Limp Bizkit’s constantly embattled Wes Borland has had enough with the guitarist taking to Twitlonger to “clear a few things up that are more than a tweet long”, namely the progress of his side project Black Light Burns and the latest Limp Bizkit track, which kinda sucks.
Rumours of Borland being a dick have been circulating since the beginning of time itself but Wes thinks we may have judged too quickly, as outlined in the below statement. Wes has also taken the opportunity to explain his business being in two different bands and attempts to justify the new Limp Bizkit single Ready To Go.
Now, we’ve included the stream in this article for you to check out and for that we’re truly sorry. Ready To Go will take up a serious percentage of your day and you will most likely receive nothing in return other than the desire to never hear it again.
Ready To Go sees Limp Bizkit take a bold stand against the quality of rock music these days…followed by a verse from their new boss Lil Wayne. The single will supposdely be featured on the band’s myth of an album Stampede Of The Disco Elephants, which at this point in time still has no release date.
Here’s the track. And I’m sorry. I’m just doing my job.
Listen: Limp Bizkit – Ready To Go feat. Lil Wayne
Wes Borland’s Twitlonger statement:
“I wanted to clear a few things up that are more than a tweet long, so I’m using this twitlonger thing.
1. Sometimes, because of the way I am on here, people think I’m a dick or that I don’t respect fans. Untrue. I speak to everyone on here like I would speak to my close friends. There’s a level of sarcasm and ribbing and I’ve never taken Twitter too seriously, but apparently it’s become a very serious place where people get incredibly affected and that’s unfortunate. If you’ve ever been to a BLB show, you’ll know that I love everyone and go into the crowd and try to spend as much time as I can with the folks that came out. I am eternally grateful to anyone who’s an admirer of my music or artwork.
2. I love being in Limp Bizkit. I love my big band as much as I love my small band, Black Light Burns. The 2 are completely different, but I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of both.
3. There’s a difference between being a constructive critic and being an asshole. If you’re an asshole to me on any social media, I’m just going to block you, end of story. I don’t want to argue and it’s exhausting to debate with people who are already biased against me. It’s just not worth my energy.
4. I’m really proud of our new single. I think Ready To Go is great and I’m a fan of Lil Wayne and was thrilled he could be a part of it. I don’t know what some people were expecting from LB’s new material, but if you think R2G is far from the mark of our business-as-usual, you’re either not well acquainted with our band, or have insane expectations that will never be met by anything we deliver.
5. To Americans: Yes, LB is still a band. We haven’t operated very much lately in the states, but that’s changing this year. We hope to see lots of you out on tour in about a month.
Thanks for your attention. -Wes”
