Dot Dash and Remote Control Records are proud to announce Methyl Ethel will release their third album Triage on Friday 15th February 2019. Triage is released in Australia & New Zealand via Dot Dash and 4AD for the rest of the world.
Following on from instant classic 'Scream Whole', Methyl Ethel have shared new single 'Real Tight' along with the official video directed by Matt Sav. "'Real Tight' is one of the most pop-adjacent tracks he’s ever made, complete with a swelling chorus and some of the most achingly personal lyrics in the Methyl Ethel canon" said Noisey.
Triage was written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb. The album was recorded in Jake's home studio in West Perth and mixed at Mute Studio in London with Marta Salogni.
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. ‘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.
Triage will be available on black, white and blue vinyl, cassette tape, CD and digitally via download and DSPs. Links to pre-order all formats HERE OR check out the all new video for 'Real Tight' below:
