What's Your Zodiac Sign? Find Your Soul Mate with Blackcraft Zodiac

Blackcraft Cult Inc. Announces Plans to Launch Astrology-Based Dating App

ORANGE, Calif., April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackcraft Cult Inc. ("Blackcraft Cult") (OTCBB: BLCK), a recently formed media company and lifestyle apparel brand, revealed today its plans to launch Blackcraft Zodiac, a mobile application designed to connect singles with compatible partners in their area based on their astrological signs. The app will soon be available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play, available to hundreds of millions of smartphone users.

Blackcraft Cult Inc.

Blackcraft Zodiac calls upon the universe to find your celestial lover at the touch of a finger. If the stars have aligned, her Virgo will be compatible with your Taurus – without you ever having to ask, "Hey baby, what's your sign?" Other popular dating and hook-up applications rely solely on GPS, location-based technology without any elements of compatibility or chemistry.

"Blackcraft Cult's mantra encourages young people to create their own futures and believe in themselves," Co-Founder Robert "Bobby" Schubenski said. "Finding your soul mate is an important aspect of anyone's future. Blackcraft Zodiac offers singles, astrologers and soothsayers alike the opportunity to connect, through what really matters – the cosmos – from the palm of their hand."

Since launching in July 2012, Blackcraft Cult has quickly grown from an in-demand heavy metal apparel brand to an emerging and innovative technology company with plans to launch a mobile messaging application called BCC Messenger on April 25, 2014. The new app will feature exclusive content, including interviews with featured musicians, hard-core expressions of freedom through Blackcraft Cult's shocking and one-of-a kind emojis, priority access to limited edition Blackcraft Cult products, as well as the always edgy thoughts, views and photos of the growing "Blackcraft Cult family."

"With a social media following of over 15 million strong, BCC Messenger is the perfect vehicle for our fans to connect and communicate, not only with us, but with each other. Who doesn't want to virtually flip the bird to their mate or significant other every now and again?" said Co-Founder James "Jim" Somers.

Capstone Financial Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CAPP), an Irvine, Calif.-based investment group, has made a strategic investment and purchased 9,732,503 common shares of Blackcraft Cult.

"Bobby and Jim are quite simply marketing geniuses who have transformed Blackcraft Cult into an explosive growth operation," said Darin Pastor, Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Financial Group, Inc. "We jumped at the opportunity to invest in one of the most innovative technology and media outfits we have ever come across."

Blackcraft Cult Inc. announced its plans for a 66.6-for-one forward stock split of its issued and outstanding common stock in March of this year and will soon begin trading under the ticker symbol "BLCK."
