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, etc. Pile started to work on You're Better Than This at Omaha's Another Recording Company with producer Ben Brodin.

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.
