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 is about to release a brand new single called Nuclear Hollywood on March 23, 2018 and is still playing shows in support of their full length album Wolves of War from 2017.
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. The bands sound changed to a more heavier and aggressive style. 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.
