel some of their shows on the tour, which Commerford attributes to the group’s political nature.

“There’s been a change of plan because…the road is full of obstacles when you decide to be a political rock n’ roll band,” the bassist says. “Sometimes you have to change course, so we’ve had to change course a little bit.”

In related news, Commerford’s side project Wakrat will join AWOLNATION as the openers for Prophets of Rage on the Make America Rage Again tour.
