Check out Orbital on 

NPR's New Music Friday

US Tour Dates To Be Announced Soon!

For immediate release: September 14, 2018 - Today, reunited brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll release their long-awaited LP 'Monsters Exist' (via ACP/Believe).

“Monsters Exist” is about the darkness and dampness inhibiting each of us, burgeoning in our daily routines and expressed through dissonant political inhibitions. But where there might be monsters, alter-egos, uncontrollable figures, there’s also resilience and hope that our world is bursting, yes, but in a new direction. Conflicted, torn by reflections on our society and political disparities, the album ultimately reaches ataraxis.

"Monsters Exist" features singles 'Tiny Foldable Cities', 'P.H.U.K.' (via COS Origins), Steve Dub's remix 'P.H.U.K.U' (via Mixmag) and "The End is Nigh".
