Metal Band Voyager Advance to Final Round of 2023 Eurovision Contest
The synth-laden Australian progressive metal band Voyager have advanced to the final round of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, as The Guardian has reported. Eurovision is same competition that helped make the Italian rockers Maneskin a household name.
On Thursday (May 11), Voyager performed their submitted song "Promise" for Eurovision's second semi-final in England. They now find themselves ready to represent Australia at the May 13 final against artists and songs from 25 other countries. Voyager's eighth studio album, Fearless in Love, led by the single "Prince of Fire," arrives July 14.
Near the bottom of this post, see the album art and track list for Fearless in Love, followed by Voyager's "Promise" music video and upcoming tour dates.
Speaking to the Associated Press this week, Voyager lead singer and keyboardist Danny Estrin explained how the band's success has already exceeded their expectations, and how they're hoping to let their love for the music shine through onstage in the final.

"You are fiercely competitive in some ways, but in other ways, you're just all there to have a good time and perform to the best of your abilities," Estrin said. "It's all about the music [at] the end of the day. Does it mean we don't have what it takes to win it? I think we do."
