Ethyline was an American alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois consisting of Matt Bessemer (vocals), Adam White (guitar), Dave McClean (guitar), Mike Hootenstrat (bass), and Brian Vermin/ George Rice (drums).
The band was formed by members of the band Sludgeworth, but chose a more melodic sound as demonstrated on their debut album, Jitters. Their music reached a European audience by way of the German released compilation album Piranha - Music That Bites! Vol.2 on the record label Virgin. The song 'Wings' was featured on this compilation and the film Masterminds with Patrick Stewart and has since gone some way to leave a legacy for the band. After the release of their debut album Jitters they toured Europe in September 1999 visiting the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
Their second album Long Gone was released on Wild West/ Fluid Recordings and songs were featured in Party of Five,Dawson's Creek,Dangerous Minds, Gross Pointe, The Sopranos episode Denial, Anger, Acceptance, and the movie Whiteboyz.
