Limp Bizkit is sprinting forward on work for its upcoming album, "Stampede of the Disco Elephants," and guitarist Wes Borland predicts an August finish followed by a hoped-for September release.
"We're really trying to get it hammered out here," Borland tells Billboard about the group's first album under its new association with Cash Money Records. "We're done with most of the music, pretty much all the music. I've mixed two songs and have a lot more mixing to do. The lyrics and vocals are probably 30 percent done, and (frontman Fred Durst) is working as we speak, on tour."
Borland describes the sound of the album as "a little more pressure-free and a little more fun. I think it's a little bit more sort of playful, taking chances, a little less pop structured type of stuff. I don't want to say it (sounds) younger, but maybe a little more carefree, musically, to where we don't over-think what we're doing. We're leaving mistakes in and going, 'Oh, that sounds great, leave that in.' That's sort of the thinking instead of polishing too much or trying to stay within the parameters of a formula."
