John Carpenter Shares New Single “Angel’s Asylum”, Expands US Tour, ‘Lost Themes II’ out 4.15 via Sacred Bones‏

Following the announcement of John Carpenter‘s forthcoming album Lost Themes II, out April 15th on Sacred Bones, and details of his first ever live performances, he is today pleased to share the album’s second single “Angel’s Asylum”.

With the title referencing the Asylum comic book series he created with his wife and film producer Sandy King, John Carpenter 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.”
