Hear Pile’s Updated Version Of ‘My Employer’

Punk rock band Pile recently shared a heavier version of their single “My Employer,” which originally appeared on their 2019 album Green and Gray.

The new version is closer to how the band performs the track live as vocalist and guitarist Rick Maguire explains:

“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.”
