Woozyfly.com's metal maniac Buckshot caught up with the members of Miami's BLACK TIDE for a candid conversation while the band was in New York City. As Gabriel, Zakk, Alex and Steven tried their hand at taking on Buckshot at a beer-chugging contest, the guys talked about what it was like being a part of this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, future touring plans, preparation for their sophomore release, stealing music from Best Buy, their lack of excitement about the new METALLICA album and how they are going to download it off Limewire. Watch the interview below.
BLACK TIDE 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.
"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.
