John Carpenter's Lost Themes II, out April 15 via Sacred Bones, was made with a band that includes his son and godson, and continues in the proggy/synthy fashion of his best-known scores to his films. You can stream the whole thing via NPR, and watch a live-in-studio video for opening track "Distant Dream" (directed by Carpenter himself) below.

Carpenter and his band will be touring this year, including NYC's Playstation Theatre on July 8. Tickets are still available. More dates have been added since our last post and all are listed below.
