Pile Share New Single Bruxist Grin From Upcoming Album 'Green And Gray'

Wednesday, 06 March 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Pile have released the first single from their upcoming new album, 'Green and Gray'.

The follow up to 2017's 'A Hairshirt Of Purpose' is set to arrive on May 3 via Exploding In Sound, while the driving Bruxist Grin will appeal to fans of catchy '90s rock. It was written about the Boston band's vocalist Rick Maguire's first panic attack. He said:

"I wrote Bruxist Grin when I was getting ready to move. 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."
