Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has opened up about his band’s struggle to release new music and blamed bandmate Fred Durst by saying that he always has been unsatisfied with the vision.

Limp Bizkit has released its fifth and latest studio album in 2011, titled Gold Cobra. Since the fifth album, the band has been working on a new effort titled Stampede of the Disco Elephants. The release date of the album is not announced yet.

However, in a new appearance on Drinks with Johnny, Borland has detailed his band’s new music.

Speaking about the issue, the musician said that the band has worked in seven different studios in the process. He also said that the singer Durst throw it away all those songs they’ve made in the studios.

When the interviewer asked about the band’s upcoming album that is yet to receive an official release date for years now, the guitarist said: “Bizkit has been in the studio for the last 10 years to try to complete a record. I want to say seven times to different studios, and we’ve been working on stuff working.

“And Fred [Durst, vocals] has been consistently kind of unsatisfied with where the vision is. So we’ve released singles, we did [the 2013 single] ‘Ready to Go,’ and we did another single called ‘Endless Slaughter’ that we put out [in 2014].

“But he [Fred]… I think that he’s just getting to the point now. We probably have 35 songs recorded instrumentally, and he’s done vocals on them, and then thrown the vocals away, going, ‘Fuck this! Throw it away.’

“So I think he’s finally at the point now where he’s gonna pick a set of these songs that he’s finally cool with, and finish them. And we’re gonna finish a record. So, fingers crossed.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the guitarist was asked when the upcoming and sixth studio album of the band, Stampede of the Disco Elephants, will be released.

When the interviewer said, “Do you have any idea what that timeline would be? Obviously, it’s not going to happen before these shows,” Borland said there is no release date yet, but he gave information about it.

“No, it’s not going to happen before these shows,” he said. “I’m not in charge of Fred’s vocals. I’m way done with my parts on the record. I’m sure I’ll go back in and play a little bit more after.

“It’s fucking Fred Durst, he went from being a darling to everybody’s most hated person in the world. We broke up as a band, he’s trying to find his footing on a bunch of these songs.

“He’s so talented and I love him so much as a brother. But if he’s not ready to do it, he’s not ready to do it.”
