Total Slacker – “Sometimes You Gotta Die” Video

We premiered Total Slacker’s “Sometimes You Gotta Die” earlier this month, a song that was already creepy enough on its own without a video. Fortunately the band put together this slasher-flick ode right on Halloween. It’s not as gory as you’d think though, and actually takes sort of a more impressionistic approach to young people getting murdered in the woods. It’s less about plot and kills, and more about just capturing that awful tension and darkness, in other words it’s a perfect pairing with the song. Watch the Norris Guncheon-directed video below and look for their album next year.

Slip Away is out 2/11 on Black Bell Records.
