STARSET Break 1 Billion On YouTube & Set To Release Original Marvel Comic In September!






STARSET Reach 1 Billion Views On YouTube & Set To Release Original Marvel 'The PROX Transmissions' Comic In September! Plus 2 UK Shows With Breaking Benjamin This Month!



Starset recently passed the 1 billion milestone total views on YouTube with their official videos and User Generated Content (UGC) videos combined. The band’s cinematic sound and rabid fan-base have driven huge numbers at the video streaming service with fans uploading an unprecedented amount of their own videos using the band’s music, giving the band led by singer Dustin Bates an unparalleled digital foothold. Starset’s stronghold at radio has added to this ascension with the band’s first single from new album Vessels, “Monster”, currently the number 2 most played song of the year at mainstream rock (US).


Check out the video for the hit single "Monster" below:





Starset tapped into powerful YouTube communities including anime and gaming which are much larger than that of music on the platform. Many fan-uploaded Starset videos have hit multi-million views and YouTube data shows Starset videos gaining nearly two million new views per day. With only two albums released to date, Starset has exceeded the total view counts of most other contemporary rock bands and have views in the same league as the Foo Fighters, Muse and Bring Me the Horizon.


Last year Billboard reported on the band’s streaming phenomenon, “Starset has had success with their own uploads to the platform: the band's two YouTube accounts, which host official music and lyric videos, cryptic Starset Society-related teasers and audio-only streams . . . take into account fan-uploaded videos and the number of views explodes . . . six times larger and global.”


Setting the band apart from their contemporaries is the unique vision and goal of founder and front man Dustin Bates, who is also a PhD candidate in electrical engineering and has done research for the U.S. Air Force and taught at the International Space University in France. Inspired by the likes of Nikola Tesla and Carl Sagan, Starset’s albums, along with videos, websites, novels and one-of-a-kind live performances, were created as part of the over-arching concept, The Starset Society. Where science and fiction collide, The Starset Society is dedicated to publicising emerging, near-future technologies and investigating their inevitable social, economic, political, and philosophical impact on society. Bates and crews’ dedication to promoting science to a wider audience is also evidenced in the band’s unique live concerts and fully immersive planetariums shows.


The Marvel Comics unique collaboration with Bates and Marvel fan-favorite writer, Peter David (Ben Reilly: Scarlett Spider, Spider-Verse) for an all-new original 88-page graphic novel, “The PROX Transmissions” will be released on September 27th.


Starset is Front-man Dustin Bates, bassist Ron DeChant, guitarist Brock Richards and drummer Adam Gilbert.
