Pile Announce ‘Hot Air Balloon’ EP, Unveil New Song

    Pile have announced the Hot Air Balloon EP, which lands on January 5 via Exploding in Sound. The five-track release was recorded during the sessions for the band’s 2023 LP All Fiction. Listen to the new single ‘The Birds Attacked My Hot Air Balloon’ and find the EP’s details below.

    “It started off as just an image that felt related to the music (floating peacefully through the air), but it naturally turned into a story of that peace being interrupted by fear and navel-gazing,” the band’s Rick Maguire said of the new track in a statement. “I usually use songwriting as a way to look for and work through whatever might need to process, and that’s how this one shook out.”
