Australian pop/prog sensation VOYAGER are now announcing the re-issue of their highly praised album ‘Ghost Mile’ (2017), which will be released on July 10th via Season of Mist. The album will be pressed on vinyl for the very first time. Pre-orders are now live HERE.
The band comment on the release: “What a Wonderful Day. Whilst we’re all feeling a bit Disconnected, why don’t we take a walk down To The Riverside and take in the Fragile Serene? This will prepare ourselves for the limited edition vinyl pressing of Ghost Mile, which goes on sale this Wednesday! This Gentle Earth is recovering from a huge ordeal, and we want to extend a Lifeline during this time. Misery is Only Company, and soon the darkness will give way to Ascension playing through your speakers on July 10th. So As the City Takes the Night on May 27th, head to our Bandcamp or to Season of Mist’s online store to claim your copy.“
The digipak version of ‘Ghost Mile’ will contain three bonus tracks which were recorded during the VOYAGER show at ProgPower in 2017. One of the bonus tracks is now available via the band’s YouTube channel HERE. The link may be freely spread throughout your channels.
VOYAGER previously announced the rescheduled dates for their Australian headline tour, which will now happen in February 2021. The full list of newly confirmed dates can be found below.
Vocalist Danny comments on the tour: “You know what helps build something more than waiting? Waiting some more! So just as we were super excited to tour “Colours in the Sun” around Australia in May 2020, we are going to be at least twice as excited to bring it to you in 2021. We are going to be raring to burn off those isolation pounds on stage and bring you a smorgasbord of pent up Voyagerisms; more than ever, live music will have a whole new meaning and I can’t wait to see everyone’s smiles, some new 80s hairdos and some inflatable keytars – Runaway until 2021 Australia, see you soon(ish).”

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.
