STARSET’S debut album, Transmissions, and accompanying graphic novel, The Prox Transmissions, established the fictional back story of planet Prox, a future haven from a dying earth. The album has sold over 250,000 albums. Since then STARSET has dedicated themselves to understanding how various technologies might affect our lives politically, socially, and economically.
Their new sophomore album, Vessels, single-mindedly tries to push the boundaries further. Vessels splits its narrative into an interconnected inter-zone of four separate dangerous visions. From a return to Prox to an admonishment of the dangers of genetic engineering to a near future where advances in artificial intelligence defy convenient notions of love, life and death, Bates has engineered an aural anthology that will challenge the STARSET faithful while delivering on the first album’s powerful promise. 2017 will also see MARVEL COMICS release a graphic novel based on THE STARSET SOCIETY continuing the journey of Vessels.
