One year after Odds And Ends, American Boston-based band Pile announced the release of a new album. Green and Gray is out on May 3rd via Exploding In Sound. They shared the first excerpt “Bruxist Grin“. “I wrote “Bruxist Grin” when I was getting ready to move,” frontman Rick Maguire explains. “I’d been showing people my place to take my apartment, and getting my life together to go make this record to then move two days after the session. It was a super tight timeline and I went to bed and had a panic attack.
I hadn’t had one before, and I thought it came on kind of like a psychedelic experience, like when the acid starts to kick in and it’s like ‘oh, here we go.’ My heart was pounding and I didn’t know what was happening but I knew that there was a lot about my current way of living that was about to change and I assume it was just my body reacting to all of it. It was pitch black, and I perceived looking at myself and my position to the rest of the world, physically, psychologically and spiritually, and feeling this overwhelming anxiety, and that’s what the song’s about.”
