Car Seat Headrest will release their new album Making A Door Less Open on May 1st via Matador Records.

Back in February, we got our first taste of the album with “Can’t Cool Me Down” and the band has released another new song from the album today with “Hollywood.”

The track has an appropriate summer-sounding West Coast influence with a brash, hard-hitting raw rock form that may remind of some of the earlier work of California rockers like FIDLAR and Wavves – but of course with plenty of the expected Will Toledo CSH sound mixed in.

Find a description of the song from Toledo below:

This song is about Hollywood as a place where people go to make their fantasies come to life, and they end up exploiting other people and doing terrible things to maintain their fantasy. There’s this terror you’re going to lose the fantasy, and you’re going to have to face the facts, and some people will do anything to avoid facing that. It’s about that fear, and the pain of being subjugated to someone else’s fantasy against your will, and it’s all tied together under this banner of this physical location of Hollywood that we all know about and dream about, but none of us really want to think about what is going on behind the scenes there
