In it then continues on to Asheville, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Birmingham, New Orleans, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago and Detroit before concluding at Rochester, NY’s Bug Jar.

Pile began in 2005 as a solo project for lead singer and guitarist Ricky McGuire before evolving into the quartet it is now in 2010. The group’s ramshackle brand of post-punk created a sensation in the local Boston indie music scene. After self-releasing three very good and very eclectic rock albums, the got the band signed with the renowned DIY record label Exploding in Sound. In 2015, the band released their breakthrough fifth record, Your Better Than This, to widespread critical acclaim.

A Hairshirt of Purpose is due out March 31.
