Limp Bizkit have release 'Shotgun,' the first single from the band's upcoming reunion album, 'Gold Cobra.'
In February 2009, the nu metal group announced that they would be reforming with its original members because they were "more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than they were with each other."
Although they reportedly finished 'Gold Cobra' in 2010, 'Shotgun' is the first release from the record. In the song, frontman Fred Durst displays a don't-care attitude, while singing about running from the law and doing whatever he pleases.
"Everybody jumps from the sound of a gun / Yeah in my neighborhood, everybody got one," he insists.
'Gold Cobra' will be the band's first release since 2005's 'The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1),' but guitarist Wes Borland admitted there's no deep meaning behind the album's title.
"I've never been in a band where someone goes, 'Ah, I've got the perfect name! And it's because I climbed Mount Fuji, and at the top a golden dove came down...'" he told Entertainment Weekly. "It's always a bunch of guys sitting around going, 'How about Rotten Chipmunks?' We were just emailing back and forth and Gold Cobra came out and it was like, 'That sounds like the music we're making right now.'"
On May 13, Durst tweeted a video, which showed him driving through Laurel Canyon while listening to 'Shotgun.' "Shotgun through Laurel Canyon," he wrote. "Welcome to Lost Angeles."
Limp Bizkit have confirmed international tour dates through August 7, and are working on solidifying a US tour. Before they come to a city near you, check out 'Shotgun' on AOL Radio's New Rock First station.
