Before heading out on tour with AVENGED SEVENFOLD later this month, Miami, Florida-based hard rock band BLACK TIDE (formerly RADIO) will be the featured performers at the second annual Monster Energy Drinks/Coffin Case Halloween bash on October 27 at NRG Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. The party will also include a runway show from the Coffin Girls and a burlesque performance from Masuimi Max.BLACK TIDE has set "Light from Above" as the title of its debut album, due in February 2008 via Interscope Records. The CD was recorded with producer Johnny K (DISTURBED, MACHINE HEAD, SOIL) and will include the track "Shockwave", which can be heard in streaming audio at this location. BLACK TIDE burst onto the metal scene with a month-long stint opening up the main stage of Ozzfest. According to a press release, the band "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…" BLACK TIDE is: Gabriel Garcia (age 14) – Vocals/Guitar
