Interviews: Align The Tide

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metal band Align The Tide from Malta. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?   

Danny & Kyle: We were just hanging out by the pool having a drink discussing some band names and all of a sudden the name “Align the Tide” came up and we just liked it, there’s no meaning behind the name it just sounds awesome.   

2. Why did you want to play this genre?       

All the band – We basically grew up listening to mostly Rock & Metal and we were influenced at a young age.    

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?       

Danny: Kyle & I met around 10 years ago and worked musically together ever since, later on in around 2011 we had formed a metal band and Nikki was with us at the time but we had parted ways in around 2014, Kyle & I kept on working together to this day. In the early stages of Align the Tide which was late 2015, Gabriel a.k.a Chippy joined the band. After three years of working together, playing shows locally in Malta and abroad including USA we parted ways with our rhythm guitarist Alston, which made me immediately contact Nikki to join the band once again to make the band move on further.
