--------------- This show has already SOLD OUT! ---------------

We are beyond excited to announce the Australian album tour for METHYL ETHEL. Spanning the month of May, the album tour will showcase brand new music from forthcoming record 'Everything Is Forgotten', which will be released on Friday, March 03 via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.

To mark today's announcement, the band have shared a new album track ‘L’Heure des Sorcières.’ Meaning ‘The Witches' Hour’ in French, the track demonstrates a side of the band that is dark and fantastical, Webb's filtered vocal descending low into the mix to erupt soaring over a surging, foreboding arrangement. It's an arrangement that heralds a band transformed. With the addition of a keyboard player to the live set up, Methyl Ethel return to the stage, equipped with the same charisma, but having honed in on the sonic heights reached on 'Everything Is Forgotten'.

'Everything Is Forgotten' is a vivid, compelling and mysterious creature, all sinewy, curvaceous pop nuggets and enigmatic currents. Written and recorded by Perth-based frontman Jake Webb, the album was brought to life by acclaimed British producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals). As demonstrated by last year’s single ‘No. 28’, the pair’s collaboration has infused Methyl Ethel’s shoegaze dream-pop palate with electronic and polyrhythmic flourishes, allowing Webb’s keening, gender-fluid vocals and searing poetry to take centre stage. Second single ‘Ubu’, a frenetic pop song inspired by Alfred Jarry’s surrealist play Ubu Roi, is a self-portrait of self-flagellation and guilt, its companion video, directed by Paxi, takes some of its absurdist cues from Jarry.

After already selling out all their shows on the just finished tour, the band will spend March and April on their world tour across Europe and North America. Come May, Methyl Ethel will return to home soil, playing shows in Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane with 'Everything Is Forgotten' fully realised as a live experience!
