Methyl Ethel - New UK Show
Methyl Ethel : New UK Show
1st August 2017

Ahead of their European festival shows next month, Methyl Ethel – the brainchild of musical polymath Jake Webb - have added a last-minute London show at the Shacklewell Arms.  The east London venue played host to Methyl Ethel’s debut UK show – just last year in the Spring of 2016 – and Webb will return there on Tuesday 15th August, alongside Thom Stewart (bass), Chris Wright (drums) and Hamish Rahn (guitar, keyboards).  Tickets for this intimate show are now on sale via Songkick and Dice.

12th - Boardmasters, Cornwall, UK [TICKETS]
15th – Shacklewell Arms, London, UK [TICKETS]
17th – Rotondes, Luxembourg, Luxembourg [TICKETS]
18th – Lowlands Festival, The Netherlands [TICKETS]
20th – Green Man Festival 2017, Brecon Beacons, UK [TICKETS]

In their native Australia, Methyl Ethel have been making waves, selling out every headline show in the country since 2016 and topping the album and singles charts (for ‘Ubu’ and ‘Drink Wine’).  The quartet will be guests of Lauren Laverne on her 6Music mid-morning show on the day of their Shacklewell Arms show.  Earlier this summer Methyl Ethel were invited by Huw Stephens to record a BBC Radio 1 session at the legendary Maida Vale studios which aired recently. Listen back to the live renditions of ‘Drink Wine’, ‘Ubu’, ‘No. 28’, ‘Groundswell’ and ‘L’Heure des Sorcières’ via the BBC iPlayer here.
