BlackStar Republic is a band located out of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Combining modern day metal with hard rock from across different genres to create a one of a kind sound. Songs that capture the listener and breaks the mold of being easily labeled and put in a box. The band purposely combines each members influences and creates something new and exciting but still comfortable to listeners who like rock to heavy metal styles. Currently the band has released a new music video for their latest single Nuclear Hollywood! The band is working in the studio on the follow up to the 2017 album Wolves of War.
Formed in early 2014 by Biggs and Mykol the band started quickly playing shows across the DFW area. In March of 2015, the band released a self-titled EP. The song Electrified and Sick Smile turned into fan favorites, and were even played on local radio giant 97.1 KEGL. In August of 2015 Joshua "Gore" Puerta joined the band on guitar. In March of 2016 Petey "Deathgroove" Libby joined the band on the drums. Petey had the style and talent the band had been looking for. Gore left the band in early 2018 and the band is currently looking for a second member but still continue to play shows as a trio.
