Wes Borland Offers Update On New Limp Bizkit Album: “We Probably Have 35 Songs Recorded Instrumentally”

During an appearance on Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ’s “Drinks With Johnny”, Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland offered an update on the band’s new album. According to him, the group “probably have 35 songs recorded instrumentally” and they are just waiting for frontman Fred Durst to finish the vocals.

Borland said the following:

“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. 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], ‘Fuck 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.”

He continued when asked about release plans:

“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 fucking 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. 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.”

Spirit Adrift’s Nate Garrett Says He Once Got An Army Of Metallica Fans To Throw Sandwiches At Limp Bizkit

During a recent appearance on the “Speak N’ Destroy” podcast, Nate Garrett (Spirit Adrift, ex-Gatecreeper) claimed that him and his friend once got an army of Metallica fans to throw sandwiches at Limp Bizkit. The incident took place during the July 25, 2003 date Of Metallica’s “Summer Sanitarium Tour” with Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, and Mudvayne.

Garrett said the following [via The PRP]:

“So yeah we got tickets, we’re 15-years-old—I think Lane might have just turned 16—or maybe not, because my grandparents drove us from Oklahoma to St. Louis. And we went and saw Metallica and me and Lane were on the floor. We hated every single opening band…

It was Mudvayne opening who was actually by far the best band, other than Metallica. We were 15-years-old, like ‘dude these guys are pretty cool’ I remember the singer kind of reminded me of Phil Anselmo and I was a huge fan of Pantera at the time, I was like, ‘this is OK.’ But then Deftones played: Not into it. Still not into it.

And then Linkin Park played, and really not into it. Never into it. And then Limp Bizkit played. And actually funny story there which I do want to tell. When we first got there, security, we ran right up to the front—we’re like like 15 ready to go.

We’re gonna stand in the front for all eight hours or however long it takes. Security had these sandwiches wrapped in tin foil, and there was like, shitty peanut butter sandwiches and cheese sandwiches, and they’re handing them out to people. And my friend Lane is like destroying fools trying to hoard as many of these sandwiches as he can, in his t-shirt and in his pockets.

He’s handing them to me and I’m like ‘dude’, he was just being obnoxious as fuck… I’m like, ‘Dude, what the fuck are you doing? We already ate.’ And he just looks at me with this grin on his face and he’s got all these sandwiches and he goes, ‘Dude. Limp Bizkit‘s playing later.’

Okay, so we start like just getting as many of these things as we can and we stuff our pockets. We’re like, running into older like heshed out Metallica fans and giving them sandwiches. We’re kind of like building an army or whatever. Limp Bizkit starts playing and we just start we start tearing off pieces of sandwiches and crunching them up into these little like tin foil sandwich balls, and just fucking destroying.

It was like relentless just destroying… to the point where like Fred Durst keeps stopping the set. He threw homophobic slurs at us, which was kind of his M.O…. We had like a small army of these dudes in their 50s in battle jackets and stuff and we kept fucking them up. They had to keep stopping the set, and we ran out of sandwiches. I was pulling coins out of my pocket, I remember hitting the bass player, like his pickups, and you could hear it through the PA, he had active pickups, I guess. You could hear these coins hit his bass.

Fred Durst was so mad that he started crying—like the cry anger thing you know—and the bass player had tears in his eyes, and they cut the set short. And I swear to god two shows later—we saw him in St Louis. I think it was two shows later in Chicago, Limp Bizkit broke up in the middle of that tour, and they were gone for years.

So you can thank us for that. The first time I saw Metallica, we broke up Limp Bizkit. And this is before Metallica even played and we’ve already broken up Limp Bizkit. It was a great day.”

“Nailed my first show playing with a recovering broken hand. I can’t express the amount of anxiety I was having leading up to this but three fingers was enough to get the job done and Krasnodar was amazing. Thanks to all my brothers in @limpbizkit for believing in me and my amazing support system including @aliejoboxblock and new costuming by my friends @thewisehatter and @adelemildred for bringing it all together. Big love for Russia. Big love for Krasnodar.”
