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.”

Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland On Marilyn Manson: “Every Single Thing That People Have Said About Him Is Fucking True”

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.”
