Fetch is the seventh album by the Japanese noise rock band Melt-Banana. It was released on October 1, 2013, on CD, LP and digitally, it was the band's first album of new material in six years, after Bambi's Dilemma in 2007. The recording sessions for the album had to be postponed due to the Tohoku earthquake and the aftermath of the subsequent meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

The album was recorded as a duo, with the vocalist Yasuko Onuki and the guitarist Ichirou Agata opting to use synthesized backing music.[1] Melt-Banana have been performing live as a duo since mid-2012.[5] Following the release of the album, the band toured North America.[6]
