The Paradox Twin have confirmed the line up for their forthcoming new album and summer dates with John Mitchell joining the band

The Paradox Twin have announced the celebration of the 6th anniversary of ‘The Importance of Mr. Bedlam’ with a special tour across Europe and the UK.
Titled ‘The Importance of Mr. Bedlam + Other Stories’, the tour will feature three dates in Europe and one in the UK, where they will perform the album in its entirety along with select tracks from their second album (”Silence from Signals’‘).

This tour is a unique opportunity for fans to delve into the creative process behind the album, as we explore the themes of extraterrestrial life and government secrecy that inspired the band’s founder, Danny Sorrell, during its creation. Through captivating visuals, the band will take audiences on a journey into the depths of his imagination and the investigative spirit that fueled his songwriting.

The band also announced that John Mitchell is joining the band. John’s impressive background with bands like Frost* and Lonely Robot brings a new dynamic to the TPT’s sound.

Additionally, the band will be offering exclusive tour merchandise, available in limited quantities, giving fans a special memento of this milestone celebration. Join us on this unforgettable journey as we explore the mysteries of ‘The Importance of Mr. Bedlam’ and beyond.

In addition to the above, the band will also be performing a special set at Wokingham Festival on August 26th Bank Holiday Monday with a slightly different line up. Guitarist Anthony William from Ex Simple Minds who was also a member of Kim Seviour’s live band will be depping for John who will be in South America with the David Cross Band.

Danny Sorrell said ‘I’m really excited for this new phase in the band’s development. Having worked with John on the production of the first two albums, it’s great that he believes in the band so much that he has decided to join us. As well as working on new music it’s wonderful to be able to revisit our debut album and more with such a talented group of musicians.’

The Paradox Twin

The Paradox Twin was formed by singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboard player, Danny Sorrell who, following the writing of the band’s debut album ‘The Importance of Mr. Bedlam’, walked into Outhouse Studio, the well known recording studio run by producer and musician extraordinaire John Mitchell, for the recording. John was so impressed with what he heard that he suggested to Chris Hillman, John’s partner in the White Star Records label, that they should release the album. Chris was as impressed as John was and so the band were signed to the label. 

The album was very well received with the video of the first single from the album, ‘Planeta’, gaining a nomination at the prestigious Progressive Music Awards even before the album had been released.


The band since has released its much anticipated follow up album Silence from Signals, which, just like their debut, has received outstanding reviews, and one not to be missed!
The forthcoming new album is now being recorded and more info about it will come soon…
