Methyl Ethel Release New Album 'Triage'
Australian pscyhe-pop band Methyl Ethel release their remarkable new album Triagetoday on 4AD. Written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb, and recorded in his home studio, Triage marks the Perth, Australia band's third album. Buy the album HERE.
With the creation of Triage, Webb felt a sense of closure - completing the triptych of his three releases. Methyl Ethel has always been a surrealist outfit - a dark and obscured expression of life set to the backdrop of dream pop hooks. But this is a more reflective album - one that explores the notion of coming of age, only to reference it for the snapshots and passing memories that it has become.
Methyl Ethel is the musical project of Jake Webb. As a live band it expands to a five piece and includes Thom Stewart, Chris Wright, Lyndon Blue and Jacob Diamond. Methyl Ethel has enjoyed phenomenal successes over the last years. In their home country of Australia, 'Ubu' became an ARIA Accredited Gold single earlier this year off the back of landing at #4 in triple j's 2017 Hottest 100. The band have clocked up over 25 million Spotify streams alone and all of their tour dates in Australia and the UK since 2016 have sold out.
Methyl Ethel have announced a North American tour in March 2019. Highlights include The Echo in Los Angeles on March 19th and Elsewhere in Brooklyn on March 29th. Visit methylethel.com for more details.
