Miami-based metallers BLACK TIDE have announced their upcoming European tour schedule. The band will play throughout Europe in the month of June, appearing at Germany's Rock Am Ring, France's Hellfest, Italy's Gods of Metal, and the UK's Download festivals.
BLACK TIDE bassist Zakk Sandler comments: "We are totally stoked to be heading back to Europe in June for the summer festivals. We can't even believe that we are on the bill with such amazing bands all over the continent. From JUDAS PRIEST to IRON MAIDEN and AVENGED SEVENFOLD, we are just in complete awe. We're looking forward to seeing another part of the world and seeing fans in Italy, Spain, Germany, and a ton of other places. This is gonna be the best summer ever!"
