BLACK TIDE To Play OZZFEST's Main Stage Beginning This Friday

Although no official announcement has yet been made, Miami, Florida-based hard rock band BLACK TIDE (formerly RADIO) appears to have been granted a main-stage slot at this year's Ozzfest beginning on August 10 in Tinley Park, Illinois. As you may recall, BLACK TIDE was originally tapped to replace CIRCUS DIABLO on Ozzfest's second stage, but was forced to drop off the bill — without even playing a single note. The reason? The second stage is being sponsored by Jägermeister, and the group's youngest musician is only 14 years old, making BLACK TIDE too young to rock alongside HATEBREED, BEHEMOTH and NILE.

BLACK TIDE recently completed work on its debut album with producer Johnny K (DISTURBED, MACHINE HEAD, SOIL). The CD is scheduled for release in early 2008 via Interscope Records.
