For almost two decades now, Midnight Syndicate has forever changed the Halloween music genre with their eerie instrumental music and sounds. If you are unfamiliar with the nightmarish music of Midnight Syndicate, there's a strong possibility you have been immersed into their otherworldly atmosphere before. For instance you can hear it while facing your fears at a haunted attraction such as Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, bringing a horrific tale to life. Or when you're out shopping for the perfect spine-chilling decoration, you can hear the music echoing throughout the store putting you into the Halloween spirit.
With 17 studio albums, soundtracks, and even a feature film, Midnight Syndicate now wants to bring their horror music into a live concert that countless Halloween enthusiasts would enjoy. A Kickstarter campaign has been created by Midnight Syndicate for their one-of-the-kind Halloween concert experience, but they need your help to make it happen!

In order create the visual elements of the show, the band is teaming up with industry veterans like special FX legend Robert Kurtzman (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, KNB EFX), director Gary Jones (XENA, AXE GIANT), David "House" Greathouse (FACEOFF, Mushroomhead), Jason Carter (BABYLON 5, THE DEAD MATTER), and Jason Blaszczak of Screamline Studios (Rob Zombie's AMERICAN NIGHTMARE). "Because of the style of our music and our ties to the film, Halloween, roleplaying game, and haunted house industries we're in the perfect position to put together a unique show that blends the best of these different worlds," said Edward Douglas.
