John Carpenter's soundtrack to The Fog pressed to vinyl, screening on 16mm in London

Next in Death Waltz's line of plush John Carpenter soundtracks is The Fog, which they're releasing on double vinyl in June. The artwork (which they're keeping under wraps for now) has been specially commissioned from Dinos Chapman.

The Fog will be released on one green and one clear vinyl, pressed in an edition of 1000. The double vinyl includes the original score to the 1984 film plus a record of movie cues. Death Waltz have been running a strong line in plush vinyl reissues of horror soundtracks in the last couple of years, with a clutch of Carpenter's soundtracks (including the Halloween series).

A 16mm full scope print of the film will also be screened in London on 7 June at The Nave in Islington, where Death Waltz will have copies of the record for sale. Full tracklisting and artwork specs, plus details of the London screening of the film, at this link.
