SOUND OF CONTACT Signs Worldwide Deal with InsideOut Music; Debut Album set for Release in May

InsideOut Music is proud to announce that they have signed a worldwide deal with the band SOUND OF CONTACT. The brainchild of Simon Collins (son of legendary musician Phil Collins) and keyboardist/co-producer Dave Kerzner, the band will release their debut album 'Dimensionaut' on May 28, 2013 in North America. SOUND OF CONTACT marks the beginning of a new chapter for Collins - after ten years as a solo artist, his dream of being in a band has come to fruition with the help of Kerzner, Matt Dorsey, Kelly Nordstrom and Hannah Stobart (Wishing Tree), and a debut record mixed by Nick Davis (Genesis, XTC, Marillion). On the signing to InsideOut, Collins comments: "I'm really excited about working with InsideOut Music and Century Media in what I feel will be a long and successful relationship between my new band Sound of Contact and a label that truly loves music and gets what we're doing."

Check out the trailer for the album here:

Label-head Thomas Waber adds: "I am extremely pleased about this new partnership with Sound Of Contact and we are really looking forward to working on their amazing debut album!"

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, Kerzner and Matt Dorsey joined by John Wesley (Porcupine Tree, Fish) and Jonathan Schang (District 97). Prior to this tour, 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.

Watch out for more information on their forthcoming debut concept album 'Dimensionaut' in the coming weeks!
