Violence Breaks Out As BLACK TIDE Performs At JAMES FREY's Book-Release Party

Miami metal band BLACK TIDE played a free show last Thursday (May 15) at the Whisky A-Go Go in Hollywood, California to celebrate the release of James Frey's new book, "Bright Shiny Morning". There were several scuffles with security during BLACK TIDE's set and even more after a reading from James' book. According to the New York Post's "Page Six", "literary types were horrified as the brawl spilled out to the sidewalk, where it took 20 cops to quell the violence. Three men were arrested."

Yahoo! Music recently uploaded BLACK TIDE's exclusive performance of "Shockwave". Watch the footage below.

BLACK TIDE sold 11,400 copies of its debut album, "Light from Above", in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"Light from Above" was released on March 18 via Interscope Records. The CD was recorded with producer Johnny K, who has previously worked with DISTURBED, MACHINE HEAD and SOIL, among others.
