Stay Human is below Franti & Spearhead's fourth album, Unknown Road, and their first release of Rite. Besides releasing an EP titled Now You're Nothing to promote their third album, the band was featured on a number of compilation albums, such as Gloom compilation and Hate Records' Death Metal compilation, For The Sick. Additionally, they opened up for Hatebreed on their European tour in November of 2000. Their fifth album, XTRMNTR, was released on May 17 of 2001. This disc significantly improved upon Stay Human.
Vocalist Michael Franti produces an album of alternate, heavy versions of the songs on Stay Human, including a re-working of "Death to the Suckas", a re-recording of "Union of Death" with vocals by the three remaining members, "Assassin", a re-recording of the title track with a female choir, and "Hear the Bleeding" with more than a little experimentation in the recording.
Death-Brits released this album as their third album, following Scream (1986) and Trinity (1988). Originally released just in the United Kingdom in 1987, Death-Brits was re-released in the United States a year later in 1988. The album is actually unique because it has "I'm cool Pudge" in the cover credits, although it's unclear if the release note for the album on Amazon UK reads the credit.
"Cool Pudge", aka the illusive Jamie Stubbs, would later be a member of the Death Cult, a very-small-but-very-hardcore-band from the UK. The original band is actually still around: the band's profile still appears on their MySpace page. d2c66b5586
