Former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has christened his new band Eat The Day, also the name of a preset effect on one of his keyboards. The band's lineup -- Borland, his brother Scott on guitar, Kyle Weeks on turntables/sampler, and Greg Isabella on drums -- is exactly the same as in Borland's Big Dumb Face project, which issued the "Duke Lion Fights the Terror" album on Interscope in March.

According to the Big Dumb Face official Web site, Eat The Day has "completed a handful of songs" for its debut album and plans to tour in support of the set in 2002. Yet another Borland side band, Goatslayer, also plans to record new material next year.

Meanwhile, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has confirmed an appearance at the MTV Europe Music Awards, set for Thursday (Nov. 8) in Frankfurt, Germany. Durst will team with Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin for a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Thank You" at the event, which will also feature performances by Blink-182, Craig David, and R.E.M., among others.

Bizkit has yet to name a replacement for Borland, who left the band last month. The group's Interscope remix album, "New Old Songs," is due Dec. 4.
