Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, was recently a guest on Let There Be Talk podcast. During the interview, he was asked about when we might here the follow up to 2011’s ‘Gold Cobra’ album.
“Where I am right now is – play a few Limp Bizkit shows every year, there’s a record that has been in the works for a long time and not at a place where I don’t think it’s going to get finished anytime soon,” Borland said. “Maybe it will, but I’m not sure. It’s been a bunch of songs that have been floating around for four years now, and little by little, stuff gets added to it. But I think that we’re all into such different stuff that making a Limp Bizkit record is kind of difficult.”
He went on to explain the difficulties they’ve had getting things recorded. “We don’t live in the same city anymore, so I’m not sure what’s going to be, or when it’s going to come out, or what’s going on with it. But it’s weird to be in a situation where nobody wants to hear new material anyway, they’re coming to the shows for nostalgia and want to hear the old songs.
“So what’s the carrot for us to write to a new record at this point – if we’re all interested in doing other music anyway? If it happens, it will happen at some point.”
