Australia’s Eurovision stars Voyager are going on a national album tour next year.
The prog-metal outfit will headline shows in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, and Adelaide in February (see full dates below).
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, August 23rd at 10am local time. The Live Nation pre-sale begins on Tuesday, August 22nd at 10am local time.
The tour is in support of Voyager’s recently released eighth album, Fearless in Love.
“After many years of writing, demoing, isolating, perfecting and recording, we are proud to present our 8th album in full, Fearless In Love,” the band wrote on social media at the time.
“We are so proud of this album. It comes at a transformational time in our lives, and the music reflects that feeling perfectly. We have so many people to thank throughout the last four or so years for what we now have.”
Fearless in Love contains the single “Ultraviolet”, a collaboration with Sean Harmanis from metalcore band Make Them Suffer.
“”Ultraviolet” is certainly one of the darkest songs on the album,” the band explained. “As the protagonist struggles to cope with the pressures of the modern world and its insane demands, the song has a message that we hope will resonate with many people, and we collaborated with director Matt Pitcher to tell this story in a cinematic way.”
Voyager’s Eurovision entry was a history-making moment, being the first time ever that an Australian band represented the country. “I’m really, really excited that SBS went out on the limb and shook things up and decided to send Voyager,” lead singer Daniel Estrin told Rolling Stone AU/NZ in April.
“I think this is the year for heavy music and rock music to really shine like it probably hasn’t really ever before at Eurovision. So I’m very, very excited from that perspective,” he added.
In the end, Voyager represented their country well at Eurovision. They won the second semi-final, eventually finishing in ninth place in the grand final.
