Slash has found a new way to make fans scream: by teaming up with Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights.
The guitarist has come on board to write a score for their new maze, called Clowns 3D Music by Slash.
In a press release, Universal Studios Hollywood describes the maze, saying, “[t]he psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through ‘Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center,’ a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks.”
Halloween Horror Nights often teams with musicians to license its already-created material as a sonic accompaniment to their park, but this marks the first time they have worked with one to create an entirely original score.
“I’m a HUGE fan of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror,” said Slash. “I’ve been composing music for as long as I can remember and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this year’s event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze. I can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.”
Clowns 3D Music by Slash opens on Sept. 19.
