Last Sunday (March 30), the Bizkit performed atÖ uh, Wrestlemania? Yes, the hard rocking, Durst-fronted, TRL superstars took their high-energy live show to the ring and performed a pair of songs for the 10-16 year old, socially challenged kids at the event. The band, who had help from Korn's Brian "Head" Welch and former Snot guitarist Mike Smith, ran through "Rollin'" and a song called "Crackpipe" from the forthcoming, still untitled new album. Head obviously still has a gig, but Durst posted a message on the band's website announcing Mike Smith as the band's new axe-man. He said, "Our new guitarist, Mike Smith, ripped hard, we've been working with him for a while, he's dope."
Durst also talked a bit about the new album, due in June:
"The more the build-up continues, the more I realize how much depth this album has. It's not one-dimensional like others I'm hearing in this genre. And it doesn't sound like a pre-fabricated formula. It feels very honest and real to me. I'm sure you will feel the same. I'm getting excited."
According to Launch.com, the Bizkit are close to solidifying venues for a May tour. We'll let you know if any more details regarding the tour are revealed.
