Pile Announce New Album ‘All Fiction’, Share Video for New Song ‘Loops’

    Pile have announced their next album: All Fiction is set to arrive on February 17 via Exploding in Sound. Today, they’ve shared the album’s lead single, ‘Loops’, along with an accompanying video. Check it out below.

    “Throughout most of Pile’s existence, I’ve used songwriting as a means to work through personal issues and to express uncomfortable feelings in what I’ve perceived to be a healthy form of processing emotions,” frontman Rick Maguire explained in a press release. “While doing this I’ve also been working hard to create a career in writing music. The song ‘Loops’ is about the confusion I’ve experienced in the place where those two roads meet, and reflecting on whether what I’m creating is for personal growth or for personal gain has ended up leading to more questions than answers.”

    All Fiction is Pile’s eighth LP, following 2021’s Songs Known Together, Alone and In the Corners of a Sphere-Filled Room. “I’ve been trying to get out of what I think is ‘the rock band format,’ and I was also tired of what I saw as our identity as a band,” Maguire said. “The confusion about identity combined with existential anxiety led to exploring my imagination as a means of escape.”
