Hot on the heels of the 2023 Eurovision grand finals and a sold-out Australian tour, progressive rock outfit Voyager have debuted the official music video for “Ultraviolet” ahead of their highly anticipated eighth studio album, Fearless In Love, which will be released this Friday, July 14th via Season Of Mist. The haunting and dissonant track features Sean Harmanis, vocalist of Make Them Suffer, adding to the dark and modern vibe of the song. Directed by Matt Pitcher, the video delves into the human experience within the modern era, exploring themes of depression, social media/phone addition, identity, and individualism.

“Ultraviolet” is certainly one of the darkest songs on the album,” shares the band. “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. Due to the dissonant nature of the track, we decided to enlist our good friend and fellow Australian Sean Harmanis, vocalist of metalcore band, Make Them Suffer, to perform a guest vocal spot to really portray the unsettling emotion we wanted to communicate in the track, and he totally slays. “
This Friday, July 14th, Voyager will release their long-awaited eight studio album, Fearless In Love, via Season Of Mist. The band comprised of Daniel “Danny” Estrin (vocals/keyboards), Simone Dow (guitars), Scott Kay (guitars), Alex Canion (bass) and Ashley Doodkorte (drums) have been creating music together for over a decade. On Fearless In Love sweeping vocals paired with emotive lyrics inspired by the grit and glam of 80s and 90s film overlay heavy guitar riffs and percussion to create a sonic journey that pushes the boundary of what fans have come to expect from Voyager. “Ultraviolet” is the latest song released from 11-song epic following “Dreamer,” “Promise,” and “Prince of Fire.” Fearless In Love is available or pre-order HERE.

In bursts of bright light, luminous keys, neon guitar wizardry, and stratosphere-shaking rhythms, Voyager elevate hard rock to another realm. The Perth, Australia quintet—Danny Estrin [vocals], Simone Dow [guitar], Scott Kay [guitar], Alex Canion [bass], and Ashley Doodkorte [drums]—blast off on a signature hybrid of prog, rock, and metal possibly best described as the musical equivalent of Guardians of the Galaxy. This cohort of dynamic talents and personalities initially crash-landed stateside for a now-renowned performance at the 2011 ProgPower USA Festival in Atlanta, GA. Since then, they’ve unleashed a string of fan favorite albums—V , Ghost Mile , and Colours in the Sun —in addition to sharing stages with the likes of Rhapsody of Fire and Evergrey. Australia notably handpicked Voyager as its entrant into the global Eurovision Song Contest 2023 with “Promise.” The Guardian hailed the buzzing single as “a pop number that bends the genre with trademark riffs, climactic guitars and keytar solos,” and it crashed the Top 3 of the Australian Independent Label Singles Chart. They even appeared on TODAY Australia to wave the metal flag by teaching daytime TV hosts black metal growls, as plugged by Metal Injection! Now, Voyager take flight like never before on their forthcoming eighth full-length LP, Fearless In Love, and much more to come.
