Midnight Syndicate is the king of the horror movie soundtracks that exist in your mind. They have also provided the soundtrack to some of the biggest haunted attractions in the world, including Halloween Horror Nights, and other haunts all around the world. Now, they are taking their distinctive sound to the stage with Midnight Syndicate Live! And they are premiering it at America’s Roller Coast!
This year at Cedar Point’s Halloweekends, Midnight Syndicate will bring an all new stage show to life that mixes special effects, live performances and of course the signature music of your nightmares.
“HalloWeekends is the perfect place to launch the first Midnight Syndicate Live! experience,” said Midnight Syndicate’s Edward Douglas. “The venue is awesome and will allow us to fully realize the exciting, one-of-a-kind show we envision. We’re also really psyched to be working with a legendary amusement park that Gavin (Goszka) and I both grew up in.” Charles Bradshaw, Corporate V.P. of Entertainment for Cedar Fair, added, “Working with these industry leading music producers on a live show is an exciting prospect. The final product is going to amaze.”
The group has been bringing nightmares to life for over 16 years, and have just as many studio albums. They’ve been featured on actual horror movie soundtracks, video games and more. Ed Douglas has even directed a film under The Midnight Syndicate Films label.
Among those attached to the project include: special effects legend Robert Kurtzman (From Dusk Till Dawn, KNB EFX) and his Creature Corps, David “House” Greathouse (Faceoff, Mushroomhead), Beki Ingram (Faceoff), director Gary Jones (Boogeyman, Axe Giant), 529 Films, EFX-TEK, and Screamline Studios.
We’ve had the pleasure of talking to them several times, and this is a project we’ve first heard the rumblings about several years ago. This is going to be an amazing show, and it will be included in your Cedar Point admission.
Halloweekends runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night from September 12th November 1st.
