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