Vessels has proven to be a watershed moment for Starset. Upon release in January 2017, it debuted at #11 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, while the first single “Monster” was the second most played song of the year at rock radio. Since then, the album has been streamed 100 million times. Additionally, the band’s slate of YouTube videos have amassed over a billion cumulative views.

It’s the unique vision and goals of founder, frontman, and aural architect Dustin Bates that have truly allowed Starset, who are part-cinematic rock band and part-conceptual storytelling unit, to flourish and to stand head and shoulders above the rest. Bates is not only an audio alchemist but also a PhD candidate in electrical engineering. He has conducted research for the U.S. Air Force and has also taught at the International Space University in France — he is actively dedicated to promoting science to a wider audience. The band was also the subject of its own Marvel graphic novel The Prox Transmissions.

Thanks to the music and the sci-fi concept, along with the videos, novels, websites, and “can’t miss” live shows, Starset are blurring the line between art and science, offering fans a fully immersive experience that is truly unlike any other.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
