Starset Premiere Video Trailer for New Album, Transmissions
Starset is a rock band from Columbus, Ohio, formed by Dustin Bates, who, as well as being a singer, songwriter, and accomplished musician, also boasts some serious scientific credentials. A PhD candidate in electrical engineering from Ohio University, he has done research for the U.S. Air Force and taught at the International Space University. In 2013, Dustin formed Starset, according to him, after being contacted by an organization called The Starset Society and its President, Dr. Aston Wise. Bates was asked if he was interested in forming a band to promote the organization’s message. At its core, the message is a warning that involves a scientific discovery that is currently being controlled and manipulated by an elite few.
Starset’s debut studio album, Transmissions, will be released on July 8 via Razor & Tie. In anticipation, the band has teamed with Revolver to premiere a new trailer for the album. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.
Transmissions is now available for preorder on iTunes. When fans preorder the album, they will receive instant grat tracks of the songs “Carnivore” and “My Demons”–the video for the latter cut can be viewed below. An additional song will be also be available with the iTunes preorder in coming weeks.
