ICYMI: We Now Have Two Epic New Singles from the Upcoming STARSET Album, HORIZONS.

STARSET, the cinematic rock band known for their expansive worldbuilding, intricate spacesuits and immersive concert experiences, is set to release their fourth studio album, HORIZONS, on October 22 via Fearless Records.

Friday, September 24th, marked the release of their 3rd single from the album, “LEAVING THIS WORLD BEHIND”. It was most recently preceded by “THE BREACH”, which was released on September 10th.

Check out both September releases below on Youtube.


A continued voyage through a captivating narrative, HORIZONS delivers a cinematic soundscape that accompanies the listener through pain, love, descent, and triumph. The world has been consumed by synthetic methods of escaping reality. It is with this technology that we are able to explore life through other users experiences — finally, the ability to be someone else. STARSET’s epic hard rock styling does not disappoint, as we travel a newfound digital frontier along with them.



The first single from the album, “INFECTED”, was released on April 26th in collaboration with Arknights. Check it out here.


Formed in 2013 by Columbus, Ohio singer-songwriter & frontman, Dustin Bates, STARSET’s first album Transmissions debuted at number 49 on the Billboard 200 chart, one of the highest-charting debuts for a rock band in 2014. The group’s intricately-crafted sci-fi backstory piqued the interest of fans, and they subsequently released the concept album Vessels in 2017, followed by DIVISIONS in 2019. Their song “Monster” peaked at number 2 on the Billboard U.S. Mainstream Rock chart in May 2017, and by 2020, the band had tallied over two billion streams worldwide. STARSET’s latest single is “INFECTED.” STARSET have received critical acclaim from Billboard, Forbes, Loudwire, Nerdist, and beyond over the course of their career. The band’s fourth album HORIZONS arrives in Fall 2021.
