Sound Of Contact have signed with InsideOut Music for the release of their debut album ‘Dimensionaut’ on May 20th, 2013.
The brainchild of Simon Collins (son of Phil Collins) and keyboardist/co-producer Dave Kerzner, Sound of Contact marks the beginning of something that Collins had always wanted to put his hand to after ten years of promoting his own solo career. With the help of Kerzner as well as Matt Dorsey, Kelly Nordstrom and Hannah Stobart (Wishing Tree) with an album mixed by Nick Davis (Genesis, XTC, Marillion) this vision has come to fruition.
In advance of the album’s release on May 20th, 2013, the band will begin a stint with legendary prog band Spock’s Beard, and label-mates Beardfish as part of the InsideOut Music 20th Anniversary Tour a premier event that will see the band taking their music to Europe for the first time. The line-up for these shows will feature Collins and Kerzner as well as Matt Dorsey, John Wesley (Porcupine Tree, Fish) and Jonathan Schang (District 97). Before this tour, however, the band will be featured as part of the Marillion Weekend in Montreal, Canada performing on March 24th, 2013. This will mark the beginning of what is sure to be an incredibly exciting and eventful year for the band.
Check out the fantastic trailer for the album at this location.
