The Exiles track Hollywood Lies from the Harraby band’s debut album Universal Suffering features in a pivotal scene in director Billy O’Brien’s big screen adaptation of Dan Wells’s critically acclaimed novel I Am Not A Serial Killer. The movie premieres on Sunday 13 March in Austin, Texas, as part of SXSW festival. Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Max Records (Where the Wild Things Are) and Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad) star in the film, which charts the story of a teenage boy hunting for a supernatural serial killer in his snowbound Midwestern town.
