Official press release:

Today, Philadelphia emo mathcore outfit Kaonashi shared a new music video for their harrowing track "Coffee & Conversation" via a premiere on The Noise. Taken off the band's 2018 EP, Why Did You Do It?, the clip dives deeper into the story of their three concept characters - manic-depressive high school student Jamie, Morgan the bully, and love interest Casey - as they sift through the throes of Lemon House High.

Directed and filmed by The Contortionist vocalist Michael Lessard, the video marks the last chapter of Why Did You Do It?, but it is not the last fans will see of the story of Lemon House High. The band are currently working on their debut full-length album, which will follow Jamie and the others through a new perspective, set for release on Equal Vision Records. In the meantime, the band has been keeping busy connecting through the world of gaming, recently performing virtually on Minecraft festival Block By Block West. as well as starting their own Discord channel. You can watch the video for "Coffee & Conversation" here now and purchase Why Did You Do It? via Unbeaten Records.





On the video, Kaonashi told The Noise: "This video is a prequel to the music video we had put out for "5 Year Plan" a while back. It sets the stage and shines a light on the dynamic between Jamie, Casey, and Morgan; our characters in our story. "Coffee & Conversation" is basically a love song, so we wanted the videos to represent the relationship issues within the story. If you pay attention in the video, it can connect some dots for you in our story."
