Black Tide is an American heavy metal band from Miami, Florida. Formed in 2004, the band is currently signed to Interscope Records. The band is currently composed of Gabriel Garcia (vocals and lead guitar), Austin Diaz (rhythm guitar and vocals), Zachary Sandler (bass and vocals), and Steven Spence (drums, percussion). They released their debut album, Light from Above, on March 18, 2008, through Interscope Records. The band's self-titled second studio album will be released in February 2011.

Black Tide was founded in Miami, Florida in 2004 under the name "Radio" by guitarist Gabriel Garcia and his older brother Raul Garcia. Raul recruited second guitarist Alex Nuñez, then later bassist Zachary Sandler. At the time, Gabriel Garcia was 11 years old and Nuñez was just 13 years old.[1] Garcia, Nuñez, and Sandler recruited drummer Steven Spence, after Raul's departure from the group.[1] This completed the band's lineup. The band started playing local shows, eventually gaining the attention of record labels due to the members' young age and talent. Winder Marin, the former drummer was dropped and a replacement was brought in to keep the young image of the band. In 2005, Black Tide signed a demo deal with Atlantic Records [1] as Radio. The deal lasted for only a year, before the band was spotted by a record executive for EMI, who notified Interscope Records of the band. By mid 2007, now named Black Tide, they were signed to Interscope.[1] They're influenced by classic metal acts such as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, AC/DC and Pantera.
