They should have been our Eurovision Entry but alas, Perth synth-wave prog-rockers Voyager will entertain fans in our own backyard on their upcoming Runaway Tour which gets its name from their new single which they’ve just dropped the music video for!
Voyager Shortlisted For Eurovision – Australia DecidesGrowing up in Germany, Eurovision was part of my lifeblood when it came to writing music and performing. What started out in jest back in 2015 when some of our fans made a joke that we should contend for ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’, has made a transition to a pretty odd reality for us. Each year we’ve submitted a track to Eurovision via the Song Portal, never imagining we’d ever get a look in as a metal band. But this year we had a call to say we had been shortlisted, and that we were invited to the live TV show. It was a pretty surreal experience for Ash and me, seeing ourselves on the screen and we’d love to thank of our fans for your constant support in pushing us beyond the realms of possibility.
Metal music isn’t hugely represented on national TV or daytime radio, but we’d like to think that we’re one step closer to opening more doors for bands like us who are just trying to reach more people with our music. Who knows, maybe next year…. – Danny.
With thanks to SBS Eurovision for having us, and DarKSpiritPhotography for making us look good on screen.
