Australian electro prog sensation VOYAGER has announced an online concert! The show, which was filmed in the band’s hometown of Perth (AUS), will be streaming via the Veeps Platform on October 11, 2020 at 7:00 A.M. EDT and will exist until November 1. The set can be viewed at THIS LOCATION. Tickets are available now!
The show, dubbed “Voyager Biosecurity (Human Biosecurity Emergency) (Human Coronavirus with Pandemic Potential) (Overseas Travel Ban Emergency Requirements)Determination (Cth) Online Show 2020,” has been named after the legislation that was passed in Australia that is preventing the band from touring. It will take place at the “Department of Prog, Synths and Riffs.”
The absence of live shows in 2020 has affected music fans all around the world. VOYAGER is here to inject some of the live music spirit back into your lives.
Vocalist Danny Estrin’s official announcement and comment can be seen HERE.
Moreover, Guitarist Scott Kay teaches fans how to play a riff from the band’s song “Colours” in the latest installment of Guitar World’s “Sick Riffs” series! In addition to the play-through, Kay also includes the tablature. Watch and learn at THIS LOCATION.
The song is taken from the band’s 2019 release, ‘Colours in the Sun,’ which can be downloaded and streamed HERE.
‘Colours in the Sun’ was recently the winner of The Independent Music Award in the Rock/Hard Rock Album category. The record was released in November of 2019 and landed a coveted #1 placement on the Australian Independent Albums chart! ‘Colours in the Sun’ also debuted at #7 on Independent Label Albums as well as #27 on Official iTunes Australia.
Moreover, the band has reissued 2017’s ‘Ghost Mile’ as a digipak version, which contains three bonus tracks which were recorded during the VOYAGER show at ProgPower in 2017. It can be ordered HERE.
Earlier this year, VOYAGER‘s music video for “Runaway” was exclusively premiered via ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides!’ Following an application via the Song Portal, the band finally received recognition for submitting a track and were paid tribute on the live television broadcast that aired on Saturday, February 8 on the Gold Coast. The video is now available worldwide and can be seen at THIS LOCATION.
