Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has shared some details about band’s upcoming album in an Instagram Story later today.
“Should I drop a new song? Maybe ‘Turn It Up B*tch‘ or ‘Goodbye‘? Hmm, or should I just drop the whole new album, all 12 songs. What do you think?”, Durst offered.
Earlier this year, guitarist Wes Borland said that band “probably have 35 songs recorded instrumentally.”
“We’ve probably, in the last 10 years, been in the studio to try and complete the record, I wanna say, seven times, to different studios,” Borland said. “And we’ve been working on stuff, working on stuff, working on stuff. And Fred has been consistently kind of unsatisfied with where vision is, I guess.
“So we’ve released singles — like we did ‘Ready To Go’, and we did another single called ‘Endless Slaughter’ that we put out… We probably have 35 songs recorded instrumentally, and he’s done vocals on them and then thrown the vocals away — done vocals and then [gone], ‘F*ck this,’ [and] thrown it away. So I think he’s finally at the point now where he’s gonna pick a set of these songs that he’s finally cool with and finish ’em and we’re gonna finish the record. So, fingers crossed.”
On a possible timeline for the completion of the new LIMP BIZKIT album, Wes said: “I’m not in charge of Fred‘s vocals… I’m way done with my parts on the record. I’m sure I’ll go back in and play a little bit more after. But it’s f*cking Fred Durst. He went from being a darling to everybody’s most hated person in the world. We broke up as a band. He’s tried to find his footing, I think, on a bunch of these songs. He’s so talented, and I love him so much as a brother, but if he’s not ready to do it, he’s not ready to do it… My whole thing is I force things, but I’m happy to make mistakes and get embarrassed and go, ‘Oh, I shouldn’t have done that.’
“But I just like to put stuff out,” Borland added. “But he’s a perfectionist, so we’ll see when he’s ready to do it. I doubt it’ll be called ‘Stampede Of The Disco Elephants’ at that point. I will definitely say that the riffs and the music, it’s the best stuff I’ve ever done as a musician, I think. I’m so pleased with the direction the music went, and I love what we did as a band. And I’ve heard a bunch of his, sort of, demoed vocals over the stuff, and they’re great. So I have no doubt that he’s gonna come and bring it and it’s gonna be a great record.”
