Dark Matter/Dark Energy is the first Membranes album since 1989. It’s awash with their off-kilter mix of angular post-punk adventure, Krautrock-ish soundscapes and edginess.

The album is about the unviverse, life and death and is inspired by a conversation with Joe Incandela, the head of the CERN project about the Higgs Boson particle (Joe is on one of the tracks). It’s all about the life and death of the universe; during eecording, John Robb’s father died and the album is also about him.

The reviews of the album have been great…

‘One of the albums of the year. Very few rock bands, new or old, reformed or not have done an album as good as Dark Matter/Dark Energy in 2015.’ The Quietus

 An extraordinary comeback the NME
 
‘Exciting and angular, their first album for 26 years actually pretty good Q
 
‘Something quite special’ Drowned in Sound 9/10
 
‘There have been some brilliant and breathtaking “guitar records” this year. And this is one of them. Maybe, in terms of sheer breadth of ambition, courage, and devil-take-the-hindmost intelligence, it’s the best one’ Incendiary website 
 
‘The new Membranes album is epic, stunning and beautiful. Its strength is its diversity – ranging from angular noise to neo classical, from enveloping drones to ground breaking soundscapes to dark dub brilliance’  Classic Rock website Italy 10/10 album review
 
What an ace comeback after 26 years! Truly amazing adventure into sound.’ Subba Culture website
 
‘The new album is easily the best thing the Membranes have ever done. Bristling with a diverse and brilliant section of songs that are epic in scale it is not only the best thing the band have ever done but one of the albums of the year.’ LTW

The album is preceded by a Record Store Day 7” of the musical juggernaut that is ‘Do The Supernova’.
