Limp Bizkit's knack for silly album titles hasn't waned over the years. The band that once brought us 'Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water' will return with 'Stampede of the Disco Elephants,' their first release on the Cash Money label, confirming an album title that had been rumored in recent months.
Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland is multi-talented. The guitarist, who is also a member of Black Light Burns and who is often cited as the interesting musical mind of the Bizkit and the yin to Fred Durst's yang, is showing off his design skills and partnering with an indie metal band to do so.
Wes Borland is one busy music-making man. In addition to working on the new Limp Bizkit disc, the guitarist is trying to wrap up work on the new Black Light Burns record, four years in the making. Black Light Burns debuted their first disc titled ‘Cruel Melody’ back in 2007, and fans have been anxiously awaiting a follow up ever since.
With a new record deal with Cash Money Records under his belt, Fred Durst apparently has a new vision for the future of Limp Bizkit and that vision does not seem to include original members DJ Lethal and drummer John Otto. While no one has officially been axed from the band just yet, TMZ reports that Durst told both parties that they didn’t necessarily fit into his master plan.
Don't blink or you might miss something! Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst shared a 14-second video of guitarist Wes Borland riffing on his guitar. It's incredibly short but it's also an organic look at the band as it works on new material for its forthcoming debut for Cash Money after a long career on Interscope. It's the right label digs for the band, since Durst and co. have been meshing rap and rock seamlessly for years. The formula has served the Bizkit well.
