Lonely Robot, the project masterminded by producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*, Arena), released its debut album Please Come Home earlier this year and are set to play two special one-off live shows this December. In anticipation of this, a video for the track 'The Boy In The Radio' has been released, featuring none other than Peter Cox (Go West) on vocals. John Mitchell had this to say:
"Boy In The Radio is a fictional tale about an insular kid who only finds his true voice when he shifts into a greater dimension. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. A big thank you to Peter Cox for contributing his time and energy, and in doing so, making this boy's dream a reality."

As mentioned previously, John and his band will play two special one-off shows where he will be performing tracks from Please Come Home as well as brand new material. John comments: "Lonely Robot 2 is shaping up to be another stellar adventure but this time we're drifting into the unknown world of the subconscious. The dream begins in Spring!"
The two dates are as follows:
4/12/15 - Cultuurpodium Boerderij, Zoetermeer, Netherlands
20/12/15 - Scala, London, UK
John had this to say about the live dates:
"The reaction to the album has been overwhelming, and I can't wait to present these songs in a live setting with a full band. Expect some brand new material, which will be on a new album coming early next year, plus maybe a few special guests."
