After a long-awaited debut performance on the Eurovision stage in Liverpool, Australian electronic rock outfit Voyager have snagged a spot in the highly competitive finals. As long-term fans of the competition, the band has attempted to be in the competition since Australia announced its participation in 2015 but it was not until their multi-million streamed single “Promise” that it finally became their time to shine. Voyager will face off against the other finalists as part of the grand finale Saturday, May 13th.
More information on the broadcast and how to watch the competition can be found via Eurovision’s website.
For the first time in Eurovision’s history, fans from the United States are eligible to vote for their favorites HERE.
Last week, Voyager announced their first album in four years, Fearless In Love, will be released July 14th via Season of Mist. The album’s 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.
‘Fearless In Love’ will be released on July 14th and is available for pre-order https://orcd.co/fearlessinlove.
“Fearless In Love was written and recorded between 2020 and 2022. The writing process was very different to how we’ve done things in the past,” explains Danny Estrin. “As a result, the album is more cohesive and exciting with a cinematic feel, hailing back to gritty films of the 80’s and 90’s showcasing all the layers that make up Voyager. This album takes you on a ride through a dark city and leaves you on a more pensive, reflective note by the end.”
The tracklisting for Fearless In Love is:
1. The Best Intentions
2. Prince Of Fire
3. Ultraviolet ft. Sean Harmanis of Make Them Suffer
5. The Lamenting
11. Gren (Fearless In Love)
Next month, Voyager will have the distinct honor of representing Australia at Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool. As long-term fans of the competition, the band has attempted to be in the competition since Australia announced its participation in 2015 but it was not until their multi-million streamed single “Promise” that it finally became their time to shine. The iconic competition will be broadcast to over 160 million people during the Grand Final and for the first time US fans will be able to vote for the first time. Eurovision 2023 takes place in Liverpool from May 9th – May 13th and can be streamed online HERE.
