Just a short time after announcing his decision to sign with No Sleep Records, Rocky Votolato has released the first single off his highly-anticipated new album.

Premiering on Stereogum earlier today, “The Hereafter” is a song that could only be written by someone whose led a truly interesting life. It oozes with a lifetime’s worth of experience having been boiled down to a four-minute song in the best possible way, with images of broken teeth, scraped hands, and weary eyes littered throughout. If Rocky were to try and encapsulate his career with a single song, this would no doubt be it. You can stream the track below.

“The Hereafter,” just like every song on Rocky’s upcoming album Hospital Handshakes, was produced by former Death Cab guitarist/producer Chris Walla and recorded at his Seattle studio. The album hits stores April 21. Click here for pre-order options.
