Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland will be performing with Danny Elfman during two shows at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on October 28-29. The guitarist will be joining the other members of Elfman’s backing band, guitarist Nili Brosh, bassist Stu Brooks (Dub Trio), and drummer Josh Freese (ex-Nine Inch Nails). This news comes after Borland previously performed with Elfman at the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival in Indio, CA.
Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland will be performing with Danny Elfman at this year’s Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival. He will be filling in for Robin Finck, who was unable to make the event due to his commitments to Nine Inch Nails. As previously reported, Coachella will take place in Indio, CA on April 15-17 and April 22-24.
Elfman said the following:
“Déjà Vu! Big time! I can’t believe it’s been two years since we rehearsed for Coachella, but I couldn’t be more excited to perform with this amazing group of musicians. Between then and now I went and made a Big Mess, but it’s all coming together nicely, the way it was meant to be.
Excited to announce the Elfband lineup for Coachella: Josh Freese [ex-Nine Inch Nails] on drums, Stu Brooks [Dub Trio] on bass, Nili Brosh and Wes Borland on guitars…
Boingo, Batman, Big Mess and Beyond, here we go, look forward to seeing you all there!”
Borland also commented:
“I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ll be playing in Danny Elfman‘s band at both weekends of Coachella along with Stu Brooks, Nili Brosh and my favorite comedian Josh Freese!!! Thanks to Robin Finck for recommending me as he was unable to play due to Nine Inch Nails commitments! This is an absolute honor and dream come true! See you at Coachella!!”
Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland is planning to release some new NFTs this month. There will be nine pieces available on November 29 via S!NG ecosystem.
Borland recently discussed his NFTs with Currency.com:
“I wanted to make a piece of music consistent with my sketch. It was my only rule for this work. I didn’t want to show myself just as a guitar player but as a person. I wanted to show my very soul in this work.”
He also revealed that Limp Bizkit might release their own NFTs as well:
“We’re gonna do something next year as our new record [‘Still Sucks‘] is just coming out. We’re gonna play together in 2022. Vinyl is so behind, it takes a long time for them. I think we’re gonna work on NFTs and do something really special for this record.”
Borland also added the following about NFTs becoming a possible source of income for artists:
“Art NFTs are art and not an asset but an opportunity, especially to young musicians. They guarantee royalties on secondary sales for the first time as well, and that is important to me – art and music have been too much devalued in these last few years. People are so used to having music for free. Apps like Spotify don’t work for artists. Think about a middle-level band: they must have another job to support their career or produce their album. With NFTs, they’ve got the possibility to live just with their music. Finally, you get the possibility to have direct contact with your fans, and that’s great.”

During a recent appearance on Space Zebra, Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland commented on the disturbing abuse allegations that have been leveled against Marilyn Manson. According to him, “every single thing that people have said about [Manson] is fucking true.”
Borland said the following:
“Marilyn Manson… I was in the band for nine months. He’s not a great guy. And every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true. So relax about the allegations towards the women… Like when people [say bad things about] these women that are coming after him right now… Fuck off. They are speaking the truth. And I’m sorry to everyone on this podcast right now who doesn’t like this, but that guy — he’s amazingly talented, but he’s fucked up and he needs to be put in check and he needs to get sober and he needs to come to terms with his demons. He is a bad fucking guy.”
He also added:
“I was there when he was with Evan Rachel Wood. I was at his house. It’s not fucking cool. And that’s all I’m gonna say about it. So if anyone is coming after these girls and going, like, ‘You blah blah blah, this and that,’ fuck you. That’s all I’m gonna say.”
“Sorry to take this to a dark place, but that guy is canceled. Goodbye. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit) has released a new solo album titled “The Astral Hand.” The effort was recorded with drummer Hayden Scott (ex-AWOLNATION/Ghost) and it serves as a follow-up to Borland’s “Crystal Machete.”
Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has confirmed that he is planning to release his follow-up to “Crystal Machete“ in late October/early November. The effort is titled “The Astral Hand” and Borland had the following to say about it:
“It’s finally about to happen. My full length follow up to the LP Crystal Machete and the EP Matadors and Daughters is about wrapped for a late October or early November release. The new album features @haydencscott on drums and he smashed it. That’ll be 4 albums for me this year. Bang! In the meantime, please feel free to reacquaint yourself with Matadors and Daughters and Crystal Machete! #wesborland #theastralhand”
