According to SLIPKNOT Dj Sid Wilson, the band’s forthcoming album is set to feature actual sounds from outer space.

Speaking with Loudwire, Wilson said he was using “samples from different moons around different planets” and was working on the record while SLIPKNOT were on tour.

“The development of this album happened to lot during touring. We have a portable studio set up with us, so a lot of ideas get put down in the studio room backstage.”

“In a way, we’re touring and touring and getting further and further from earth. So I actually dove into a lot of samples from different moons around different planets within our solar system to kind of translate the amount of travel we were doing, and also bringing it back down to earth for everyone to listen to. So my sound selection was a little more off-planet than normal.”
