Pile

Boston indie rockers Pile released their newest album, Dripping, last year via Exploding In Sound Records. It's an impressive collection of wandering rock tunes led by some earnest nasally-turning-throaty vocals. If you missed it, you can stream the album its entirety and watch the video for its single, "Prom Song," below.

Pile's been playing some shows in their hometown area this month, and in February they'll head out on a short Northeast tour which hits NYC on February 23 at The Lab (224 Wyckoff Ave in Brooklyn) with Fax Holiday, Radiator King, and Beat Radio. It's an all ages show and admission is $5 at the door. After those dates end, they have a much longer tour in the works with their labelmates Fat History Month, which hits NYC on April 28 at Death by Audio.

Fat History Month will release their next album via Exploding In Sound Records this spring. They haven't revealed too much info about it, but they've got two of their demos on Exploding In Sound's 2012/2013 sampler, both of which have a '90s slacker rock thing going on. You can stream those tracks below.

A list of all dates, streams, and video below...

Fat History and Pile tour huh? Add one 'of Shit' in there and you'd have truth in advertising.

These guys are fat and ugly. They're never going to be rock stars. They should learn a trade.

only did a few myself, "Brian Farrelly". So there must be more than one person, and I am not getting paid, and I don't do it out of any hatred. I just get a laugh out of over the top political hyperbole getting inserted where its unexpected. Hope that clears things up for you, there is much for you to learn about humor and how to take a joke. good luck.
