John Carpenter’s Next Album: ‘Anthology II’ (Movie Themes 1976-1988) Coming October 6th!

John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies have been on fire over the last several years, between releasing their albums ‘Anthology’ (Movie Themes 1974-1998), and the three (so-far) ‘Lost Themes’, as well as composing the most recent ‘Halloween’ trilogy and the re-adaptation of ‘Firestarter’,  and now the trio of musicians are back at it again with ‘Anthology II’ (Movie Themes 1976-1988), which will be released October 6th from Sacred Bones Records!

Here is their first released track from the album, “Chariots of Pumpkins” from ‘Halloween 3: Season of the Witch‘:


Carpenter reflects on ‘Chariots of Pumpkins‘:

 “This piece was made for someone else’s movie, the Tommy Lee Wallace directed Halloween III,” he said. “I don’t remember what his specific direction for me was for the main titles, but I wanted to reflect a kind of science fiction feel. The sound has been updated and it was fun to redo this song. The three of us using modern and updated sounds and production has influenced the overall feel of the song.”

I am first and foremost a proud father of two daughters who may or may not be possessed by demonic entities/deadites -- time will tell on that one, but I am pretty confident that one of them translated the Necronomicon. I enjoy short walks to my movie collection, reading in goddamn piece and quiet, and watching the same movies and tv series over and over instead of discovering new stuff.
