Boston punks Pile are set to release their new album, Dripping, on October 23 via Exploding In Sound. They've revealed the track, "Prom Song," from that album on their bandcamp, and we've got another, "Bump a Grape," in this post, which you can stream below. I might just have Titus Andronicus in my head because I've been listening to their album all week, but I'm definitely getting similar punk 'n' roll vibes from this new Pile track to Titus' stuff, And like Patrick Stickles, Pile frontman Rick Maguire yearns with a raw, nasally yet throaty voice.

Pile will be supporting the new record with a tour that hits NYC on October 20 at The Paper Box in Brooklyn during CMJ and then again on October 30 at Muchmore's.

A list of all tour dates and the song stream are below.
