Piers are pleased to premiere the first single from their forthcoming self-titled debut LP through Stereogum. "The Rook" is the first release since the band's 2013 breakthrough EP We Are The Map, and it showcases the band's progression from their earlier folk-tinged sound into rock territory. Piers, selected as one of The L Magazine's 8 Bands You Need To Hear in 2014, will self-release Piers later this year.
"Piers veer into noise-pop bombardment, sweeping choral arrangements, and low-key psych that sprawls into rave-up dance-punk. There's a pleasing lack of formality and a scrappy sense of possibility in this music... 'The Rook' suggests Piers will be an album worth hearing."
