New York, NY (April 24, 2018) – Visionary cinematic rock band STARSET have released new single ‘Ricochet’ alongside new video and back with “elegant” acoustic version.
Ricochet (Acoustic Version):
The band recently announced signing to Fearless Records as they continue to tour in support of their latest album Vessels , which debuted at #11 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart last year.
With over 1.3 Billion views on YouTube, STARSET has quickly become one of the most successful breakout bands since their 2015 debut, Transmissions.
The band’s frontman Dustin Bates leads the band’s musical narrative, which is rooted in science and technology and its potential effects on our society now and in the future. Bates, who has a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Ohio University, is a PhD candidate in electrical engineering and, has done research for the U.S. Air Force as well as teaching at the International Space University in France. His dedication to promoting science to a wider audience is evidenced in the band’s cinematic live show, which includes a recently unveiled augmented / mixed reality app as well as a number of audio/visual devices designed by Bates himself. PLSN Magazine recently featured the band’s live show technology declaring, “in relating its magnum opus, Starset has constructed a brave new world, which blurs the lines between science fiction and science fact, and orbits somewhere between David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs and Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.” Last year Bates and the band also collaborated with Marvel Comics to release a STARSET themed graphic comic book.
STARSET is made up of vocalist Dustin Bates, bassist Ron DeChant, guitarist Brock Richards , and drummer Adam Gilbert.
The band will be touring the US next month with Shinedown & Five Finger Death Punch.
