Rock My Monkey TV recently conducted an interview with drummer Steven Spence of the Miami hard rock quartet BLACK TIDE. You can now watch the chat below.
“Post Mortem”, the sophomore album from BLACK TIDE, sold 5,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was made available on August 23 via DGC/Interscope Records.
“Post Mortem” was written and recorded in the summer of 2010, and is the follow-up to 2008’s “Light From Above”, which garnered instant critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, Revolver and more.
The band followed the release of “Light From Above” with an appearance on the inaugural Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, performed on the main stage of Download 2008 and capped it off by playing the entire 2009 Vans Warped Tour.
In April 2011 BLACK TIDE was added as support for the only two announced U.S. dates of IRON MAIDEN‘s “The Final Frontier” world tour, which took place in BLACK TIDE‘s home state of Florida.
BLACK TIDE took part in this summer’s edition of Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival alongside AVENGED SEVENFOLD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SEVENDUST and more.
