VOYAGER‘s peculiar and unique sound merges Amorphis’ thirst for melody, Soilwork’s heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-Ha’s Morton Harket into a sound all their own. The Meaning of I is set for North American release October 11, 2011 via Sensory Records. But the album will be made available early to fans attending the band’s upcoming North American debut performances in September. Their first trip to the States will begin with a show in Brooklyn, New York, co-headlining the gig with labelmates Creation’s End. That will be the warm-up gig for VOYAGER‘s performance at ProgPower USA in Atlanta, Georgia the following week, where the band will share co-headline slots of the festival with Therion, Ihsahn, Sanctuary, Dream Evil, Labyrinth and more. Back home VOYAGER have also confirmed a record release show on October 15th, as well as five dates supporting Children Of Bodom across Australia!
