Today, Methyl Ethel release their single, ‘Scream Whole.’ The track is the first new music from the Perth band since their second record Everything Is Forgotten was released in March 2017 on 4AD. ‘Scream Whole’ is a nimble art-rock cut, that lead singer Jake Webb describes as, “That cold sweat. That swollen throat. That sick feeling bubbling up from your guts.” The video was premiered via Consequence Of Sound. Watch / Stream here.
To celebrate the release of ‘Scream Whole’ Methyl Ethel have announced a U.S. tour in March 2019. Highlights include The Echo in Los Angeles on March 19th and Elsewhere in Brooklyn on March 29th. Visit methylethel.com for more details.
