June 9, 2010

Bloody-Disgusting.com conducted an interview with guitarist Wes Borland of LIMP BIZKIT at the fourth annual Rock On The Range festival, which was held May 22-23 in Columbus, Ohio. You can now watch the chat below.

LIMP BIZKIT recently cancelled its previously announced summer tour in favor of a fall arena outing.

The "Gold Cobra" tour was scheduled to begin July 3 in Holmdel, N.J. at PNC Bank Arts Center.

LIMP BIZKIT's new album, "Gold Cobra", is scheduled for release later this year.

Regarding the new CD's musical direction, frontman Fred Durst recently told MTV News, "I think that, in a nutshell, we came in staying true to ourselves and doing what we do. ... We make heavy music that has rapping in it. We're a rap-core band. Through the years, it felt natural to try and explore and grow beyond that, and inevitably, it led us in different directions. And what our coming back together represents is us having figured out that, you know, evolution is great, but we need to do what we do.

"And this new album, this is what we do. The evolution has brought us full-circle," Durst continued. "We're LIMP BIZKIT. And if you didn't like it before, you're not going to like it now. If you don't want to hear a band that plays super-heavy grooves, with an MC rapping over it, then you shouldn't listen to LIMP BIZKIT."

"Gold Cobra" is expected to feature guest appearances by a host of hip-hop artists, including WU-TANG CLAN rapper Raekwon, Paul Wall and WU-TANG CLAN producer Mathematics.
