The Membranes released their first album in 26 years with the critically acclaimed Dark Matter/Dark Energy (2015). The album received great reviews all over the world and lots of radio play. An ambitious album, it was sparked by a meeting between John Robb and the head of the CERN project which inspired the songs about the universe, life and death with the death of Robb's father feeding into the songs. Many fellow musicians and authors also called it their album of the year from author Ian Rankin to Mark Lanegan to the Manic Street Preachers. The Membranes decided on another ambitious project - to remix the whole of the album with special guests. The result is Inner Space/Outer Space - a re-envisioning of the whole album. Remixes by: Manic Street Preachers, Phillip Boa, Mark Lanegan, Clint Mansell, Godflesh, Tunnelmental Assembly, Black Yoga Collective, Reverend And The Makers, Keith Levene, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Youth from Killing Joke, Harry Stafford from Inca Babies, Therapy, In The Nursery, Bartak and Einsturzende Neubauten.
