Black Tide Set To Release New Album This Fall
June 21, 2010
Black Tide broke onto the music scene in a big way in 2008 with their fist-pumping, fret-burning, fast-paced metallic anthems on their Interscope Records debut 'Light From Above'. Now the Florida based quartet is at Spin Studios in New York recording their follow-up with producers GGGarth (Rage Against The Machine, Rise Against) and Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God). The as-yet-untitled sophomore set will be released fall 2010.

'Light From Above'
was released in March 2008 and garnered instant acclaim stateside with Rolling Stone naming the band one of the "Best Rookies of 2008" and "Metal's New Teen Titans." (As if any self respecting metalhead gives a fuck what Rolling Stone thinks is 'Metal' - Ed.) Spin Magazine went on to tap them as one of the "Next Big Things" and overseas Kerrang named them the "Best New Band of 2008!" Lead vocalist/guitarist Gabriel Garcia, bassist Zakk Sandler, drummer Steven Spence and guitarist Austin Diaz immediately took to the road and to date has rocked over 300 shows in over 16 countries with over 1 million fans.

Black Tide
is one of a young, new generation of rock bands who are equally at home in the metal, hard rock, and alternative worlds as evidenced by their inclusion on various package tours - Vans Warped Tour, Ozzfest, Mayhem Festival - and as support for artists such as Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Escape the Fate and more.

'Light From Above'
has sold over 100,000 albums and the band has had over 1 million views of their Youtube videos.

Black Tide may be the most explosive thing to happen to music since hard rock and heavy metal transformed the face of popular culture in the mid-‘80s.  They not only embrace the charisma, character and unwavering attitude of those who shredded before them, but they do so in a manner that would make the virtuosos that inspired them proud. The results are a renegade metallic assault that America hasn’t encountered since Metallica killed ‘em all in ’83. Black Tide are not only bringing music back from the dead, but they’re returning the power to metal. The meltdown is long overdue…
