This week saw the returning rock veterans share the second single from their upcoming sixth album ‘AMO‘ – a collaboration with Dani Filth. However, frontman Oli Sykes has said that the track was originally intended for Fred Durst and his band of nu-metal icons.
“Last year, me and Jordan [Fish] went and worked with Fred Durst on a Limp Bizkit album,” Sykes told BBC Radio One. It just didn’t work out, to be honest. He just didn’t show up most of the time.
“Lovely guy, but I don’t think he was ready to make an album. I think he was pushed into it a bit, like, his managers and people said ‘These are the guys you want to work with.’ So we gave him all these ideas and I mean it was just bad from day one, to be honest.”
Sykes continued: “It’s one of them things, looking back, where it wasn’t meant to be. One good thing came out of it: me and Jordan wrote this riff and I one day decided the tempo and key matched almost perfectly with the song. So we de-Bizkit‘d it a bit, and it ended up sounding pretty sick.”
‘Amo’ will drop on January 25, 2019. You can pre-order it here. It emerged this week that Grimes will feature on the track ‘Nihilist Blues’.
