Voyager Releases New Song “Ultraviolet” featuring Sean Harmanis
Australian progressive metal band Voyager, consisting of Daniel Estrin (vocals), Simone Dow(guitar), Scott Kay (guitar), Ashley Doodkorte (drums) and Alex Canion (bass), will their eighth studio album “Fearless in Love” this Friday (July 14th).
From the album, the band released the fourth single called “Ultraviolet” along with a music video on July 10, 2023.
This time, the band teamed up with Australian metalcore band Make Them Suffer's lead singer Sean Harmanis on the track.
The track was written by Voyager and produced by Matt Templeman and Voyager.
The accompanying video was directed by Matt Pitcher.
Voyager said of the song, “Ultraviolet” is certainly one of the darkest songs on the album. As the protagonist struggles to cope with the pressures of the modern world and its insane demands, the song has a message that we hope will resonate with many people, and we collaborated with director Matt Pitcher to tell this story in a cinematic way. Due to the dissonant nature of the track, we decided to enlist our good friend and fellow Australian Sean Harmanis, vocalist of metalcore band, Make Them Suffer, to perform a guest vocal spot to really portray the unsettling emotion we wanted to communicate in the track, and he totally slays.”
- Daniel Estrin continued, “I feel like we came full circle with our music video for 'Ultraviolet', and it was great to combine and reflect on the history of both my legal and musical journey until this point. A lot of my life is centred around The University of Western Australia so it has a very, very special place in my heart and always will. As our eighth album release "Fearless In Love" approaches on Friday, I am filled with gratitude at all of the opportunities and support we've been afforded as a band over the years. I'm so excited to release this album into the world, and I really hope you'll love it as much as we do. This is a dive into the dark side of Voyager, it's brooding, crushing and equally beautiful. We're proud of this one.”
Director Matt Pitcher said of the video, “Through the story of a deteriorating relationship 'Ultraviolet' delves into the human experience within a modern era, exploring themes of depression, social media/phone addiction, identity and individualism. Much like the elusive yet dangerous nature of ultraviolet light, these often unseen forces hold immense power in shaping the course of our existence.”
