Brooklyn indie-rock band A Great Big Pile of Leaves was founded by guitarist/singer Pete Weiland and drummer Tyler Soucy, Connecticut natives who moved to New York in 2007. Their sound is rooted in both breezy classic indie pop and '90s American underground acts.
The duo self-produced and self-released two EPs, The Fiery Works Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 between 2007 and 2009. After the release of these recordings, they expanded to include bass player Tucker Yaro. In 2010, they completed their first full-length album Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?, which they supported by touring with The Appleseed Cast, Saves The Day, Say Anything, Now, Now, Hellogoodbye and more.
They went on to release several acoustic EPs before their second full-length, You're Always on My Mind, materialized in 2013, followed by tours with the likes of The Front Bottoms, Motion City Soundtrack, mewithoutYou, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Rozwell Kid, and Prawn.
As of 2019, A Great Big Pile of Leaves are building their own recording studio in Connecticut and will soon begin recording their third full-length record.
