LIMP BIZKIT will start work on their new album in July, with mainman FRED DURST claiming it to be the “heaviest, craziest shit you’ve ever heard”.

Durst recently took part in a webchat with fans. Speaking as part of the chat, he revealed that the recording of the follow-up to last year’s ‘Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water’ will commence following their European tour this summer.

He said: “We’re going to work on a new album in July. And it’s going to be the heaviest, craziest shit you’ve ever heard… We’re going to reinvent ourselves on this new record this summer. And we’re headed in a direction that no one dares to go. The new record’s going to be really raw and a lot different from ‘Chocolate Starfish…’ .”

Elsewhere, he said that he plans to do a solo album, although “Limp Bizkit as a whole [are] here to stay”. He also elaborated on his plans to make his directorial debut on the film ‘Runts’, to which Limp Bizkit will record the score. He said: “‘Runts’ is in the works. It’s about an underdog in high school, and there’s a lot of that going on right now, so I think everybody’s going to understand it, and it’s going to shed some light on everybody who feels like an underdog in high school. I’m going to shoot that when I can.”

Limp Bizkit play their largest UK show to date at the Milton Keynes Bowl on June 24.
