Additional notes
Black Tide was formed in 2004 by guitarist Gabriel Garcia and his older brother Raul Garcia. Raul recruited second guitarist Alex Nuñez. At the time, Garcia was 10 years old and Nuñez was 13 years old. Garcia and Nuñez recruited bassist Zachary Sandler and drummer Steven Spence, after Raul's departure from the group. This completed the band's lineup. Originally known as Radio, the band's name was changed to Black Tide by Interscope Records soon after its inception. In late 2007, Black Tide entered the studio in Chicago, Illinois with producer Johnny K. The band recorded 12 new tracks which included a cover of Metallica's first written song, "Hit the Lights", which originally appeared on Kill 'Em All. The resulting album, Light From Above, was released on March 18, 2008.

The band also covered Iron Maiden's Prowler, which was recorded for Kerrang's Maiden Heaven.

Nuñez left Black Tide after a disagreement on the direction the band should go.

The band's sound has recently changed to a more mainstream rock/metalcore style.
