Australian prog outfit VOYAGER have announced new European tour dates for September 2019. The run includes appearances at the Space Rocks Festival in London (UK), the Euroblast Festival in Cologne (DE) and the Progpower festival in Baarlo (NL). A full list of confirmed dates can be found below.
Vocalist Daniel Estrin comments on the tour: “We’re coming back to give Europe a taste of what’s to come for our new album. Just a taste though. Two London performances in two nights? Challenge accepted. Returning to two of our favorite festivals? Accepted. And just how could we turn down performing alongside Anathema at the prestigious Indigo2 where the Metal Hammer Golden Gods have been held? Well, the answer is that we couldn’t – so we’ll be seeing you all very soon for a special run of intimate shows in the UK to prepare everyone for our new album. It’s going to be colorful.”

VOYAGER will be touring in support of their brand new single “Brightstar” which is streaming, in the form of a music video, here!
Vocalist Daniel Estrin comments: “‘Brightstar’ is about the power of rationality, of the importance of science as an art, of facts, of the demise of empirical evidence in favor of blind belief in idols who spit forth a torrent of nonsense and generally about not believing in something or someone because it’s shiny and bright and promises a warm blanket of comfort. It’s so refreshing to be playing in such wide open spaces and to use technology to create art. There was definitely something magical about the beauty of this blisteringly hot part of the country and I think this clip will capture that magic. We are proud to be from Perth and we want our fans to see what we see. We also want them to know that we almost burnt to a crisp on 40c heat to bring them this visual treat!”
VOYAGER are set to release a new full length album later this year, via Season of Mist.
“Australian pop sensibility with modern progressive heaviness – this is the cult force that is VOYAGER.
With 6 full-length albums under their belt and shows throughout North America, Europe and Asia with the likes of DEFTONES, OPETH, DEVIN TOWNSEND, CHILDREN OF BODOM, SOILWORK, NIGHTWISH, EPICA and ORPHANED LAND, the five-piece from Perth is now firmly entrenched in its international repute as “the band who doesn’t sound like anyone else”.
VOYAGER’S sensationally anthemic songs offer huge soundscapes, pop and prog sensibilities with catchy and thought-inducing instrumentals. With concerts described as “amazing chemistry blending pop with heavy, technical and progressive riffs”, VOYAGER are consistently a live force to be reckoned with.
