Black Tide was formed in Miami, Florida in 2004 by vocalist and guitarist Gabriel Garcia and 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, friends of theirs who were both 14 and 15 years of age at the time, respectively. This completed the band\'s lineup. Originally known as Radio, the band\'s name was changed to Black Tide soon after its inception, to show that the members had \"grown up a bit\". The band started playing local shows, eventually gaining the attention of record labels due to the members\' young age and talent. In 2005, Black Tide was signed to Atlantic Records. The record 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, Black Tide was signed on to Interscope.
Black Tide recorded a single, \"Shockwave\", which gained rotation on MTV2\'s Headbangers Ball. The band started touring and gained a position on the second stage of Ozzfest, but were kicked off the tour because the stage was sponsored by Jägermeister and all of the members of Black Tide were under the legal drinking age. Although the band was no longer appearing on the second stage, Black Tide was able to be the opening act on the main stage in some areas, opening for Lordi, Static-X, Lamb of God, and Ozzy Osbourne. After Ozzfest, the band toured with Avenged Sevenfold and All That Remains.
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 album was critically praised, with Dan Epstein of Revolver Magazine saying \"Listening to the debut album from Miami\'s Black Tide is a little like stumbling across a cool late-80s metal record you\'d completely forgotten about. A very promising debut\" and Scott Alisoglu of Blabbermouth.net stating the album contains \"Big, sometimes pop-based, melodies meets crunchy, guitar-driven metal that falls somewhere between thrash/traditional metal and the dirtier end of \'80s glam/hair metal.\" Light From Above debuted at number 73 on the Billboard 200, with 11,400 copies sold in its first week of sales.
On March 27, 2008, the band performed on the late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live on the ABC television network in the United States and Citytv in Canada.
