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.
Australia has been allowed to compete for a place in this year’s Eurovision. Australian progressive rockers VOYAGER have the “keytar, they have the female guitarist, they have the vocalist with the cool haircut AND they have the talent” and there is a campaign to get them into the competition.
