FX has finally released the first official teaser trailer for “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” in addition to announcing the premiere date. The above snippet doesn’t offer any details, but it does provide the awesome scariness we’ve all come to know and love from each season’s series of teasers.

On the YouTube account, the caption for this video reads, “Step right up, the show is about to begin …”, which suddenly made us wish the “AHS: Freak Show” creators would find a way to use the 1973 Emerson, Lake and Palmer song “Karn Evil 9” in a teaser trailer. It could not be more perfect for this season of “AHS” — we’ve embedded it for you below in case you’re unfamiliar with it.

“American Horror Story: Freak Show” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
