Australian electro prog sensation VOYAGER recently debuted an online concert via the Veeps Platform! The show was filmed in the band’s hometown of Perth (AUS) and saw immense success. Now, the band is sharing the standalone performance video for “Severomance,” which is taken from the same set, ahead of their upcoming February Australian tour dates and one-off show at Milk Bar in Perth on December 12. The video can be seen below.
The show, dubbed “Voyager Biosecurity (Human Biosecurity Emergency) (Human Coronavirus with Pandemic Potential) (Overseas Travel Ban Emergency Requirements) Determination (Cth) Online Show 2020,” was named after the legislation that was passed in Australia that is preventing the band from touring. The stream took place at the “Department of Prog, Synths and Riffs” and can still be seen until December 31, 2020. The full set can be viewed at THIS LOCATION.
The band comments, “We really enjoyed experiencing a new kind of live experience, and it was beautiful seeing fans join us all around the world. We don’t know what the future holds, but right now we’re going to make the best of it and try to unite us and our fans in an alternative way. Right now, it’s looking positive for our Australian tour in February and we’re taking this show for a test run on December 12 at Milk Bar in Perth.”
Moreover, Guitarist Scott Kay recently taught fans how to play a riff from the band’s song “Colours” in the latest installment of Guitar World’s “Sick Riffs” series! In addition to the play-through, Kay also includes the tablature. Watch and learn at THIS LOCATION.
The song is taken from the band’s 2019 release, ‘Colours in the Sun,’ which can be downloaded and streamed HERE.
‘Colours in the Sun‘ was recently the winner of The Independent Music Award in the Rock/Hard Rock Album category. The record was released in November of 2019 and landed a coveted #1 placement on the Australian Independent Albums chart! ‘Colours in the Sun‘ also debuted at #7 on Independent Label Albums as well as #27 on Official iTunes Australia.
Moreover, the band has reissued 2017’s ‘Ghost Mile‘ as a digipak version, which contains three bonus tracks which were recorded during the VOYAGER show at ProgPower in 2017. It can be ordered HERE.
