The song is off of the band's upcoming release "The Conscious Sedation," which is due out September 14th via Metal Blade Records. We'll have the exclusive full album stream coming up on Thursday before the release, but in the meantime, you can hear "Hollow" in the promotional video below.
Vocalist Miri Milman breaks down the lyrical content of "Hollow":
"This song is personal to me; it speaks of a person that suffers continuously yet doesn't have the courage, guts, or strength to change his/her situation and keeps on being stuck in this downward spiral.
"It is about the fear of changing something in your life for the better, the fear of taking that step which could make everything better. The song develops towards the person actually daring to take the step and seeing there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
"This is obviously the ballad of the record, the calm between the storm. We wanted to also add to the diversity of the record and not only have fast songs all over the record. While being a softer System Divide song; it still has a part that will crush your balls with a smile :) We hope you will all enjoy listening to it as much as we had writing it! METAL!!!"
