We already posted one song from Rocky Votolato‘s upcoming eighth album and first for No Sleep, Hospital Handshakes, and now the title track is premiering in this post. Like the previous single, it’s a departure from the acoustic folk songs often associated with Rocky’s solo material, and instead has him taking on full-band mid-tempo indie rock. Pianos, distorted guitars and more flesh out the anthemic song, as you can hear for yourself below. The album’s out in two weeks (4/21), and can be pre-ordered now.

Rocky’s currently on his living room tour, having already hit NYC last week (4/2) at Suburbia. Ticket info for most upcoming shows here. All dates are listed below.
