ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM
OUT FEBRUARY 15TH ON 4AD
NEW SINGLE & VIDEO FOR "REAL TIGHT" OUT TODAY
Today, Methyl Ethel have announced their new album, Triage will be released February 15th on 4AD. Today, they share the single from the forthcoming album along with the accompanying video for "Real Tight," directed by Matt Sav. Triage marks the Perth, Australia band's third album. It was written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb, mixed by Marta Salogni and mastered by Heba Kadry. The album was recorded in Webb's home studio in West Perth and is available for pre-order today.
With his thirtieth birthday, and the ceremonial cap on three records and three EP's, Webb felt a sense of closure in the making of Triage. Methyl Ethel has always been a surrealist outfit – a dark and obscured expression of life set to the backdrop of dream pop hooks. But Triage 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.

"[Jake Webb] is a loan glam rock astronaut floating deep into the outer reaches of his own mind." – Rolling Stone
"Meticulously crafted, sweet and palatable." – Consequence of Sound
