Limp Bizkit are to hold 'fan parties' to find a replacement for recently departed guitarist Wes Borland. The band will embark on a tour of the United States to hold a series of auditions and 'fan parties'.
The parties will be informal. "It's just a great chance for us to be with our fans," says Fred Durst. "We could be at a club, at your house, at the mall, at your high school, who knows."
According to a statement, the auditions will "offer the opportunity for talented young players from across the country to have a unique opportunity to join one of the largest rock bands in the world." The band would like to include Boston, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The statement says that they will "tentatively" start in late November.
Further details will be posted on the band's website.
Limp Bizkit's upcoming release, New Old Songs, will be released on 4 December. It features remixes of the band's "top songs".
The band are also releasing a double-A-side single on 29 October. Boiler will be accompanied by Faith - a cover of George Michael's 1987 hit.
