MIDNIGHT SYNDICATE RELEASES FIRST-EVER LIVE ALBUM

 CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 11, 2021 – Nearly three decades into their career, dark music pioneers Midnight Syndicate will release their first live album, Live Shadows, on June 11. Recorded between 2014 and 2019 at their multimedia Midnight Syndicate Live! shows at Cedar Point HalloWeekends, the album features new material and newly-arranged live versions of music spanning their career. A series of music videos highlighting each of their four Midnight Syndicate Live! productions are being released along with the album. Live Shadows will be available digitally and on CD and limited-edition purple vinyl.

“This album distills four years’ worth of immersive live performances into a collection of tracks that we feel truly represents the essence of these shows,” said Gavin Goszka.

“To this point, all of our shows have had their runs at the Cedar Point amusement park in Ohio,” added Edward Douglas, “so releasing this album and the accompanying music videos gives us a chance to share a part of the Midnight Syndicate Live! experience with fans wherever they may live,” added Edward Douglas.

If Midnight Syndicate had been around in the late 19th century, we would have loved to have performed at (or simply lurked about) Cabaret de L'Enfer in Paris. This hell-themed cabaret was heavy on ambience as guests enjoyed drinks in "the abyss" while being entertained by red imps, devilish musicians, and illusionists. Certainly a precursor to not only to themed restaurants but also haunted attractions! Recommended listening: "Descent Into the Depths" on Spotify spoti.fi/3qMipnF, YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=smzTRJrznW4 , also available on Alexa and Apple Music.

Rumor has it this place and others like it, was the influence behind Disney haunted manor. Disney drove an ambulance when he was 14 in France.

Reminds me of Le Théâtre du Grand-GuignolI'm planning to produce a play in honor of this Théâtre.Your music would fit right in!

I created an homage to this entrance at a haunt I did many years ago for over 10 years. for a few of those years I think 4, we used your universal monsters music and displayed the poster out front.

I can completely see you guys there!On a side note I’m a writer and one place I get inspiration from is music, from a single song to an entire album. (I wrote an entire Novella looping one song for 9 hours a few years ago! 😂) I never pick when or where inspiration will strike. And when it happens I’m locked in until I get it all out on paper, just the same when I deal with noisy characters. Currently I am OBSESSED with ‘Carnival Arcane’ (the Circus has always been chilling to me, I have Coulrophobia, severely) the tone for this album has my mind going a mile a minute for a week now, fleshing out story boards!!! THANX BUNCHES! I Love How Your music tells a story without words! 🤩

It isn't possible to love this any more than I do right now!!! So very cool. The world needs more places like this!

Wow what a dream performance space!

Here's a page from a Phantom story, written by me, art by Percy Ochoa, which will be published in the Australian Phantom comic book later this year.

World's first goth club!

This is beautiful! Love y'all's music! Helps me get to sleep at night. So calming to me! Thanks for all you create!!

This needs to be resurrected….come on ….this is just too cool🥰👹

Sounds like fun. Reminds me of the Grand guignol. www.grandguignol.com/history.htm

I thought this was a New Orleans post. Which actually makes a lot of sense ✨ So amazing

It's a work of art ! Such amazing detail

To go back in time and visit this space would be phenomenal

This has nothing to do with the post but man I'm ready for another new album!! The mini one we got last year was fantastic 💜💜💜💜

Really Looks Spooky To Me*

That place was glorious. I hate it didn't survive.

That an amazing looking place

So cool! That instantly reminds me of one of those typical old restaurants of the Harz (Sachsen-Anhalt). It was in Wernigerode I believe. There were witches and devils hanging from the ceiling or sitting on the roof beams, and staring at you while you tried to eat and drink. xD Unfortunately, I don't find any pics of it in the internet. Will apparently have to ask my mom for its correct name...

Amazing. That’s so awesome.

Love their music

I love your album that came out in 2010 that was all about vampires. Used it at the haunted house I helped out at for Halloween. :)

Now that something awesome to visit

That devil face doorway actually shows up in a LOT of haunted attractions around the Jersey Shore. LOL.

That third picture makes me see this.
