Today Methyl Ethel, aka Australian songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Jake Webb, announce their forthcoming September North American tour and a headline London show at Electric Brixton on November 13.
Methyl Ethel — whose live incarnation includes Webb (vocals, guitar) plus band mates Thom Stewart (keys), Chris Wright (drums), Lyndon Blue (bass) and Jacob Diamond (guitar, vocals) — will visit cities and towns across the US and Canada, beginning in San Diego, CA on September 17 and ending in Allston, MA on September 30. Tickets for all shows, including London, will go on sale this Friday, June 21 at 10AM local time.
The announcement comes as Methyl Ethel enters the second week of the Triage Australian album tour — their biggest shows to date — joined by Oklahoma’s BRONCHO and Montreal’s Ada Lea. Perth, Melbourne and two shows in Brisbane have already sold out, with Sydney, Adelaide and a second Melbourne show selling fast. See below for details and tickets.
Methyl Ethel have had a momentous 2019, with the release of their third album Triage in February, followed by numerous sold out shows across North America, the UK and Europe.
Triage, which features the singles Scream Whole, Real Tight and Trip The Mains, is out now via 4AD (worldwide ex. ANZ) and Dot Dash/Remote Control (ANZ). It was written, produced and performed by Jake Webb, mixed by Marta Salogni and mastered by Heba Kadry. The album was recorded in Webb’s home studio in West Perth.
Triage is the third in a triptych of albums; following Methyl Ethel’s self-recorded and self-produced 2015 debut, Oh Inhuman Spectacle, and 2017 sophomore release Everything Is Forgotten, which was self-recorded and co-produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals).
Everything Is Forgotten was named Best Independent Album by the Australian Independent Record Labels Association and features the wildly popular, ARIA-accredited Gold single Ubu, which reached #4 on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2017 and has over 16.2 million streams on Spotify alone.
Methyl Ethel has enjoyed phenomenal successes over the past few years, amassing over 59.1 million streams on Spotify alone and delivering electrifying live shows wherever they go.
Last week, Methyl Ethel shared a live version of haunting album track ‘Post Blue’ for Pilerats’ PileTV. They will release a remix of BRONCHO’s track All Choked Up this week.
