Wes Borland Shares Clips From Limp Bizkit’s New Album Sessions

Limp Bizkit have officially started the recording process for their new album. Guitarist Wes Borland has shared a few clips and photos from the studio, which you can check out below. The band have been talking about a new album called “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants“ for a long time, but it is unknown if they are still using that material. It’s worth noting that Borland can be seen holding a bass, seeming to suggest Sam Rivers is not involved in the sessions. The bassist has been absent from touring and has since launched a new project called Sleepkillers.

Jimi Hendrix saw these Southern California daze when he sang look at the sky turn hellfire red someone’s house is burning down down down down. The Los Angeles air is thick with smoke, ash, and ember and the danger has not passed. My house might have burned down down last night were it not for my friend Eric (in the second pic) who defied the evacuation orders and stayed up all through the night armed with his wits and a garden hose, and put out all the little fires at my house and my neighbors, saving our asses. He is a brave and beautiful, a selfless and kind man. So I was able to go be silly with my kids today and go get our nails painted funny colors, without bearing the heavy weariness of having lost all my stuff. We are not out of the woods yet, but with people like eric around we are gonna be ok. Times like these we have to do everything we can to help each other, listen to each other, step up for our neighbors. Empathy is everything, our greatest trait.

Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes & Jordan Fish Were Recruited To Do Some Writing For Limp Bizkit’s New Album

Bring Me the Horizon recently released “Wonderful Life” off their new album “Amo” (out January 25), but it seems the song wasn’t originally written for the effort. During an interview on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter, frontman Oli Sykes revealed that him and keyboardist Jordan Fish were recruited to help write material for Limp Bizkit‘s new album, “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants,” and that the track actually came out of those sessions.

Sykes said the following:

“Last year, me and Jordan went and worked with Fred Durst on a Limp Bizkit album. It just didn’t work out, to be honest. He just didn’t show up most of the time. Lovely guy, but I don’t think he was ready to make an album. I think he was pushed into it a bit, like, his managers and people said ‘These are the guys you want to work with.’ So we gave him all these ideas and I mean it was just bad from day one, to be honest.”

He also added:

“It’s one of them things, looking back, where it wasn’t meant to be. One good thing came out of it: me and Jordan wrote this riff and I one day decided the tempo and key matched almost perfectly with the song. So we de-Bizkit‘d it a bit, and it ended up sounding pretty sick.”

Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J Comments On Shaggy 2 Dope Trying To Dropkick Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst

During an interview with The Orange County Register, Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J discussed his bandmate Shaggy 2 Dope’s failed attempt at drop kicking Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst onstage at the Rock Allegiance festival. According to him, Shaggy 2 Dope was “just having fun.” This news comes after Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal previously blasted Shaggy 2 Dope before The Iron Shiek came in to defuse the situation. Violent J said the following:

“Well, you know, just wild style. Fred Durst is a friend of ours, you know what I mean? Just having fun. Things look so crazy when they get into the news wire. He obviously threw it as a fake thing. If he actually wanted to hit him I don’t think he would have thrown a pro wrestling dropkick. It probably would have looked a lot more serious and ruthless.”
