Official press release: What an incredible year 2011 has been for Perth Prog Metal masters VOYAGER. Having nationally supported the huge Alestorm ‘Back through Time’ Australian tour in May, completed to their first USA trip to take part in the prestigious Prog Power Festival USA in September, and recently been selected as the nationwide support for Finnish Metal act Children of Bodom on their Australian tour in November, VOYAGER are set to cap off their most successful year to date with the release of their highly anticipated fourth full length album ‘The Meaning of I’:
A dark, heavy introspective, at times electronic, yet occasionally uplifting journey into the mind in search of meaning. ‘The Meaning Of I’ is a culmination of the Voyager sound: polished yet organic, heavy yet melodic, dark yet playful.
‘The Meaning Of I’ comes a stunning digipak complete with 12 page booklet and is to be released nationally through Riot! Entertainment and available in stores from October 28th. VOYAGER’s adventurous and unique sound merges Amorphis’ thirst for melody, Soilwork’s heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-Ha’s Morton Harket and features guest appearances from Daniel Tompkins (Tesseract), DC Cooper (Royal Hunt) plus a special tribute to the late Peter Steele.
The Official launch show for VOYAGER’s new album ‘The Meaning Of I’ has been set for October the 15th @ the Amplifier Bar, Perth with Guests Chaos Divine, Hemina and Meridian
