For avant-garde outfit HMLTD music isn't meant to make you comfortable. The London-based sextet's live shows are a spectacle of B-movie gore and S&M strutting. Imagine a group of Hammer Horror surgeons undertaking an autopsy on the underbelly of popular culture, and you get close to what pop's outré outsiders are up to.

Enter filmmaker Joseph Delaney and producers LEZ Creative, who followed the band on a helter-skelter tour of the UK in order to create this surreal document of a group of artists for whom every day is Halloween.
