Full Details and Art Reveal! Death Waltz Recording Co.’s “ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13”; Beyond Fest Exclusives
Death Waltz Recording Co., the boutique label committed to collectible reissues and releases of classic and contemporary genre scores, are gearing up to launch their ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 Vinyl in exciting fashion. One of the most influential, and grooviest, electronic scores will see a stacked vinyl package and a kickoff party at L.A.’s upcoming Beyond Fest with one night only exclusives.
Releasing November 18th, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 will host a John Carpenter-approved remaster of the score on “180 gm vinyl pressed on bloody red & Vanilla swirl vinyl housed in a heavyweight gatefold casebound tip on Jacket featuring spot UV varnish.” Featuring exclusive art by frequent Mondo collaborator and Fango fave Jay Shaw (revealed in the Assault on Death Waltz trailer above!), the package itself will include an eight-page fold out booklet and poster with sleeve notes from Carpenter, star Austin Stoker and two essays from the great Clint Mansell (BLACK SAWN, STOKER) and FANGORIA’s own Chris Alexander.
If you’re in Los Angeles for Beyond Fest however (see full lineup here, including details on the Fango-sponsored British Invasion Night), October 10th will see your first chance to pick up ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 alongside a 35mm screening of the film with Stoker in attendance and a live performance from composer Alan Howarth.
Also for sale on the night will be an exclusive audio cassette(!) of the score and a limited edition charity print by Jeremy Wheeler, with proceeds going to the Humane Society of America (as chosen by Carpenter). The John Carpenter-signed print (below) is glow-in-the-dark, an edition of 150 and will run $30.
