'Bipolar' Bizkit Renames Album
Rock/rap act Limp Bizkit has changed the name of its forthcoming Flip/Interscope album. The album's originally announced title, "Lessismore," has been dropped in favor of "Bipolar," according to a notRock/rap act Limp Bizkit has changed the name of its forthcoming Flip/Interscope album. The album's originally announced title, "Lessismore," has been dropped in favor of "Bipolar," according to a note from frontman Fred Durst posted today (Feb. 20) on the band's official Web site.
"We've finished the album and I've just arrived in [New York] to mix with Andy Wallace," Durst writes. "The name of the album is 'Bipolar' and will hit your asses on May 13."
Two days ago, Durst posted a "raw, unmixed, and straight from the studio" version of one of the band's new songs, "Just Drop Dead," on the site. The verses feature repetitive heavy guitar riffs under Durst's expletive-ridden jilted lover rant, sandwiched around lighter, more melodic choruses.
"I wrote the song about someone who just shouldn't have crossed the line. someone who thinks they can just get away with anything regardless of how bad the karma will be," he writes in his latest post. "Someone who lives there [sic] life fooling everyone. Not me, Not this time. And there it is."
"We've all been in situations where we've just had enough," he adds. "Well I'm fed up with alot [sic] of s*** and 'Bipolar' is the way I have chosen to vent and like it or not its coming." Durst goes on to promise the album's as-yet-unrevealed first single will be posted on the site "as soon as Andy mixes it."
