Limp Bizkit Working on New Album
The last time we heard about Limp Bizkit, they signed to Cash Money, the label of Drake, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj, and were preparing to release a new single. An album, at the time, appeared to be a possibility, and band guitarist Wes Borland spoke with Revolver about their latest effort.
Currently, 14 songs have been outlined and assembled in some form, and the group is presently in Miami with producer DetaiL. Borland explained they are taking advantage of Cash Money’s resources and that their follow-up to Gold Cobra could go two ways. He stated: “One direction is very heavy like our last album ‘Gold Cobra,’ but with me pushing the riffs further than they were before. But we’re also working on hip-hop club tracks that have guitar and Fred [Durst, vocals] on them. We’re coming from two very different places on this and right now they’re starting to cross over into each other, which is exciting. We don’t want to make Gold Cobra II.”
New tracks, so far, have been more experimental, although the record is still in the early stage of creation. A release date has not been announced, although Limp Bizkit is heading onto the road, starting the U.S. leg of their tour in October. Borland’s side project Black Light Burns is the opener.
Limp Bizkit’s collaboration with Lil Wayne was expected to hit stores in March, but the band ran into label issues. Specifically, the track – which may or may not see the light of day, according to Borland – was recorded before they switched from Interscope Records to Cash Money.
