The group are preparing to go on the road in support of their latest LP 'Velociraptor!' and wanted the famous puppeteers - whose most famous work is 'The Muppets' - to loan them some of their creations, particularly the characters from 1982 film 'The Dark Crystal', for the concerts.
Singer Tom said: "We've got a few tricks up our sleeve. I wanted to get Jim Henson's Creature Shop involved.
"We'd also like to hire the Skeksis from 'The Dark Crystal', get them onstage. The man-looking bird/dinosaur things. We just can't wait to take this f***ing dinosaur exhibition around the country and show people how powerful it is."
Although the band decided to name their album after a carnivorous dinosaur, Tom has confessed he is getting sick of talking about the prehistoric creatures, because he isn't that fascinated by them.
He told NME: "The truth is I'm actually f***ing sick of talking about dinosaurs. I'm really not that fanatical about it.
"It's f***ing interesting but I'm not a f***ing archaeologist, I'm a singer. I'm not going to go out looking for fossils - it's just not gonna happen. And the worst thing is, it's my fault for calling the album 'Velociraptor!'. I just thought it was a good word."
