The band recently inked a deal with Zombie Shark Records, founded by Noah “Shark” Robertson; drummer for bands such as Jeffrey Nothing (Ex-Mushroomhead), Motograter, and The Browning. Blackstar Republic released the following statement in regards to the signing, “We are very excited to have joined forces with Zombie Shark Records and Noah “Shark” Robertson for the release of our new album ‘Humanatti’. This is an album we worked on for a while and took some risks in doing things we haven’t done before. We feel we kept the intensity of our past work but also added more melodic moments and harmonies. It crosses in and out of some metal genres. We have never wanted to be put in a certain genre box. We can’t wait to get these songs to the masses!”
