On August 18, Kevin Conklin of the 93.7 KCLB Rocks! radio station (web site) conducted an interview with vocalist and lead guitarist Gabriel Garcia of Miami hard rockers BLACK TIDE. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
BLACK TIDE's sophomore album, "Post Mortem", was released on August 23 via DGC/Interscope Records. The CD was written and recorded in the summer of 2010, and is the follow-up to 2008's "Light From Above", which garnered instant critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, Revolver and more.
The band followed the release of "Light From Above" with an appearance on the inaugural Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, performed on the main stage of Download 2008 and capped it off by playing the entire 2009 Vans Warped Tour.
In April 2011 BLACK TIDE was added as support for the only two announced U.S. dates of IRON MAIDEN's "The Final Frontier" world tour, which took place in BLACK TIDE's home state of Florida.
BLACK TIDE has just hit the road as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. The trek will run through October 15, conquering North America with a massive active rock lineup which features veteran acts AVENGED SEVENFOLD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SEVENDUST and more.
