New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Razor & Tie) Starset's debut album Transmissions debuts at #49 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart with more than 5,300 units sold. This marks one of the highest chart debuts from a new rock band this year. The album also enters on a number of other Billboard charts including #5 Hard Music, #15 at Rock, and #24 at Digital. The band's first single, "My Demons" is now in the Top 10 at Rock Radio and has been on the chart for 32 weeks, the longest chart run of the year at the format. Starset will be touring the U.S. this fall, details forthcoming.

Razor & Tie Co-Owner's Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam comment, "Starset is one of the most exciting and talented bands we've seen in years and Dustin Bates is a rock star with a vision. We couldn't be more excited about them."

Another top Razor & Tie chart debut this week is from the band Chelsea Grin, who debuts at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart selling over 10,100.

Starset is a rock band from Columbus, Ohio formed and led by Dustin Bates. 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. Transmissions was produced by Rob Graves (All That Remains, Red).
