Visionary media collective STARSET have carved out a unique path as part cinematic rock band, part conceptual storytellers, weaving an intricate narrative through multimedia and redefining the concept of a truly immersive entertainment experience. Led by enigmatic frontman and PhD candidate Dustin Bates, the band have made a mission to take fans on a journey through music, video, AR-integrated performances, a Marvel graphic novel, and online experiences, blurring the lines of science, fact, and fiction.
STARSET’s third album DIVISIONS is out now and provides the soundtrack to the next chapter of their overarching narrative — one of a dystopian future world divided by the technology that has taken over in a war for human consciousness — those obeying and implementing it, and those fighting against it.
The band has shared insight into the making and marketing of the new album, along with a video of the 3D printing of the “MANIFEST” symbol, over at Forbes. Learn more here.
STARSET also teamed up with Billboard to premiere “SOLSTICE,” which features the band’s logo ascending into space. Watch the video and read the exclusive interview with here.
