Boston, MA’s Pile have released “Texas,” the lead single from their upcoming fifth full-length album, A Hairshirt of Purpose. The song is nothing short of a ruckus, with pounding drums taking much of the mix and shaking people to their core. The guitars are erratic, finding spaces to rest in while at the same time bouncing between the sonic beatdown. While the sound is frantic and thick
When asked, Pile vocalist/guitarist Rick Maguire said A Hairshirt of Purpose is an album about “the joys of solitude” and “the inescapable selfishness of every action.” Pile balance their ferocious tendencies with moments of beauty, building tension with release never too far behind.
A Hairshirt of Purpose is available for pre-order now and due out March 31st via Exploding In Sound Records.
