Miami, Florida-based hard rock band BLACK TIDE has 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.
After months of anticipation, BLACK TIDE has finally unveiled the video for its blazing single “Shockwave”. The Travis Kopach-directed (BUCKCHERRY, PANIC! AT THE DISCO) directed clip finds the group turning a non-descript suburban home into a frenzy of moshing fans and skateboarders pulling tricks on a half-pipe! The motocross bad boys of the Metal Mulisha also make an appearance making this video a throwback to the glory days of ’80s metal!

“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.
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…”
