We have been talking about the Florida quartet, Black Tide, for quite awhile now. The reasons for our constant chattering are endless. We just fell hard for this group and their sophomore album, “Post Mortem”, hasn’t even dropped yet. The released singles, “Bury Me”, “Honest Eyes”, “Walking Dead Man”, “That Fire” and “Let It Out”, individually bring distinct musical elements, but collectively express the band’s confidence in their music. Their musical security is conveyed to the listener and reciprocated with the band gaining the listener’s trust. That’s a pretty solid trade, diverse tunes for fan loyalty. We are glad to have this relationship with Black Tide.
On August 23rd, you can strengthen this bond, when “Post Mortem” officially drops via Interscope Records. In the meantime, you can keep revisiting our interview with drummer, Steven Spence. His words will allow you to get a full understanding of the band’s intentions for “Post Mortem”, before it drops.
We saved the best news for last. Black Tide has a few words for you, Shockya readers. Check out the video message from Steven Spence and the rest of the band, vocalist and lead guitarist, Gabriel Garcia, bassist, Zakk Sandler and guitarist, Austin Diaz.
