Around 22:00 in this video of Editors performing at Pinkpop 2014, frontsmith Tom Smith can be seen playing Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat Acoustic-Electric Guitar. The distinct marks on the headstock, as well as the shape and length of the pickguard confirm it is this particular model. It appears he has a capo on it on the 7th fret. The song he plays it on is Formaldehyde.
There is a difference, however, as Tom's acoustic looks to have dot inlays, whereas the Hellcat has skulls and "Hellcat" logos.

When asked about how he works with guitar pedals, Tom Smith says he mostly plays acoustic guitar and leaves the pedal work to the lead guitarist. However, he does mention liking and using the Boss RV?5 Digital Reverb Pedal: "...a pedal I always dig out is the Boss Digital Reverb pedal [RV-5], which has a modulated reverb setting which sounds like glass breaking, an icy, cold texture. That's been a recent addition to my live setting, as something that can be pulled out for dramatic effect."
