Check out the official clip for 'Lonely Planet' below:
Iommi commented about the song recently: "Well here's something different, one of my demo ideas has been chosen as the Armenian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest! It went on a short list and Saturday night was voted as the winner. I did the music and the performing band, Dorians, wrote the lyrics, it's called 'Lonely Planet'. They're a good band, the singer has a really good voice and the lyrics they've written are in English. It now goes to the semi-final on May 16th in Malmo, Sweden. Glad to be able to be involved with Armenia again, the school is coming along fine, they've got the furniture sorted and it will be opened late summer."
The dates set for the two Eurovision semi-finals are May 14th and 16th, with the final taking place on the evening of May 18.
