Pile releasing a new LP, touring, playing shows w/ Leapling, Krill and Solids (who are also touring)

Pile

Boston post-hardcore band Pile are releasing You’re Better Than This, the followup to 2012’s very good Dripping, on March 3 via Exploding In Sound. No music’s been released from that yet, but in the meantime you can revisit their 2014 single, “Special Snowflakes,” below. That’s the clown artwork that the LP artwork is based on, above.

The band recently successfully funded their new van (though there’s still 11 days left to donate if you wanna give them extra help and get some of the cool rewards), which means they’re ready to hit the road for their tour which begins this weekend. The first date is in NYC on Saturday (1/10) at Shea Stadium with Krill (who also have a new LP coming on EIS), Baked and Swings ($8 at the door). Pile return to NYC on February 25 at Palisades with Canadian rockers Solids, EIS labelmates Leapling and Radiator King (ticket info TBA). After that, they play SXSW and have a lot of TBA dates, including a TBA Brooklyn show on 4/28. All dates are listed below.

For Solids, that Palisades show is part of a tour which includes another NYC show on February 26 at Cake Shop with Cutters and more TBA. All of their dates are listed below.

Leapling also play NYC sooner, opening for Landlady at Union Pool on January 21 with Heaven For Real (tickets). Their new record, Vacant Page, comes out via EIS/Inflated on February 10. You can stream “Crooked” from that LP, with that Pile track, the recent single from Krill’s upcoming LP, and lists of dates, below…
