After collecting dares from fans on Twitter, Miami-based hard rock outfit, Black Tide, has posted the first “#DareBlackTide” video challenge to their official Dare website. Tune in today to see which Black Tide member was lucky enough to draw the first challenge during the band’s recent run on the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink UPRAOR Festival. Fans are encouraged to continue to tweet dares to #dareblacktide for a chance to see Black Tide attempt your challenge from the road.
Black Tide is currently back home for a bit after wrapping up nearly two months on UPROAR 2011, concluding with a rousing performance at the two day 48 Hours Festival in Las Vegas. The massive active rock tour featured genre heavyweights Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Seether, Escape the Fate and more. Fans can check out these pictures from the Chula Vista stop: http://gbcproductions-blacktiderockstarupr.buzznet.com/user/photos/.
Black Tide drummer, Steven Spence, has issued a statement via the band’s official website in the wake of the group’s summer/fall run on UPROAR saying:
“I think I can safely say that Uproar has been the best tour of our career so far,” wrote Spence. “Between the friendships we’ve made, the insane crowds we’ve performed in front of, and the ridiculous after parties we’ve hosted, I’d say that this tour is going to leave a long-lasting impression on our lives. The rest of this new touring cycle is going to have a lot to live up to.”
Black Tide will continue to tour throughout the remainder of 2011 in support of its sophomore release, Post Mortem (DGC/Interscope), with a handful of dates with Pennsylvania rock act, Halestorm, already confirmed to kick off late November.

NEW ALBUM “A MOMENT IN CHIROS” AVAILABLE 11-11-11 ON NIGHTMARE RECORDS
LANCE KING is world renowned in the underground as a melodic metal vocalist, singing on over 25 worldwide releases over the last 21 years. This fact is impressive in itself, but what is truly special about LANCE is his ability to morph his voice to fit any mood and intensity of a song, he’s proved this over the years by adding a very “special something” to every album he has been a part of.
Today Noisecreep is hosting an exclusive premiere of track 333 from “A Moment in Chiros”. The song “Manifest Destiny” can be heard HERE. Look for additional songs to be premiered in the coming weeks.
On the last day of June, 2011 LANCE decided to invite some of his musical friends to co-write songs with him as he ventured into his first solo album. An act of faith only knowing their work, never working with them before in creating music. In just two months, those involved had created an epic masterpiece, quite a feat indeed based on the quality of this release.
In under three months, ”A Moment In Chiros” was mixed and mastered and off to the presses, perhaps the fasted created music in history? This album was meant to be out by 11/11/11 and is destined to stand the test of time.
The album’s concept is based on the 11:11 time prompt phenomena happening to over 75 million people around the world, Lance is one of these people, and has dived in deep to find more about what it’s all about. This album is one man’s journey as a seeker of truth looking for answers to the world’s greatest mysteries.
Lance has chosen “Human Trafficking” (sex slavery), one of the fastest growing criminal activities worldwide as the charitable cause he would like to champion, profits from this album will go to efforts to abolish this slave trade worldwide through an organization called “NOT FOR SALE”!
Boasting great creativity and performances by these fine musicians:
Jacob Hansen (Beyond Twilight, Invocator & Anubis Gate), Kim Olesen (Anubis Gate), Michael Harris (Darkology, Thought Chamber), Tore St Moren (Jorn), Fred Colombo (Spheric Universe Experience), Markus Sigfridsson (Darkwater / Harmony), Kevin Codfert (Adagio), Michael Hansen & Shane Dhiman (Phonomik), Morten Gade Sørensen (Pyramaze, Wuthering Heights), Elyes Bouchoucha, Malek Ben Arbia, Anis Jouini
(Myrath) & Mistheria (Bruce Dickinson and MANY others).
Produced by: Kim Olesen (Anubis Gate) & Jacob Hansen, (Volbeat, Heathen, TYR, Amaranthe, Communic, Mercenary, Onslaught, Rob Rock, Blotted Science, Raunchy, Pretty Maids, Cryoshell)

After releasing audio snippets, behind the scenes photos and additional online teasers, TESSERACT has finally revealed the long awaited new music video for the track “Eden”. Though “Eden” was originally on the band’s debut album One , this rendition is a newly re-recorded version with vocalist Elliot Coleman. Directed by Ganesh Rao (EMPYREAN), the video flows perfectly with the calming yet complex progressive metal arrangement.
