Australia’s premiere progressive metal act Voyager are now releasing a new performance video for the track “Severomance'”! The video is taken from the recent “Department of Riffs and Synths” online performance.
The band recently performed the online show, inspired by the legislation that was passed in Australia that prevented them from touring their latest album, “Colours in the Sun”. The show was initially taken down on November 1st, but due to popular demand the show has been put back online for fans who wished to watch again, and for those who missed out.
The band comment:
“We really enjoyed experiencing a new kind of live experience, and it was beautiful seeing fans join us all around the world. We don’t know what the future holds, but right now we’re going to make the best of it and try to unite us and our fans in an alternative way. Right now it’s looking positive for our Australian tour in February and we’re taking this show for a test run on December 12th at Milk Bar in Perth”.
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.
