PILE release new song off their upcoming album!

The new song by PILE is called “#2 hit single” and comes from the band’s new album “You’re Better Than This”, to be released in March 2015 via Exploding in Sound Records! The new outing was recorded and mixed in October of 2014 by Ben Brodin in Studio B of Another Recording Company in Omaha, Nebraska, and mastered by Richard Marr at Galaxy Park Studios in Watertown, Massachusetts. The band recenty founded a new van in a highly successful crowdfunding campaign and will be doing a massive tour to support the record. See the details below.

“No band in town — or anywhere — is wrecking melodies as efficiently as this bizarro grunge-land band right now. On “So Hard,” Pile flirts with about a dozen shards of anthem-worthy melodies in about two minutes before retreating into a haze, and diving into the monolithic riffs of “The Browns.” The layered chords are thick with dissonance, the asymmetrical beats tumble like drum sets tossed down the stairs, and every wry vocal feeds on playground bipolar outbursts. Sounds like a recipe for force-fed weirdness, but these crooked moves unfold like clockwork.” – The Boston Globe

2012 was another landmark year for PILE, one of the Boston underground music scene’s greatest bands. Pile released their highly praised third album Dripping through Exploding In Sound Records in October, and the reaction was incredible. Hailed by the likes of The Needle Drop, The Boston Globe, Brooklyn Vegan, Dripping made a giant impact on their diehard audience as the hard touring band spent much of the year on the road in support of the record, including a six week national tour with Fat History Month. Dripping, now in its third vinyl pressing expanded on Pile’s post-punk/aggressive lo-fi indie sound into new and unpredictable directions.

The band isn’t wasting any time either. Following a busy Fall that includes opening for Obits, appearances at CMJ and The Fest, and a Southern tour with LVL UP, Pile will once again enter The Sex Dungeon studio (Speedy Ortiz, Fat History Month) to begin recording a new EP slated for release in early 2014 with plans to tour heavily throughout the year.

There’s nothing quite like seeing PILE live and the band has built a reputation throughout the country as one of the indie/post-punk scenes hardest working and most consistent bands. They have played shows with Metz, Obits, Speedy Ortiz, She Keeps Bees, Big Ups, Ovlov, Fat History Month, Skimask, and countless others since their inception as a band in 2009.
