John Carpenter streams Angel's Asylum

Horror icon John Carpenter has released a stream of his track Angel’s Asylum.

It’s the second song to be released from his upcoming album Lost Themes II, due out on April 15 via Sacred Bones Records. He previously made Distant Dream available to stream.

The song title references the Asylum comic book series Carpenter created with his wife and film producer Sandy King.

He says: “Angel’s Asylum has a driving rock sound and is more reminiscent of my later work. We initially started writing it for the comic book and we liked it so much we decided to put it on the album.”

Carpenter will hit to the road in support of Lost Themes II later this year, and will take part in the ATP Halloween event Release The Bats in the UK in October.

Lost Themes II is available for pre-order.
