Kerrang! magazine conducted an interview with guitarist LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland at this year’s Download festival, which took place June 14-16 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
LIMP BIZKIT recently released a new single, “Ready to Go”, and is putting the finishing touches on its new studio album, “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants”.
“We’re really trying to get it hammered out here,” Wes Borland told Billboard last month. “We’re done with most of the music, pretty much all the music. The lyrics and vocals are probably 30 percent done, and [Fred Durst] is working as we speak, on tour.”
Regarding the musical direction of LIMP BIZKIT‘s new CD, Borland said that the songs on “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants” have a “very live and sort of wild” feel. Moreover, fans shouldn’t expect the same old LIMP BIZKIT on the album; instead, there will be quite a bit of experimentation on the effort. “I think it’s a little bit more, sort of playful, taking chances, a little less pop, structured type of stuff,” Borland said. “I don’t want to say it [sounds] younger, but maybe a little more carefree, musically, to where we don’t over-think what we’re doing.”
LIMP BIZKIT and Lil Wayne’s collaborative single, “Ready To Go”, was released via the band’s new label home, Cash Money, Lil Wayne‘s longtime record company.
LIMP BIZKIT in 2011 parted ways with Interscope, the label that released all of the band’s records thus far through its subsidiaries Flip, Geffen and Suretone Records.
