CHVRCHES & John Carpenter Share Two Remixes

CHVRCHES and John Carpenter have teamed up to share two extra special remixes. The iconic film director of The Thing, Halloween, Escape From New York and many more genre-defining horror classics, and legendary actor, screenwriter, and composer, John Carpenter, has reworked CHVRCHES’ recent single “Good Girls,” taken from their forthcoming new album Screen Violence, set for release on August 27. Alongside this, CHVRCHES have also reworked John Carpenter’s “Turning The Bones,” taken from his recently released album, Lost Themes III: Alive After Death. Both remixes are available digitally now and will be released on 7” vinyl on December 10 – available to pre-order via Sacred Bones now. 

Discussing the remix, CHVRCHES’ frontwoman Lauren Mayberry says, “As horror fans, we know that John Carpenter is the godfather and the gold standard so we’re so excited to get to work with him in any capacity. His films and music have been so impactful on us over the years, and without the stories he created, I am not sure that the concept of Screen Violence (and female narratives within the album) would exist in the way they do. On every album we get “remixes” but given the themes of this record, we had the idea that maybe we could get a song reimagined by a composer who has worked in that cinematic universe. John was top of our wishlist but we never really thought he’d reply, let alone that he’d send back something better than the original.”
