After three years away, countless tours and the departure of founding guitarist Michael Ramirez, Cut Off Your Hands return with their sophomore LP, Hollow. "Our first record was pretty eclectic, both lyrically and sonically," says frontman Nick Johnston. "We were unsure of what we wanted to achieve with it, so we needed a producer like [former Suede guitarist] Bernard [Butler] to tie it all together. With 'Hollow', we knew exactly what we wanted to achieve."

Believe the man. Hollow works best when it exhumes the brittle textures and glacial melodies of Echo & the Bunnymen and exchanges the tightly wound pop-punk of their debut for a softer touch and slower pace. You've already seen their "Fooling No One" video and listened to album opener "You Should Do Better", now stream "Hollow" in its entirety below.

'Hollow' hits shelves July 15th via Speak and Spell/Inertia.
