After bringing Australia back to the Top Ten at Eurovision in Liverpool, Australis’s 2023 representatives Voyager have released their new album “Fearless In Love”, which is their first album in nearly four years.
Voyager’s 8th album is finally out
Speaking about the release of their album, Voyager mentioned that the recording took place at a ‘transformational time’ and that their new music reflects this and are proud of their latest release.
After many years of writing, demoing, isolating, perfecting and recording, we are proud to present our 8th album in full, “Fearless In Love”. We are so proud of this album. It comes at a transformational time in our lives, and the music reflects that feeling perfectly. We have so many people to thank throughout the last four or so years for what we now have, and this year in particular is one we will never forget.
Thank you for everyone who has or will listen to Fearless in Love, either now or in years to come. We love making music for you, and for us, and we hope you enjoy this new 45 minute journey as much as we enjoyed making it

Who are Voyager?
Voyager was formed in 1999 by a group of friends studying at the University of Western Australia. The current line-up consists of Daniel Estrin (vocals and keyboard), Simone Dow (guitar), Scott Kay (guitar), Alex Canion (bass) and Ashley Doodkorte (drums). Estrin, an immigration lawyer by day, is the only original member of the band remaining in the line-up.
The band’s first album, Element V, was released in 2003. It was picked up by Dutch label DVS Records for European distribution, which saw the band begin their international success. The next years saw them play at prog and metal festivals across Europe, including ProgPower. Their second album, uniVers, was distributed across the USA by Locomotive Records, and saw widespread acclaim. They have released a total of seven records – the most recent being 2019’s Colours In The Sun. In addition, they have toured with a number of major European bands including Epica, Nightwish, Klone and Children of Bodom.
