Modern Rituals

The band’s name speaks volumes to most, and to the rest… it soon will. Earning the reputation of “your favourite band’s favourite band,” the quartet (Rick Maguire, Kris Kuss, Matt Connery, and Matt Becker) have been setting the DIY indie punk scene ablaze since 2009, developing a unanimously praised back catalogue in the process and a legion of diehard fans throughout the entire country and abroad. The band have toured heavily over the years, playing all ages venues and basements in the spirit of DIY culture with peers Speedy Ortiz, Big Ups, LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Krill, and more.

Pile started to work on You’re Better Than This at Omaha’s Another Recording Company with producer Ben Brodin. The result of those sessions is Pile at their absolute finest, a perfect mix of the band’s ferocious and gentle sides, an undeniably explosive record that twists and convulses with unexpected turns at every corner. Pile‘s exceptional ability to warp through loud-soft-loud dynamics is on full display, forgoing predictable song structures and triumphantly crushing any false sense of security. You’re Better Than This is comforting at one moment and brutal the next, ripping through influences that include post-punk, noise rock, folk song-writing, and a particularly colossal take on indie rock.

After a ferocious debut London show last year, it is with great pleasure that we welcome back the undisputed heroes of Boston’s burgeoning indie rock scene, Pile, this time to the 100 Club in November.

Brunch the band not the meal. They are a 4-piece London DIY band formed in early 2014.

“Their sound is assertively crisp and well-planned, featuring melodies and repetitions reminiscent of pop music as well as noisy riffs and offbeat, alternative lyrics.” – Impose Magazine

Modern Rituals
London trio Modern Rituals – featuring ex-members of The Long Haul – release new EP 'Stranger Culture' in May of this year with a re-release in August on Hail Hail Records.

Drawing to mind the drawling, sick-to-the-stomach tones of Protomartyr and their ilk, but wrapped up in a direct hit of punk-rock immediacy, it’s an exciting next step from the London group. - DIY Magazine.
