Aussies head over to Blighty for five dates, in­clud­ing a Lon­don show­case gig.

Prog - - Intro - Voy­ager are re­turn­ing

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
