About Midnight Danger:
Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, rising star Midnight Danger brings an electrifying fusion of influences to the music scene. Conceived by producer and guitarist Chris Young in late 2015, this music endeavor draws inspiration mainly from synthwave music, ’80s metal, and classic horror. Midnight Danger crafts a nostalgic soundtrack journey with pulsating synthesizers, driving rhythms, and a cinematic essence that instantly transports listeners back to the era of neon lights, arcade games, and VHS tapes. While evoking a sense of nostalgia for the 1980s, their tracks also add modern production techniques to create a unique fusion of old and new.

Setting the stage alight both musically and visually, Midnight Danger’s live performances are an enthralling spectacle that marries their music to a synchronized light show engaging the audience in a theatrical like horror movie experience.

In January 2018, the debut album Malignant Force was released through NRW Records, instantly carving its mark on the synthwave landscape. The album rapidly soared in popularity, with vinyl and cassette editions selling out in a flash and accumulating a staggering 4.5 million streams on Spotify.

The release catapulted Midnight Danger in the synthwave/retrowave movement and resulted in numerous live performances over Europe and South America alongside some of the main artists on the genre, including also an unforgettable appearance at São Paulo’s Horror Expo alongside revered metal acts like Therion and Deathstars.

The journey continued with a cascade of singles, collaborations, and contributions, such as being featured in the soundtrack of the documentary In Search of Darkness, a comprehensive tribute to ’80s horror. The sophomore album Chapter 2: Endless Nightmare, unleashed in August 2020, made waves by capturing the essence of synthwave/darksynth reaching best-selling charts on both Bandcamp and iTunes. The album has currently over 1.3 million streams on Spotify. The tracks “Endless Nightmare” and “To the Shadows and Back” were elevated further through music videos that showcased the enigmatic Scary Dee on drums – an undead persona that takes center stage in Midnight Danger’s live performances.

The saga continued with the release of Nights at Lake Milsen in November 2021, a groundbreaking work that saw collaboration with a legion of rock and metal icons spanning four generations. Guitarists Kane Roberts (Alice Cooper), Rafael Bittencourt (Angra), Martin Sweet (Crashdïet), Sonia Anubis (ex-Crypta), singer Danny Rexon (Crazy Lixx), and Australian saxophonist Max Cruise, lent their virtuosity to this remarkable endeavor. The original graphic novel titled Chapter 1: The Malignant Force is included in the vinyl edition of the album, showing the background story that connects all of Midnight Danger’s albums.

With three full-length albums, numerous singles, and a trail of sold-out physical albums, Midnight Danger’s music has resonated worldwide, garnering millions of plays and streams. Also renowned for captivating live performances, in 2022 Midnight Danger returned to the stage following a three-year hiatus, reaffirming their commitment to thrilling the fans and continuing to illuminate the synthwave landscape. Now, marking a significant milestone, Midnight Danger makes their debut in the United States, showcasing a setlist that features songs that trace their entire career.
