Black Tide to embark on US tour with Bullet For My Valentine

Black Tide will head out on the road this fall joining Bullet For My Valentine and Escape The Fate on their 31 date tour of North America. The tour kicks off September 16th in Wichita, KS at The Cotillon and also includes Drive A on the bill. See below for a complete list of tour dates.

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. The Florida based quartet is putting the finishing touches on their sophomore set which will be released in early 2011. The new album was recorded at Spin Studios in New York with producers GGGarth (Rage Against The Machine, Rise Against) and Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God).

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