Bizkit: Back To The Drawing Board
However the band still maintain that the record, which is currently entitled ‘The Search for Teddy Swoes’, will be out in time for their mammoth summer trek with Metallica and Linkin Park.
Frontman Fred Durst has stated that the band are working on new material with new guitarist Mike Smith, whilst internet sources allege that the band’s initial demos for ‘…Teddy Swoes’ were rejected by A&R chiefs at the band’s record company Interscope.
“The chemistry with our new guitar player Mike is so dope that we are spending the next couple weeks writing a new album,” said the red capped one in his online journal on www.limpbizkit.com. “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. [But] 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 fucking mission!”
Smith made his first live appearance with the group, and guest guitarist Head from Korn, in April at WWE (nee WWF’s) Wrestlemania event where the band performed ‘Rollin’ and future single ‘Crack Addict’.
