Pile reveal Spring tour and single

Pile announce Spring tour dates, share new track "Texas"

Pile have announced a Spring tour. Earlier this month the band released “Texas,” the lead single from their forthcoming release, A Hairshirt of Purpose. Pile, kick off their tour on March 2nd in Cambridge, MA

A Hairshirt of Purpose was recorded at home in Boston at The Record Co. the studio’s big windows and close proximity marked a change from the band’s previous recordings. Pile vocalist/guitarist Rick Maguire shared, “we were at home and we could see the sun, and I think both of those things lent themselves to a more focused and deliberate record.”

Pile have earned their following from years of DIY touring and a humble approach to uncompromising performances. Never afraid to switch styles, Pile’s music has morphed over the years, embracing both the ferocious and gentle sides of punk, indie, folk, and noise rock, delivering their own brand of gnarled intensity. Since coming together as a full band in 2009, Pile have toured as much as their lives collectively allow, playing over 600 shows spread out over the US, Canada, UK and Europe.
