‘To all of our fans & friends across the world, we have some very important news to share with you all. Simon, Matt and Dave have decided to part ways musically.
Simon and Matt will carry on as Sound of Contact while Dave will be focusing on his company Sonic Reality and his own music projects.
Simon, Matt and Dave want to assure fans that this is an amicable split and, while there is still the possibility of future collaboration between them, Sound of Contact will continue and be performing this year with a new line up.
It’s going to be an exciting new year and we all appreciate your ongoing love and support!
SOC and the Lightyears team’
Sound of Contact will be appearing live this April, firstly on The Moody Blues Cruise (2nd-7th) and following immediately after on Cruise To The Edge (7th-12th). The band are also scheduled to perform at ROSfest in the US on the 3rd May 2014.

Prog Magazine (UK)
‘A dense, multifaceted and rather special album.’
‘A unique album to repeatedly savour’
Classic Rock Society (UK)
