Midnight Opera is the glam rock band of four friends from Dallas, TX. Mixing ominous art pop with opulent set design and deranged alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work. They take elements from carpentry to choreography to costume design, and their live shows have come to serve as a parallel universe for the members to act out alternate identities and face the terror of vulnerability with their audiences.
The band spent the past year touring the release of their debut album The Mesmerist, peppering in sessions with Daytrotter and HearHere Presents, sharing stages with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Adanowsky, and receiving coverage from the likes of Brooklyn Vegan and Tiny Mix Tapes, among others. Currently, they are in the studio at work on their second album about creatures, preachers, and sexually harassing grim reapers.
