Ahead of the release of their soundtrack to the most anticipated game of the year ‘No Man’s Sky’, noisy instrumental 4 piece 65daysofstatic have shared the full artwork for the CD and vinyl versions of ’No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe’created by long term collaborator Caspar Newbolt (Version Industries) who has worked on previous 65daysofstatic albums such as ‘Wild Light’ and ‘We Were Exploding Away’
The band have also announced that they will be supported on the European run of their ‘No Man’s Sky’ world tour by Thought Forms, a band that veer between two opposites
from brisk scuzzy American garage rock to brutal anguished noise constructions of ethereal psychedelic doom.
As well as the game’s official soundtrack, ’No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe’ is very much a new 65daysofstatic record, comprising 10 original new songs that make up the official soundtrack along with an additional collection of soundscapes and sound design, exclusive to this release. Grand in ambition, the album presents a restless, overwhelming experience, both a natural progression from previous album ‘Wild Light’ and an attempt to answer the question, ‘what does forever sound like?’.
Recorded at Chapel Studios, Lincolnshire with co-producer Dave Sanderson (Reverend & the Makers), and mixed at Castle of Doom, Glasgow by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian) in early 2015, ‘No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe’ will be released by Laced Records.
No Man’s Sky’s procedurally generated universe is unlike anything yet seen in the gaming world, and 65daysofstatic’s sonic assault is equally ambitious. The music, along with a vast library of raw audio comprised of loops, sound textures and melody is currently being fed into the game’s unique music engine, effectively creating a self-generating soundtrack to infinity.
The album will be available on the following formats and is available for pre-order through the Laced Records web-store now: http://www.lacedrecords.com
