Australian progressive metal band Voyager posted a new music video for the song "Seize the Day." The video was created entirely by fan footage of either themselves or of the band in its recent live performances on the successful North American tour with Rhapsody of Fire. The song appears on the band's latest LP "The Meaning of I," available now through Sensory Records.

The concept for the video was by director Ben Berkhout the band. Berkhout commented:

"This video began as a viral campaign where Voyager fans where offered the opportunity to film the band live at The Amplifier. The catch was, it could to only be shot on a 'Smartphone' and thus began the Seize The Day 'Smartphone' Video Shoot in early March 2012.

"We got such a great response from the fans and with the confirmation of a North American Tour with Rhapsody Of Fire, we thought we'd harness the power of social media and the gift of Danny's gab to open up an invitation to the rest of the world to enter their own videos.

"It could be lip-sync, some crazy interpretive dance, driving, eating, swimming, juggling, star jumping, head-banging, rocking out or simply lying on a bed wearing a wrestling mask threatening a cat with a water pistol...... Anything! As long as you had a good time making it! And so it evolved into..... Voyager - Seize The Day (Official 'BY THE FANS' Video)

"As the Director and Editor I got to see everything in it's entirety, all 100+ hours of craziness, and I had a ball cutting every funny second of it!! I'm so stoked to have seen the dedication from all the fans out there around the world!

"Congratulations to all of you who submitted videos and congrats on being apart of this amazing social experiment, you did an amazing job and you should all be very proud!

"Cheers, Ben Berkhout"
