THU, 11 JUNE
Undisputed heroes of Boston’s burgeoning indie rock scene, it is with great pleasure that we welcome the debut London show from Pile.
The band’s name speaks volumes to most, and to the rest… it soon will. Earning the reputation of “your favourite band’s favourite band,” the quartet (Rick Maguire, Kris Kuss, Matt Connery, and Matt Becker) have been setting the DIY indie punk scene ablaze since 2009, developing a unanimously praised back catalogue in the process and a legion of diehard fans throughout the entire country and abroad.
The band’s exceptional ability to warp through loud-soft-loud dynamics is on full display, forgoing predictable song structures and triumphantly crushing any false sense of security. Upcoming LP You’re Better Than This (out 2nd March via Fierce Panda) is comforting at one moment and brutal the next, ripping through influences that include post-punk, noise rock, folk songwriting, and a particularly colossal take on indie rock.
