Legendary film director, screenwriter and composer, John Carpenter, performs a collection of his classic, newly-recorded movie soundtracks live at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas with special guest Perturbator at The Joint on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 8 p.m.

Carpenter’s third studio album, Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, is a collection of his classic movie themes newly-recorded by the collaborators that worked on his Lost Themes and Lost Themes II studio albums and subsequent tours: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies. Set for release on October 20 via Sacred Bones, Anthology… is a near-comprehensive survey of John Carpenter’s greatest themes, from his very first movie (the no-budget science fiction film “Dark Star”) to 1998’s supernatural Western, “Vampires.” Those sit alongside the driving, Led Zeppelin-influenced “Assault on Precinct 13” theme, “Halloween’s” iconic 5/4 piano riff, and the eerie synth work of “The Fog.” Carpenter and his band also cover Ennio Morricone’s bleak, minimalist theme for “The Thing.” “I asked Morricone to please compose something with a very few notes,” Carpenter says. “And brilliantly, he did.”

To accompany the announcement, Carpenter has shared the theme from 1994’s “In The Mouth of Madness.” Reminiscing on the original composition he states, “I worked on the soundtrack for ‘In the Mouth of Madness’ with Jim Lang. We never came up with a great main title theme. In a rented house on Woodrow Wilson (my house was being remodeled), I came up with a heavy metal theme inspired by Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” My friend Dave Davies played lead guitar, and now, over 20 years later, his son Daniel is playing the lead. One of my favorite themes.”

John Carpenter is a legend. As the director and composer behind dozens of classic movies, Carpenter has established a reputation as one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of modern cinema, as well as one of its most influential musicians. The minimal, synthesizer-driven themes to films like “Halloween”, “Escape From New York”, and “Assault on Precinct 13” are as indelible as their images, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter performed them live in a string of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016.

In the weeks following Anthology’s October 20 release, Carpenter will return to the road, playing both classic movie themes and material from his two Lost Themes albums. Tickets for the tour are on sale now including special VIP packages that include meet and greets with John Carpenter and exclusive merchandise (for more details check The performances will once again affirm the power of the Horror Master’s brilliant work as a composer and musician, and undoubtedly send audiences rushing home to their DVD libraries to dive yet again into the most rewarding filmography in genre cinema.

Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 track list:

1. In the Mouth of Madness
2. Assault on Precinct 13
3. The Fog
4. Prince of Darkness
5. Santiago (Vampires)

7. Halloween

“Synthwave, darksynth, neon metal – no matter what you call it, this retroactive branch of electronic music kicks serious ass, and nobody synthesizes like James Kent,” said Noisey in a 2016 feature that arrived upon the release of Kent’s (aka Perturbator) most recent full-length, The Uncanny Valley. The 13-track release won accolades worldwide, from France’s New Noise who awarded the Parisian artist the cover of their May issue, to the UK’s The Sun (“This is the soundtrack to the greatest Eighties film noir never made”) to NPR who praised Kent’s adept attention to detail, saying his music showcases “the contrast of its shimmering beauty against an industrial wasteland.
