Gold Cobra

Gold Cobra is the upcoming fifth studio album by American nu metal band Limp Bizkit, scheduled to be released through Polydor and Interscope Records early 2010. It is the group's first studio album in seven years and will be the first release by the original line-up of the band since 2000's Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water (Results May Vary without Wes Borland, The Unquestionable Truth Part 1 without John Otto).

Album information

In mid-2008 rumors began to indicate that Limp Bizkit were planning a comeback tour, these rumors were later confirmed. Interviews with various members of the band had hinted that Terry Balsamo was to replace Wes Borland, but Balsamo was demanding a written contract, which the band was either unable or unwilling to give. Despite no official confirmation from the band, members of Limp Bizkit signed up on Twitter including Wes, with DJ Lethal confirming the accounts to be real, making Borland's rejoining seem less like a rumor. In late 2008, bassist Sam Rivers hinted that the group was in the early stages of writing new material for the fifth full-length album, the bands first full-length album in 6 years.

On February 11, 2009, Durst posted on his Twitter account the message "1am pacific time- tonight". The site was up and running for the first time in years and confirmed the return of Wes. Through a blog post on the homepage, Fred Durst and Wes Borland issued a joint statement:

We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other. Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back.[1]

August 24th, 2009 marked the official first day of recording new material, as well as the first time the entire band had recorded together since 2000. Less than one month later, a twitter update via Fred Durst informed readers of the instrumental recording completion, along with the first of two layers of vocals. On November 30, Durst revealed in a Kerrang article, and later via Twitter, that the new album would be called Gold Cobra and would be released June 2010 by Polydor/Interscope.

Durst told Kerrang Magazine in December of 2009 that the album will feature 10 songs with interludes/segues between the songs. In a series of radio interviews Fred confirmed some working titles as "Combat Jazz”,” Douche Bag", "Weird & Poisonous" and "It Ain't Me." It was also revealed that Wes Borland came up with the album name "Gold Cobra".[2] He confirmed the band will shoot music videos, as well as mentioning intent to release up to three songs at once as opposed to one first single, with a possible release date of March 2010.[3] Rumored guest performances on the album include Mathematics, Raekwon (Wu-Tang Clan), Aaron Lewis, and Paul Wall.
