Car Seat Headrest isn't holding back on their new song "Hollywood," which arrived today with a video directed by Sabrina Nichols.

The song is a preview of the band's upcoming album Making a Door Less Open, which will be out May 1 via Matador Records.

"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,” says frontman Will Toledo, whose alter ego Trait appears in the video in animated form. "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."
