Premiere: Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux - Dead As A Bone

Rehearsal room as torture chamber...

It opens with a pair of feet, strapped against a chair by silver industrial tape.

The camera pans up, to reveal a man - an ordinary man, dressed for office work - held in 'Reservoir Dogs' meets 'Saw' scenario.

In front of him lies a bomb, the timer set to three minutes. Then the song begins. Becoming trapped in the rehearsal room is a common scenario, but few have dared to take this premise as far as Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux.

But then, perhaps that's to be expected: the band thrive on taking things that bit further, with their unhinged (undead?) approach cutting a swathe through London's live scene.

New cut 'Dead As A Bone' is unrelenting psychobilly, with the emphasis on the psychotic. With their rehearsal room as torture chamber schtick, this new video takes their unholy rampage to an entirely new level.

Watch it now.
