Starset has premiered a new song “Telescope” online. This is the third song released from their debut album Transmissions which will be released on July 8th via Razor & Tie and is available for pre-order on iTunes.

Starset is a rock band from Columbus, Ohio formed by Dustin Bates (he was formerly the lead singer with the group Downplay that was signed to Epic). A singer, songwriter and accomplished musician, Bates also boasts some serious scientific credentials. A PhD candidate in electrical engineering from Ohio University, he has done research for the U.S. Air Force and taught at the International Space University. In 2013 Dustin formed Starset after being contacted by an organization called The Starset Society and its President, Dr. Aston Wise. Bates was asked if he was interested in forming a band to promote the organization’s message. At its core, the message is a warning that involves a scientific discovery that is currently being controlled and manipulated by an elite few.
