John Carpenter Themes On Vinyl: Live Performance Of “Escape From New York”

John Carpenter is at his most creative stages with his music these days, and this just proves he is still the master of horror. You’ll soon have the joy of owning his greatest themes in vinyl form, which will be so amazing!

“These 12″ releases include the themes to Halloween b/w Escape From New York and Assault on Precinct 13 b/w The Fog, newly rerecorded by Carpenter and his Lost Themes bandmates. May it serve as a bridge between the Horror Master’s legendary, still relevant past and his remarkable present.

Each double A-sided 12′ will be available in deluxe limited edition mylar mirrorboard sleeves and as picture discs.”

You can find the Assault on Precinct 13/The Fog combo at this link, and for the Halloween/Escape From New York combo you can pre-order it here. Both of these will be available June 17th, 2016.

And for a very special treat, John Carpenter has released his live studio performance of the Escape From New York theme. Check it out below right now!

I’m personally anticipating his live studio performance of the Halloween theme.
