With Wes Borland’s job in Limp Bizkit vacant, the band is already setting up “interview” sessions for a new guitarist. The remaining Bizkit members, Fred Durst, DJ Lethal, Sam Rivers and John Otto, will launch a U.S. tour which will double as guitarist auditions and “fan parties.”

“It’s just a great chance for us to be with our fans,” Durst explained. “We could be at a club, at your house, at the mall, at your high school, who knows?”

Stops for the tour have not been set, but the band is expected to play major cities like New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit and their hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, in their search of the “illest guitar player known to man,” according to Durst’s job description.

The tour is expected to get underway in late November, in time for the release of the band’s upcoming remix album New Old Songs, which is due in stores December 4th. The record features new treatments of Bizkit hits by producers including Butch Vig, Timbaland, the Neptunes and William Orbit, as well as guest performances by Eve, Everlast and Bubba Sparxxx.
