Boston punk powerhouses Pile released their album Green and Gray earlier this year, earning them more devotion and praise from fans of knotty and dense alt-rock. They'll be bringing the sounds of their new album to the UK and Europe next September, but ahead of that have shared an alternate version of album highlight 'My Employer'.

Rick Maguire says "This is the version of the song that generally sits better with the rest of our live set. Because I still feel strongly about the song's sentiment, I really appreciate that it's form carries some dynamic versatility."

On Green and Gray 'My Employer' functions as a subdued, swaying track that bridges the gap between the body of the album and the epic final suite. The new version of the track stands on its own as a fanged and thumping rocker, wreathed in snarling feedback. Here we get a song that carries thew same cutting regret, but driven with more sonic anger - and you can understand why that would work better in the live space.
