Fred Durst On New Limp Bizkit ‘Stampede Of The Disco Elephants,’ ‘Some Of The Songs Have An Urban Feel’
Rap-metal mayhem makers Limp Bizkit are renowned in the music industry for quirky album titles like Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ and the infamously weird Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.
While their last album, 2011’s Gold Cobra, was much more moderately monikered fare, it seems like the Florida-bred band is trying to top themselves with their interestingly-titled seventh album.
In an interview with Kerrang, the newly-minted Cash Money label crew said that they are working on two projects–a follow-up to their 2005 EP The Questionable Truth (Part 1) and a full-length studio LP called Stampede of the Disco Elephants.
“‘Stampede’ has got to have something sizzling about it that’s more universally accepted,” said Durst in an interview. “Some of the songs have an urban feel. We’re writing all different sorts of tracks and it seems like the songs going into that basket are ones that girls can like as much as guys who like to rock.”
Earlier this year, rumors spread like wildfire across Twitter when it was alleged that Durst wanted to fire DJ Lethal and drummer John Otto. Durst didn’t shed any light on the matter but he did felt as if “the leash” had been taken off them now that the band is off Interscope and on Birdman and Slim’s label.
“It’s like the leash has been taken off us and we’ve been given full rein to do as we please,” described Durst.
