Humor Meets Horror – Phantom to drop first album in over eight decades

The Phantom of the Opera has been back at the pipe organ lately and, next week, will drop his first album since the 1920s.

Friend and longtime collaborator Mad Organist from one of the haunted mansions in the Black Lagoon’s Haunted Mansion Row told Jack-o’-Lantern Radio that he’s already heard the tracks.

“It’s mega, it’s totally Phantom, it’s what his fans have been waiting for,” Organist said. “It’s definitely a dope record.”

Chillboard Magazine reported that the album, “Straight Outta the Opera House,” would feature The Banshee of South Ireland, the Ghost of Christmas Past and Eminem.

“I went into the studio a few months back and got my creative processes flowing,” Phantom told reporters this weekend when he announced the new release. “Think phat pipe organ wind. This album journeys through a hybrid of opera organ, classical organ, secular organ and just plain organ organ. Three of the nine tracks have vocals that’re off the chain.”

Phantom’s previous work sold more than 52 album copies worldwide and his concerts at opera houses everywhere have sold tickets.

“Straight Outta the Opera House” is currently available for online pre-orders in the iTunes store. It’s everywhere on Tuesday.


This news brief also appeared in Jack-o’-Lantern Press, a monster blog for monsters only, from Michael Picarella, brother Tom Picarella, and Michael’s son, Robert Picarella. JLP posts monster news and entertainment weekdays between the months of August and October, and occasionally throughout the year.

Michael Picarella

He’s the Twain of the Inane. His work is taken straight from the Inanitarium, a vault of little stories that are literally about nothing, but maybe about everything. Now that you’ve taken a look, it's safe to say this guy is no Twain. He’s even better, right? Michael Picarella is an award-winning writer, amateur family man and expert in fascinations, with a taste for cookies, milk and the American Dream. His book, “Everything Ever After (Confessions of a Family Man),” is a collection of stories you can’t live without from his family humor newspaper column, “Family Men Don’t Wear Name Brands.” Additionally, Picarella is the publisher, content manager and writer of Jack-o’-Lantern Press, a monster blog for monsters only, at www.JackOLanternPress.com, and he’s also the filmmaker behind two feature-length tales of suburban noir you’ve never seen. Picarella is a homeowner living in the outskirts of Los Angeles. He battles armies of domestic gremlins with his wife, son and their pet beagle on a daily basis. Most of their life is made up of small, inane events and manias, which they call their "everything ever after." So how about a break from the BIG, the LOUD, the EXTRAORDINARY and the AMAZING?

    Phantom’s marketing folks have a remarkable sense of timing.

    I predict this album will skip platinum and go plutonium, Michael. Hahaha
