Australian pop sensibility with modern progressive heaviness – the cult force that is VOYAGER.
With 5 full-length albums under their belt and shows throughout North America, Europe and Asia with the likes of Deftones, Opeth, Devin Townsend, Leprous, Children Of Bodom, Soilwork, Nightwish, Epica and Orphaned Land, the five-piece from Perth, Western Australia is now firmly entrenched in its international repute as “the band who doesn’t sound like anyone else”.
With a fiery red keytar, a feisty female guitarist and concerts described as “amazing chemistry blending pop with heavy, technical and progressive riffs”, Voyager are consistently a live force to be reckoned with. Deftones’ Chino Moreno recently likened singer Danny Estrin’s vocals to Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon.
In June 2014, Voyager released their fifth opus; the internationally critically acclaimed ‘V’. Their new album received incredible reviews from media outlets such as Metal Hammer, Prog Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine and Revolver Magazine. In addition, ‘V’ entered the top 20 on the CMJ US Loud Rock Charts and led Voyager to receiving a nomination for the ‘Breakthrough Artist’ award at the 2014 Prog Magazine Music Awards and an invitation to appear at Bigsound 2014.
Voyager has performed at major festivals such as ProgPower USA and Hammersonic Festival (Indonesia) and completed a headline tour of the UK in October 2014, including an appearance at Euroblast Festival in Germany and the prestigious ProgPower Europe Festival in The Netherlands.
Having ended 2016 with a bang touring Australia with DEFTONES and KARNIVOOL, receiving a WAM award for ‘Best Heavy Act’, and already being invited to once again play Euroblast and headline Progpower EU in 2017, it’s looking to be their biggest year yet with the upcoming release of album 6.
