Limp Bizkit talk new musical direction.
July 29, 2012
Wes Borland tells RevolverMag.com about the musical direction of the new material. "We're going two different directions right now, One direction is very heavy like our last album, 'Gold Cobra', but with me pushing the riffs further than they were before. But we're also working on hip-hop club tracks that have guitar and Fred on them. We're coming from two very different places on this and right now they're starting to cross over into each other, which is exciting. We don't want to make 'Gold Cobra II'."
Regarding the songwriting process for the upcoming Limp Bizkit CD, Borland tells RevolverMag.com, "We've had a lot of little scattered sessions and we're firing out ideas into the darkness and seeing what sticks and what starts to form and become something new. I've gotten really intense about writing snappy, complicated riffs that have a lot of dive bomb-type whammy bar push-and-pull suction sound in them. It's too soon to tell where we're going with it all. We're not at the point where everything flows or makes sense, but we'll know when we get there."
The band are scheduled to embark on a major U.S. tour in October with Borland's side project Black Light Burns opening the show.
Last year the band parted ways with Interscope, the label that released all of the band's records thus far through its subsidiaries Flip, Geffen and Suretone Records.
This will also be the bands first album without DJ Lethal, Lethal was fired from the group for personal reasons.
