Limp Bizkit is remaking its new album, which had been titled Bipolar. Frontman Fred Durst insists, however, that the album will still come out before its tour with Metallica, Linkin Park, Mudvayne and Deftones begins on July 4 in Michigan. No release date is available for the forthcoming effort.
The band’s planned Guerrilla Tour, which was never officially announced, is likely to be put on hold.
Former Snot guitarist Mike Smith has been added to the band’s line-up. “I’ve got good news people,” wrote Durst on the Limp Bizkit website. “The chemistry with our new guitar player Mike is so dope that we are spending the next couple weeks writing a new album!! What!! You heard!! We will still have it ready to release before the summer tour with Metallica.”
Durst added, “The 19 songs we wrote without Mike are still amazing and sitting on the shelf waiting on me to do whatever the hell I want to do with them. The energy and vibe in our rehearsal space is absolutely amazing!! We are and band. We have a guitar player that is going to bug you out. The songs are out of control and I’m on a f-king mission!!!!!!!!!! It’s on!!”
