Guitarist Wes Borland creates original painting for new release
Limp Bizkit have revealed the unusual artwork for their upcoming new single ‘Shotgun’.
The track looks set to feature on the group’s new album ‘Gold Cobra’ due out June 27.
Tweeting from Twitter.com/FredDurst, the frontman replied to queries as to whether the leaked artwork was genuine, saying: “Looks pretty legit to me.”
“That’s the new logo I drew and the painting [guitarist] Wes [Borland] did on the single artwork I turned in last week.”
Durst earlier updated fans with the news that the single is due out later this month.
‘Gold Cobra’ will be Limp Bizkit‘s sixth studio album, and is the follow-up to 2005’s ‘The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1)’.
The band will play the UK’s Sonisphere Festival in July.
Despite selling millions of albums in the ’90s, Limp Bizkit have struggled in recent years to recapture past glories. In 2005 they released a greatest hits album which guitarist Wes Borland described as “a piece of shit and a waste of money.”
Borland subsequently quit the band – for the second time – having previously quit in 2001, only to rejoin three years later.
Durst recently indicated that a follow-up to ‘Gold Cobra’ has already been written. He wrote on Twitter: “Obviously we have two albums here, in case you didn’t pick up on that. First one is Gold Cobra. Due soon.”
