Durst Promises To Go “Mad As Fuck” On New Album
Promises frontman Fred Durst: “We’re gonna go in, no air-conditioning, 130 degree room, just mad as fuck, and just go there,” he said. “We need to go there. We have a lot to say now, and we’re really emotional. The success has allowed us to step back and look at the world.”
The band have been working on new songs during soundchecks whilst on the road, and the ideas they have generated hint at a return to their roots. Indeed, Durst predicts that the next album will be so different from the last that he has even referred to it as “anti-’…Chocolate Starfish’.”
Limp Bizkit will commence work on the album upon the completion of their summer tour, which includes a date at Milton Keynes Bowl on June 24. Following the controversy of covering George Michael’s ‘Faith’, they are reportedly considering a version of Billy Joel’s ‘Big Shot’, as well as recording extra material intended for the soundtrack of the film Runts, which Durst will be directing. However, his Equity Card didn’t prevent Fred from taking a recent swipe at Almost Famous actress Kate Hudson for tying the knot with Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson. Speaking at www.limpbizkit.com, he blasted: “I gather Kate has married that bloke from the Black Crowes. That’s bullshit! Something must be done about it!”
After the new album has been completed, Limp Bizkit are apparently considering putting together another Family Values tour for the later part of the year, perhaps even with Korn in tow. And they have just confirmed that Godsmack will be supporting them on the British leg of the tour. The Boston four-piece have just released their second album, ‘Awake’, via Universal. The album’s title track is issued as a single on June 11.
In more humorous news, Cookie Monster, the blue, furry, large-mouthed friend of Kermit The Frog from Sesame Street has apparently recorded a version of the band’s ‘(I Did It All For The) Nookie’. Aptly re-titled ‘(I Did It All For The) Cookie’, it still remains unclear whether or not the track it to be released in the UK or indeed if Cookie Monster intends to quit Sesame Street and launch a solo career.
