Lonely Robot, the project masterminded by producer, guitarist and singer/songwriter
John Mitchell (Kino, Frost*, Arena, It Bites), released their latest album ‘Under Stars’ in April, and to celebrate they joined forces with Space Rocks for a special launch event that saw a playback of the album with exclusive visual accompaniment.
Now they are pleased to announce that they are holding another special event on Tuesday 16th July at The Screen on The Green, Islington, London. Fans will get a chance to hear the album in full, with stunning specially-commissioned CGI films accompanying each track on the big screen. John will also take part in a Q&A session with Space Rocks co-founder Alexander Milas to discuss the influence of space and sci-fi on Lonely Robot’s trilogy of albums.
Finally, legendary comedian Rowland Rivron will host a general Q&A, covering John’s multiple bands and projects, with plenty of opportunity for questions from fans. Everybody who attends will also receive a signed poster. Tickets and details are available here: http://tiny.cc/9zqo8y

The album once again features drums by long-time collaborator Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson), plus bass contributions from Steve Vantsis (Fish). All other instrumentation on the album is performed by Mitchell himself.
John comments of the album: “It is the final part in the astronaut trilogy, and was recorded over an intensive month and a half period. This time I wanted to reference my love of 80s synthwave pop a little more – so beware the 808! The title is derived from the belief that we as humans spend far too much time not noticing the beauty around us and far too much time tethered to technology.”
