Started in late 2007 as Voyager, the Boston, Massachusetts collective released a well-received self-titled EP in 2008, followed by a limited vinyl-only split release with Philadelphia’s Monolith in early 2010. Following two years of conflicting schedules and limited live shows, the group has re-emerged as VYGR, and has recorded their debut full-length record, “Hypersleep”, at the Planet-Z studio in Hadley, MA with renowned producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Crowbar) at the helm. The new album is slated for release in early 2011 through San-Francisco based label Creator-Destructor. « hide
