Digital FORT Day 1 is now over, and this video has been removed from The FADER.

Perth-based art rock group Methyl Ethel will release a new EP, Hurts To Laugh, on April 10, but “Castigat Ridendo Mores” won’t appear on the band’s latest release. The standalone single is getting its world premiere at the top of the page for Digital FORT, courtesy of a live performance that lead singer Jake Webb recorded before and after sunset in the Western Australian bush this past weekend.
