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...
'90s-loving Philly rockers The Weaks have a few upcoming shows scheduled, including one in NYC this weekend. They'll play new-ish Bushwick venue Palisades on Sunday (8/17), which is the the record release show for singer/songwriter Gregory Mendenz's Songs From A Stairwell EP, which Evan Bernard of The Weaks produced. The rest of the bill is Jenna Smith, Last Full Measure and Radiator King. There's a $5 donation at the door.
The Weaks also play The Fest, and their only other announced dates before that are opening two shows on the upcoming Joyce Manor tour. Though they won't be on the NYC show (9/15 at Bowery Ballroom), you won't have to travel too far to see that double bill. They're supporting them in Danbury, CT (tickets) and Cambridge, MA (tickets).
All dates are listed, with a stream of The Weaks' 2014 EP, The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And I Want To Die, below...

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.
