Pile stream forthcoming release

Boston, MA's Pile have shared the album stream for their forthcoming release, A Hairshirt of Purpose

Boston, MA’s Pile have shared the album stream for their forthcoming release, A Hairshirt of Purpose. The full-length comes out on March 31st via Exploding In Sound.

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.” There’s a warmth and radiant accessibility to be found throughout the album as the band experimented with different instruments (violin, viola, piano, organs, synths, banjo, etc) and a resounding push toward clarity. Pile balance their ferocious tendencies with moments of beauty, building tension with release never too far behind.
