Triage, the third album by Methyl Ethel. Written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb, mixed by Marta Salogni and mastered by Heba Kadry, Triage was recorded in Webb’s home studio in West Perth, Australia.

With the creation of this album, 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 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 which expands to a five-piece live band that includes Thom Stewart, Chris Wright, Lyndon Blue and Jacob Diamond.   Methyl Ethel has enjoyed phenomenal successes over the last year.  In Australia, ‘Ubu’ (the hit single from second album Everything Is Forgotten) became an ARIA Accredited Gold single .  The band has clocked up over 46 million streams on Spotify alone and sold out shows in Australia and the UK.

Methyl Ethel will release their third album “Triage” on Friday 15th February 2019.

The album was written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb, 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.

The most impressive thing about Jake Webb’s musical project, Methyl Ethel, is how consistent the quality of music is. Have you ever listened to a Methyl Ethel song you didn’t like? Think about it. Also, while you’re thinking, how ’bout the fact that no one’s ever seen Nicholas Cage and Marilyn Manson in the same room at the same time? Exactly. ‘Scream Whole’ is the first single off Methyl Ethel’s upcoming record, Triage, out Friday 15th February, 2019.

The musical project of Jake Webb, 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 than their previous two – featuring singles ‘Scream Whole’ and ‘Real Tight’, it explores the notion of coming of age, only to reference it for the snapshots and passing memories that it has become. enjoying phenomenal successes over the last few years, the single ‘Ubu’ was recently accredited gold in Australia , and their tour dates in Australia and the UK since 2016 have all been sell outs.

The band released a brand new single on Friday called ‘Real Tight’. Their new album Triage will be out next year!

It’s coming on black, white and blue vinyl + cassette tape + CD + digitally!, There are also some extra special gifts like free t-shirts and signed Record Store Day 7″s if you pre-order vinyl from special outlets.
