VOYAGER REVEAL STRING OF UK SHOWS
Aussies head over to Blighty for five dates, including a London showcase gig.
to the UK this summer. The fivepiece, whose album Ghost Mile was released last year, will headline London’s Borderline on July 3 as part of a Prog showcase, with a second show confirmed at Birmingham’s Asylum 2 the following day. The Perth band will also perform at Ramblin’ Man Fair in Maidstone (July 1), UK Tech Fest in Newark-on-Trent (6-8) and Bloodstock in Derby (August 10-12).
“We played at the Underworld [in London] last year, which was amazing, so we’re really excited to get back to the UK,” says bassist Alex Canion. “We’re really stoked to get over there and do what we do best, which is play hi-octane, electrifying shows.
“Bloodstock is definitely one of those dream festivals and we’re in amazing company, but there’s something about London that’s really exciting to us. The Borderline gig will be a little bit longer so we’ll make it more of a journey. A lot of the big festival shows have shorter sets, so we really like to do balls-to-the-wall banger after banger. But we do enjoy slowing things down for the longer sets, where we can play a little bit more of the brooding ballads! We’re going to play a varied set throughout the history of the band. We like to keep it interesting and it’s going to be really fun.”
Voyager also have two shows booked at Evoken Fest in Japan before they head off to Atlanta for ProgPower USA in September. For more, visit www.facebook.com/voyageraustralia. NRS
