Slash writes soundtrack for Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights

Slash has written an original music soundtrack for Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights' new 3D maze, “Clowns 3D Music by Slash.”

Set to open September 19th, the new haunted attraction unmasks the psychological disorder known as Coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.

The 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. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction.

“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.”

The Universal Studios attraction will open three days after the September 16th release of Slash’s third album, “World On Fire.”

The project once again sees the guitarist working with his touring band, Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, and producer Michael Baskette.

The group is currently on the road across North America with Aerosmith as part of the Let Rock Rule tour, which wraps up September 9 in Clarkston, Michigan.
