Boston Sludge act Kal Marks have shared a music video for their song “Coffee.” The song is the epic seven minute sludge banger from their album Life Is Alright, Everybody Dies. The record was released in February via Midnight Werewolf Records and Exploding In Sounds. The song is a journey within itself, full of dynamic, heavy explosions that help give the song distinct builds and climaxes to jam out with. The song details the vivid destructions that come with relationships, even if they seem to have a positive notion within them.

Directed by Sheree Chen, “Coffee” captures both the pain and joy that come together with the struggles of commitment. “Coffee” is a love song (at least in the world of Kal Marks), and the video picks up on the notion that relationships are fragile and require work, in time with the song’s crushing rhythms, massive riffs, and Carl Shane’s unique howl. Kal Marks have also announced a string of tour dates to back Life Is Alright, Everybody Dies this fall.
