John Mitchell has teased an upcoming new project, The Lighthouse Experiment and you can wacth a teaser video below.

The project sees Mitchell hooking up with Chris Hargrave of electro-rock duo Fishtank. Mitchell has previously worked with Fishtank singer Talitha Giusti. Former Frost* and current Steve Hackett and Trifecta drummer Craig Blundell, also features.

"I wanted to write with Chris because the music he comes up with is  much more ambient and chordally different to mine and his guitar style is very different to mine. I didn’t play any guitar on this EP," Mitchell explains. 'My go to long term collaborator Craig Blundell plays drums on the EP. We’re putting it out as a digital only release to begin with on bandcamp on Friday."
