All the way from Australia, we are over the moon to welcome Voyager to the Space Rocks Session 3 live bill! Formed in Perth in 1999, Voyager are known for their incredibly innovative music and their profound belief in the power of science – in fact, they’re actually named after NASA’s 1977 mission to explore the outer solar system!
Voyager tell us that Brightstar is about the relationship between science, art and nature. Featuring drone footage taken from space satellite sites across Western Australia, it explores the synergy of how science and creative expression go hand-in-hand.
“Brightstar is about the power of rationality,” says Voyager frontman Danny Estrin. “The importance of science as an art, of facts, of the demise of empirical evidence in favour 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.”
Voyager built on the huge success of their sixth album, 2017’s Ghost Mile by touring and playing with the likes of Deftones, Leprous, Nightwish, and Coheed and Cambria. They recently signed to renowned worldwide metal record label Seasons of Mist for their upcoming album, so they’re set to go stratospheric this year. We think they’re the ideal addition to Space Rocks live bill! They join Amplifier, along with the headlining band – to be announced on Monday.
