Boston’s Pile haven’t released anything in the way of new music since last January’s “Special Snowflakes” 7-inch. That changes this March with the release of the quartet’s latest full-length LP, You’re Better Than This.
Based on the album’s first track, “#2 Hit Single”, Pile proves to be just as noisy and energetic as ever. Launching with a barrage of pulverizing power chords, the song expands halfway through, with wacky harmonies and manic percussion really augmenting all that aural aggression. The result is a track that’s neither punk nor metal nor garage, but simply a joyful exercise in raising a little ruckus. Listen in below.
You’re Better Than This is due out March 3rd via Exploding In Sound.
