“AUSTRALIA – Australian progressive metal quintet, Voyager, has been announced as a nominee for ‘Breakthrough Artist’ in PROG Magazine’s Progressive Music Awards 2014 presented by Orange Amplification. Fan voting is now open online at: http://awards.progmagazine.com/.
In its short but illustrious history, The Progressive Music Awards has received both critical and public acclaim for acknowledging and celebrating one of the most successful but unsung genres of music. Previous award recipients include Rick Wakeman and Ian Anderson as Prog Gods in 2012 and 2013 respectively, along with other million-selling rock legends such as Genesis, Carl Palmer, Rush and Hawkwind’s Dave Brock also being recognized. It has also awarded up-and-coming artists such as TesseracT, Sound Of Contact and Big Big Train who have all gone from strength-to -strength since picking up awards.
‘Breakthrough Artist’ nominee, Voyager, released its fifth album, V, on June 3 in North America with distribution through Nightmare Records. The Kickstarter-funded, 13- track album can be purchased now on Bandcamp at: http://voyager.bandcamp.com/ or via the Nightmare Records webstore at: http://www.nightmarerecords.com/online-store/voyager-v-special-slip-case.
V was recorded at Templeman Audio with producer, Matt Templeman. The band calls the release “pure, polished Voyager with a modern feel; we are insanely excited about unleashing this.”
