      Starset

      with Palasades, Hyde, A Brilliant Lie
      Transmission received. Starsets new sonic codex, Vesssels, builds upon a schema where futurism has become fact and imagination is opportunity. The sophomore release from Starsets aural architect, Dustin Bates, is a data-stream-rendered-in-sound where Bates plaintive howl becomes the deus-ex-machina in an age of information overload - the wail of a ghost in an increasingly complex yet ultimately human machine.Starsets 2014 Razor & Tie debut, Transmissions introduced not only Starset but also The Starset Society, a shadowy, anonymous-like group of real-world rooted scientists admonishing the dangers of technology and dystopia gone amuck. Now, just a mere two years later, we are seeing Bates scientific speculation become science fact. While fully fleshed-out in his recently selfpublishednovel, The Prox Transmissions, Bates lyrical themes of exo-planet discovery andcolonization, coupled with the impact of rapid advances in technology including 3-D printing, are proving Starset a truly visionary multi-media collective.While Transmissions was indeed a landmark album, selling in excess of a quarter million combined albums, streams and downloads, and propelled by singles including the unforgettable My Demons (which spent an unprecedented 43 weeks scaling rock charts), Bates approached Vessels with a singular intent on pushing boundaries.Once again produced by Rob Graves (Halestorm, Red) and mixed by Ben Grosse (Breaking Benjamin, Filter) the results speak for themselves. From atmospheric opener, Back To The Earth to the driving hooks of the albums first single, Monster to the catchy, nearly progressive moments of Frequency, Bates has succeeded in escaping the gravity of formula radio rock. Instead, he has reimagined his genre-defying vision as an arena where Hans Zimmer interfaces with Radiohead and Trent Reznor.Where Transmissions over-arching concept focused on a message from the planet Prox a future haven from a dying Earth, Vessels splits its narrative into an interconnected interzone of four separate dangerous visions. From a return to Prox to an admonishment of the dangers of genetic engineering to a near future where advances in artificial intelligence defy convenient notions of love, life and death, Bates (who is a PhD candidate in electrical engineering and has doneresearch for the US Air Force) has engineered an aural anthology that will challenge the Starset faithful while delivering on the first albums powerful promise.In addition to shattering convention on record, Starsets live demonstrations are slaked on that same alloy of ambition, technology and raw emotion. With over 300 shows logged to date, Bates and his helmeted-and-pressure-suited crew (bassist Ron DeChant, guitarist Brock Richards and drummer Adam Gilbert) have distinguished themselves touring with the likes of BreakingBenjamin and In This Moment, while igniting audiences on major US festivals including Rock On The Range. However, it was four planetarium performances in 2015 including Boulder, Colorados Fiske Planetarium and Long Island, New Yorks Vanderbilt Museum Planetarium that brought Starsets live promise into laser-enhanced, telescopic focus.What began as a near-planetary collision of sound, vision and iconoclastic ideologies inspired by the likes of Nikola Tesla and Ray Kurzweil (AKA: The Father of Singularity) has taken a bold step forward with Vessels. Starsets message has been received and downloaded. Transmissioncomplete.
