Last year, Master of Horror John Carpenter rocked audiences with synth-infused live performances of tracks from his latest album, Anthology: Movie Themes 1974–1998, featuring themes from 13 of his films. Not only is Carpenter scoring the new Halloween movie that comes out this fall, but he'll also be hitting the road once again in October for a new music tour, giving horror fans the ultimate autumnal treat.

Announced on Twitter, John Carpenter's new tour kicks off on October 10th in Amsterdam and wraps up on Halloween night in Los Angeles. You can check out the full schedule in the image below or by visiting Sacred Bones Records' official website.

For those unfamiliar, we have full details on Carpenter's Anthology: Movie Themes 1974–1998 album below. Those attending can cross their fingers for a live performance of Carpenter's new Halloween score, although that hasn't been confirmed. As someone who has attended one of Carpenter's live performances, though, I can safely say that no matter what the Master of Horror plays, it will alter your DNA in a good way.

Anthology: Movie Themes 1974–1998: "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. Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 collects 13 classic themes from Carpenter’s illustrious career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.
