Australian pop/prog sensation VOYAGER are now releasing the next brand new track of their upcoming opus ‘Colours in the Sun’, which will be released on November 1 via Season of Mist! In celebration, VOYAGER launch a cityscape guitar walk-through with Simone and Scott for the single “Water Over the Bridge”.
Guitarist Simone comments on the video: “We wanted to approach the play through for Water Over the Bridge a little differently, and what better way than to have a stroll around our wonderful city of Perth playing riffs with faces full of gurn haha. We wanted this to be a bit more of an interactive and interesting playthrough rather than us just sitting in the studio, and so people can see the chemistry between Scott and I when we perform together. There’s also a few cool cameos from the other band members in the video too, which make it fun!”

VOYAGER have previously revealed the artwork and track-list of ‘Colours in the Sun’, which can both be viewed below.
Vocalist Danny Estrin comments on the album: “Colours in the Sun is the most transcendent, layered, and effervescent album we have written and recorded. It’s poppy, but still holds weight with crunchy, powerful riffs. It’s a true reflection of Voyager – five individuals from different roots coming together and creating a unique sound under the Australian sun.”

Destined for longevity and worldwide success, Perth based quintet VOYAGER recently signed their first worldwide recording contract with Season of Mist following the release of their 6th opus Ghost Mile. Ghost Mile saw dedicated fans contribute to the band’s Pledge Music campaign in 2017, reaching the band’s goal in just a little over a week.
If there is one word to describe VOYAGER’s most current form, it is colourful. After years of evolution and amassing worldwide influences that mold the Perth quintet’s unique sound, VOYAGER have truly come into their own in recent years, crafting a path of success both on and off stage. The genre-transfiguring act blend new-romantic and 80’s infused vocals, keytar solos, technical yet melodic fretwork, groovy bass and bombastic drumming efforts. All of which make VOYAGER the pop/prog/power/rock/metal force that they are renowned as today.
Having toured the world a few times over and having shared the stage with names such as DEFTONES, LEPROUS, NIGHTWISH, COHEED and CAMBRIA, as well as headlining a number of festivals including opening the main stage at Download Festival Australia 2019, Voyager are back with a taste of what’s to come. The band’s versatile sound sees them complement a multiplicity of line-ups, and attract the love and attention of a wide demographic of fans!
In a bid to resonate with audiences all around the world, frontman Danny Estrin explains that “Colours in the Sun” is a musical depiction of a personal journey to an adopted country. “We are the colours in the sun” says Voyager, who are celebrating Australia’s vast and varied beauty with their new album.
