Starset, Ohio’s sensational electronic rock and hard rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to Saint Andrews Hall!
The band was formed in Columbus in 2013 by vocalist Dustin Bates. Taking the role of the band's lead singer, songwriter, and keyboardist, he recruited Ron DeChant (bass guitar, keyboard, and backing vocals), Brock Richards (guitar and backing vocals), and Adam Gilbert (drums) to complete the line up. He also wrote the fictional backstory for the band and it’s used as the thematic basis for their music and multimedia. When the band’s on tour, the line up also includes Nneka Lyn on the cello. Their musical style falls under the genres of electronic rock, hard rock, and according to Dustin, it’s a blend of “symphonics with electronics and riff driven, baritone guitar hard rock.” They cite bands and artists such as Hans Zimmer, Nine Inch Nails, Sigur Ros, 30 Seconds to Mars, Deftones, Angels and Airwaves, Red, Skillet and Breaking Benjamin as their main influences. They released their debut single (My Demons) in 2013 and it hit #5 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart. Their debut studio album (Transmissions) came out in in 2014 and peaked at t #5 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart and #49 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Their latest studio album (Vessels) comes out in January 2017.
