Methyl Ethel Announces North American dates

Methyl Ethel Announces North American dates, starting October 1st in Calgary.

Fresh off a run of dates in the UK and Europe, including appearances at Primavera Sound Festival, The Great Escape and London Calling, Methyl Ethel has announced their first major tour of North America this fall supporting Preoccupations. The tour will kick off in Calgary on October 1st.

Hailing from the remote fringes of Perth, Western Australia, linchpin Jake Webb started Methyl Ethel in 2013 as a way of getting his bedroom recordings out in the public domain. Like 4AD peers Grimes and Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound), Oh Inhuman Spectacle was crafted in isolation where Webb wrote, played and recorded everything, with fellow Perth residents Thom Stewart (bass) and Chris Wright (drums) recruited to bring the songs to life on stage. The band is currently working on their next record due out in 2017.
