Pile, “#2 Hit Single”

Pile at the Austin Imposition

The New England overlords of rock ‘n’ fuckin’ roll are finally back with a new album after more than two years.  Following up the excellent 2012 LP, Dripping, Pile will release You’re Better Than This on March 3 via Exploding in Sound, from which the inappropriately-named first single is streaming below. “#2 Hit Single” starts off tense and manic before settling into Pile’s signature explosive guitar-fueled jams, resulting in another testament to Pile’s mastery of dynamics.  Thinking big picture, the song is an endless uphill battle to a climax that never comes, forcing us to sit on our toes for an album that should complete what only seems like a snippet of what’s in store.  Pile will be on the road (literally) every day from January 30 through May.
