Australian synth-prog rock outfit Voyager are back with their long-awaited eighth studio album, Fearless In Love, scheduled for release on 14th July via Season of Mist.
In celebration, the band have also released their new single from the album, the magnificent ‘Prince of Fire’.

Fearless In Love was written and recorded between 2020 and 2022. The writing process was very different to how we’ve done things in the past,” explains vocalist and frontman Danny Estrin. “As a result, the album is more cohesive and exciting with a cinematic feel, hailing back to gritty films of the 80’s and 90’s showcasing all the layers that make up Voyager. This album takes you on a ride through a dark city and leaves you on a more pensive, reflective note by the end.”
Perhaps one of the heaviest tracks in Voyager‘s history, new single ‘Prince of Fire’ follows the album’s protagonist, desperately trying harder to be better but continuing to go back to his old ways. The accompanying video features showstopping visuals including pyrotechnics and LEDs, which highlight the massive production and experimentation that went into creating the song.
The video is a fitting recognition of Voyager‘s scope and scale, as next week the band have the distinct honour of representing Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 in Liverpool. As long-term fans of the competition, the band has attempted to be in the competition since Australia announced its participation in 2015, but it was not until their multi-million streamed single ‘Promise‘ that it finally became their time to shine.
Voyager – comprised of Daniel “Danny” Estrin (vocals/keyboards), Simone Dow (guitars), Scott Kay (guitars), Alex Canion (bass) and Ashley Doodkorte (drums) – have been creating music together for over a decade. Fearless In Love pairs sweeping vocals with emotive lyrics, inspired by the grit and glam of 80’s and 90’s film. Overlaid heavy guitar riffs and crashing percussion create a triumphant sonic journey that push the boundaries of what fans have come to expect from Voyager.
