Ghoulish prints for Disco Bloodbath

Creative agency Them has curated an exhibition of horror-themed prints to celebrate the release of London club night Disco Bloodbath’s new album, Go Bump in the Night.

The prints were launched at an exhibition in Dalston earlier this month and are available to buy online. Contributing artists include Jimmy Turrell, Maria Sagun, Lukas Muellner, Timor D and Studio Pensom.

Them also designed the logo for the club night, which was set up in 2007. “After a meeting with the Disco Bloodbath team regarding their album launch, we thought an exhibition could draw more of a crowd for their launch night. We got in touch with artists and designers we’ve worked with before and advertised submissions through social media,” says creative director Dan Moscrop.

“All of Disco Bloodbath’s  previous artwork had been based around B Movie horror posters but the only brief [for the exhibition] was ‘Go Bump in the Night’, to give the artists as much flexibility as possible. We were really interested in what we would receive back – the final selection was whittled down from 57 entries and included screen prints on foil and live edge plastic, riso prints and even a hand-made lenticular,” he adds.

Them is also planning a follow-up exhibition later this year with a different theme, and is looking for artists to take part. For details, email submissions@them.co.uk.

Go Bump in the Night is released on Monday.
