Slipknot’s Sid Wilson sampled “different moons around different planets” for upcoming album
“The development of this album happened [a] lot during touring,” he says (via Loudwire). “We have a portable studio setup 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,” Wilson explains. “So I actually dove into a lot of samples from different moons around different planets within our solar system to 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.”
In addition, Corey Taylor sat down with SiriusXM's Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk in February. He said it will probably be “another three months” until the project is released. If our calculations are correct, that means new Slipknot music is about two months out.
