We want to take a moment to thank you for your support as we reflect upon the past year. 2016 began with the announcement of a long overdue collaboration with our friends at Twilight Creations. Creating the Zombies!!! board game soundtrack was a lot of fun and gave us the opportunity to work in a modern day setting as we put our spin on the zombie apocalypse.

This year also found us going back to our roots when we re-issued one of our very first albums, Realm of Shadows. Gavin dug through his archives and found a previously unreleased song from the original recording sessions called Serenade that we were able to add to the reissue.

August brought the unveiling of the new mobile-friendly, version our website. Thanks to the efforts of Chris at Rogues Hollow Productions and our own Sarah Mann, the website included an updated Haunted Attraction Registry, photos section, and Shop, among other things. As is the case in many years, we were fortunate to see some of you in person at the conventions we attended throughout the year. In addition to the TransWorld Haunted Attractions Show in St. Louis, Monsterpalooza, Midwest Haunters, GenCon, DragonCon, Spiel, and Mask Fest, we had the chance to be guests at the first Rue Morgue Dark Carnival Expo, which was a lot of fun. A lot of our time in the closing months of the year has been spent finalizing our plans for 2017.

2017 will mark the 20th anniversary of our self-titled Midnight Syndicate debut. We’ll be taking this opportunity to look back over these past 20 years, share memories, images, previously unreleased music, and more so please stay tuned!

Again, thank you for your support and for being a part of this journey. We wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and happy new year. See you in 2017!!

Midnight Syndicate
Midnight Syndicate Live!

Journey into the world of Midnight Syndicate with a multimedia Halloween Music concert experience you'll never forget.

Midnight Syndicate Live! has returned to Cedar Point's HalloWeekends. "We have a brand new set list and story, making this show a completely different experience from the last time we performed here in 2014," said Edward Douglas. "I am extremely excited about the changes and I think audiences are in for a real treat."

Since the Good Time Theater that housed the show previously was torn down for expansion, the new show is being performed in the 500-seat Jack Aldrich Theater. "I think that every performance space has it's own unique character, and we definitely wanted to take full advantage of the more intimate feel of the Aldrich Theater," said Gavin Goszka. "We're able to do some things here performance-wise that simply wouldn't have worked in a larger venue, and the fact that the audience is physically closer to the stage will hopefully pull them into the show in a very powerful and immersive way."

The new show runs multiple times daily every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from now through October 29th. Both Gavin and Ed will be making appearances after each show in the Midnight Syndicate merch tent outside the theater (which will be loaded with great stuff including brand new t-shirts, hoodies, and more!).
