Sound of Contact are set to release their debut concept album ‘Dimensionaut’ on the 20th May 2013, and to celebrate the band have revealed a sampler of the album via the UK’s PROG Magazine as the first taste of this fantastic new band.

The band recently played their first ever live show as support to Marillion. “It was a thrill playing our first Sound of Contact show at the Marillion Weekend in Montreal to thousands of people who had never heard our songs before.” says Simon Collins, lead singer and drummer of Sound of Contact. “The reception was incredible” adds Dave Kerzner, keyboardist for Sound of Contact “It really got us pumped for the upcoming Inside Out 20th Anniversary tour of Europe with Spock’s Beard and Beardfish”.
The brainchild of Simon Collins (son of legendary musician 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) and with an album mixed by Nick Davis (Genesis, XTC, Marillion), this vision has come to fruition.
In advance of the album’s release, 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 Ronen Gordon.
