Black Tide’s sophomore album, ‘Post Mortem,’ is the album Zakk Sandler says the band always wanted to make. Moreover, unlike some bands that are chained to a label’s idea of what’s marketable, Sandler says Black Tide had complete freedom over the creative process on the album, and that’s why it turned out so close to their vision.
For some, Black Tide have changed drastically in between the release of their 2008 debut 'Light From Above' and the recently issued 'Post Mortem.' The band burst onto the scene with raucous, glammy influences like Motley Crue stuffed into the back pocket of their skintight jeans. But they weren't throwbacky; they breathed new life into that time-honored sound. However, the new album isn't quite so, well, influenced!
The metal Floridians of Black Tide have been rocking the stage at this year’s Uproar Tour while promoting their second album, ‘Post Mortem.’ Bassist Zakk Sandler talked about the new record, touring and not compromising when it comes to his passion for music in a recent interview with MetalTitans.com.

Miami's own Black Tide make their triumphant return with ‘Post Mortem,’ the follow-up to their 2008 debut release, ‘Light From Above.’ One might say that if you release your major-label debut as teenagers that there’s nowhere to go but up, but Black Tide's growth on this album transcends the natural evolution of their coming of age.
