Black Tide has uploaded performance footage from the band’s recent appearance at Comic Con 2011. You can check out live renditions of “That Fire” and “Fight ‘Til The Bitter End” below. The tracks are taken from the band's latest album "Post Mortem," which was the follow-up to 2008's "Light From Above."
Hurricane Irene is roaring up the east coast of the U.S. and has caused organizers of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival to reschedule a Sunday date in suburban Boston.
The show, slated for the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass., is right in the projected path of the massive storm, which is expected to slam into the Massachusetts coastline sometime Sunday afternoon - just as Avenged Sevenfold, Seether, Bullet for My Valentine, Black Tide and the rest of the bill would be on the venue's outdoor stages.
“Safety first…We don’t want any of our fans to get hurt,” said M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold. “We decided to move the show from Sunday to Tuesday so all of you crazy fucks can make it and stay safe.”
"We apologize for any inconvenience to the fans, but safety is our first concern. We want everyone to be able to enjoy a full afternoon and evening of rock at UPROAR,” said Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival co-producer John Oakes. “After the Category 3 storm blows through New England on Sunday, UPROAR promises to bring a Category 5 rock storm on Tuesday.”
The tour starts in Camden, N.J. Friday and hits Scranton, Penn. on Saturday before taking the storm hiatus until Tuesday's Boston show.
Black Tide recently stopped by Guitar Center to perform an unplugged version of "Let It Out," a brand new song from the band's upcoming sophomore album, "Post Mortem," hitting stores everywhere August 23rd, 2011 via DGC/Interscope Records.
Black Tide will hit the road later this summer in support of "Post Mortem" as part of the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival with Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Seether and more. Black Tide will perform on the Best Buy Music Gear Stage alongside Sevendust, Art Of Dying and Hell Or Highwater from August 26 to October 14.

American hard rock act Black Tide has announced that "Post Mortem" will be the title of the group's forthcoming new album. The band commented on the album and its choice of title by saying:
"August 23rd 2011 will be huge step in our lives. Not only as a band, but as people. This record means everything to us. We poured our heart and soul into this and have been waiting for it to come out like the rest of you. ‘Post Mortem‘ is the name of the record. It means 'after death.'
"The reason we love this title is because we feel that we are so lucky to be able to be doing this, and having an opportunity to put our music out there is honestly the closest thing to heaven we have on this earth. It’s a like a dream. We love all our fans and hope to see you all at the Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival this summer! This is the beginning of a long, crazy and yet beautiful ride."
The organisers of the touring Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar tour have confirmed which bands will be taking part in this year's edition of the trek. Headlining the run will be Orange County, California based Avenged Sevenfold, who will be joined by Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet For My Valentine and Escape The Fate. There will also be a second stage which will feature Sevendust as it's headlining act, along with Black Tide, Art Of Dying and The Black Cloud Collective.
"When we started hearing from our fans they wanted to see us back on Uproar this year, we thought, last year was a blast so let's do it again. The fans are crazy and the bands kick ass,” says Avenged Sevenfold's frontman M. Shadows. “We're spending the first half of summer playing some big European festivals so we're going to be ready to get back home and play America's top rock festival."
"We're thrilled to have Avenged Sevenfold back as headliners,” adds tour producers John Reese and John Oakes. “Their epic stage show helped elevate Uproar 2010 far beyond the standard outdoor festival. The fans wanted more, and we listened." More...
