New Pile! New Pile!

The new Pile album is ready and will see a release next week, coinciding with the start of a spring tour (which, for now, has no established dates in Los Angeles, but is otherwise a good conclusion to the band's desperate fundraiser for a new van). As far as the record goes, it's a reliable, standard, angsty/grungy Pile record, and there's no epic star of the album in the style of last year's "Special Snowflakes," though "Tin Foil Hat" comes awfully close, dynamic with great buildup and fulfilling climax.

Rick Maguire still sounds grumpy.

Buy the sucker at Bandcamp starting March 3!

Edit: A-ha! They will in fact make a stop in Los Angeles! Visit them at Los Globos in Silverlake on March 29.
