Taking elements of hardcore, math-metal, ambient electronica and splicing them with buckets of quirky charisma, NOW, VOYAGER’s musical creation has caused some serious excitement in their homeland and it’s quickly spreading throughout the rest of Europe.
To get a feel for what the band are about, check out the track ‘The Surface’, taken from their debut EP ‘Seas’ here:
On a mission to take their sound far and wide, NOW, VOYAGER kick off their campaign with an eight date tour with Bury Tomorrow throughout Scandinavia and then come to the UK to play Summer Jam in July.

Upon forming in 2012 and the self-release of their ‘Seas’ EP, NOW, VOYAGER instantly stood out as something special in their local scene. Word rapidly spread throughout Belgium and suddenly the band found themselves opening up many big tours that passed through in 2012, including The Devil Wears Prada (US), Memphis May Fire (US) The Color Morale (US), Dream on Dreamer (Oz), Eyes Set to Kill (US), While She Sleeps (UK) Bury Tomorrow (UK), August Burns Red (US) and Veil of Maya(US). They were also chosen to play on the 2011 Groezrock line-up, which was an exceptional achievement for such a new band.
With new material written and a hunger to take things to the next level, the band travelled to the UK at the end of 2012 to record their new EP at Outhouse Studios, and also played a run of dates with Reading's Attention Thieves. They kicked of 2013 with a two week European tour supporting UK Alt-rock band Violet, and are ready to make this the year they make a huge impact on the rest of the world.
“Where We’ll Start” will be released on the 20 May; there will be a limited run of 50 physical copies and it will be available on itunes and other major digital outlets.
