It’s been a little while since I’ve heard about Black Tide, but I was happy to see the band is getting ready to release a new album, Post Mortem, schedule for release on Auguest 23rd. Recently uploaded, “That Fire”, is the first track to be released from upcoming album. You can watch the video below.
Well, the high schoolers have grown up a bit, and the band’s sound is more mature.
Black Tide was recognized by Metromix.com as one of “The 25 hottest artists under 25,” cracking a list that is comprised of such current superstars as Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. OK, so eww to Bieber and Swift, but considering the fame of those two, it isn’t entirely bad company. The site declares, “This Florida quartet just might be the future face of heavy metal.”
One thing I have to mention before you watch the video, Gabriel Garcia’s ears are a bit of a distraction. All I can say is…OUCH! Watch and you’ll see what I mean.
Black Tide is schedule to go on tour with as part of the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, which is scheduled to kickoff on August 26th.
