HMLTD, for­merly Happy Meal LTD, are the six-piece rock­ers who pushed bound­aries with their dar­ing the­atri­cal stage pres­ence and gen­der de­fy­ing looks. Their in-your-face per­sonas eas­ily cap­ti­vate au­di­ences and make them move to their ev­ery de­sire. Their live shows can only be com­pared to the Rocky Hor­ror Pic­ture Show on acid in a big top, with their mu­sic con­tin­u­ously break­ing the con­ven­tional rules of main­stream mu­sic and cat­e­gori­sa­tion, blend­ing psychedelia, elec­tron­ica, and post-punk in a gen­der-blurred man­ner. HMLTD are a breath of fresh air in the way that they give you not what you want, but what you need.
