Pile have announced their eighth studio album, All Fiction, is coming on February 17 via Exploding in Sound (pre-order). The album news comes with the release of lead single "Loops," a riff-heavy, dark indie-punk banger. Frontman Rick Maguire says of the song:
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. 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.
