Hot on the heels of winning Prog Magazine’s Limelight Award for being the best new band in progressive rock, Sound of Contact can announce the release of their acclaimed debut album ‘Dimensionaut’ on double vinyl LP on the 2nd December 2013. Band leader Simon Collins had this to say:
“It’s a very exciting time for this band, as we bring you another chapter of Dimensionaut. Along with our up and coming release of our second single and music video, “Pale Blue Dot”, we are also delighted to answer many of your requests for a vinyl release by responding with a special limited edition of “Dimensionaut” on vinyl, which will be available on December 2nd. We are grateful to be part of keeping rock progressive in its true meaning, bringing the future into the presence of now while still staying true to the roots which we have all been so inspired by. Thank you for your votes towards the Limelight Award, words fall short of our appreciation for your love and support and in this case actions speak louder than words. So, this is our way of saying thank you!”
The band is also making the finishing touches to the forthcoming video for new single ‘Pale Blue Dot’ which is once again being directed by Tim Glover who was at the helm for the ‘Not Coming Down’ video. Stay tuned for more information!
