Hailing from Perth, Australia, Methyl Ethel broke out into the global market less than a year ago. Their album Oh Inhuman Spectacle garnered the indie rock band a level of praise that begged the question "How do they follow that?!"

Demands on the band have extended beyond the recording process and super-prolific will to create. They've also been on the road, almost endlessly it seems. With a world tour about to take shape, with dates in Australia, Europe and Northern America on the horizon, ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Jake Webb during a soundcheck ahead of his London show. Time was brief, but mood was good and talk was all about forward motion, and the best way to learn new tricks.
