There's apparently more where Sublime's new "3 Ring Circus: Live at the Palace -- October 21, 1995" CD and DVD set came from.
Bud Gaugh, the group's drummer, tells us that in preparing the new concert set he, bassist Eric Wilson and the estate of the late frontman Bradley Newell discovered more treasures, including Vans Warped Tour footage from 1995, shows from New York and Chicago, and collaborations with the Wesley Willis Fiasco.
Gaugh says he fully expects that some of those will be released to the public as well: "Why not? Everybody seems to love it still. Why should we hold onto it and hoard it? Let's share the love. It's like our way of saying 'Thanks for so damn long' to everyone who's supported us."
Gaugh adds that the Sublime camp is currently "sifting through" the material and hasn't come up with firm release plans for any of it yet.
The "3 Ring Circus" set commemorates the 25th anniversary of Sublime's very first show, which took place July 4, 1988. Wilson continues to work with Rome Ramirez in the band Sublime With Rome, which Gaugh left in 2011.
