Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering Press Release

Top-selling Halloween composers Midnight Syndicate take on Yuletide classics with the release of their Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering album
CLEVELAND, Ohio (Sept. 10, 2015) – For over 18 years, the music of gothic instrumental composers Midnight Syndicate has been used to set the atmosphere in haunted attractions, amusement parks, stores, and homes worldwide during the Halloween season. Now, with Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering, listeners will find out what happens when Midnight Syndicate takes them on a Yuletide-inspired musical journey. The CD version of the album was released today, with the digital version becoming available on Thursday, October 1st.

The new album features the band’s unique twist on classic holiday carols blended with new and original material. “Our goal was to treat each song in a way that would merge familiarity with originality,” said Gavin Goszka. “There are definitely recognizable elements, but plenty of additional original material as well. It also incorporates the widest instrument palette we’ve used to date and represents what we consider to be the most varied collection of songs we’ve ever released. There are serenely beautiful moments here alongside more intense, darker tracks, and the end result is a thoroughly compelling and involving listening experience.” “With so many Christmas-themed albums out there, we wanted to make this collection uniquely our own,” added Edward Douglas. “I think we were able to do that.”

Oh my head, how is Carnival Arcane already 11 years old? Ha. One of those traveling fairs with rides used to show up in the plaza down the street from me. I could smell the food and hear people screaming and I'd put that album on to go with it.

This points out the different feel of color vs black and white

Looking good as always guys!

It's cool seeing the original photo in color!

I too wish to look like a bad ass with a cane. #goals
