"All I'm going to say is this: If you liked what I did in Limp Bizkit and you think you can see where I wanted to go with the music, then I think you will be happy with my new band. Ross Robinson is on board for the record and it's going to be great. The new band is Me, my brother Scott Borland, Kyle Weeks, and Greg Isabelle. I didn't abandon you guys, I am making a record for myself and for you that is true, and feels good. It is not going to be like Big dumb Face. BDF was a joke, and a side project. Everyone took it too seriously. Well, we're about to give you a serious record, so look out for it, I hope we will have it out by the middle of next year, and we will be on tour for a long time after that, getting back into the small clubs, so that we can be close and hang out again. I hope that many of you will be able to open your hearts to something new.
Meanwhile, in a statement of Limp Bizkit's official website, www.limpbizkit.com, band frontman Fred Durst has addressed the parting of ways and the future of the band, saying:
"Allright, enough already. You know Wes has decided to leave Limp Bizkit and I know you're wondering whats gonna happen from here. Well, the first thing thats gonna happen is were going to comb the globe in search of the illist guitar player known to man. Then were gonna take this illist guitar player known to man and were gonna finish writing the sickest new undeniable Limp Bizkit record you could ever imagine.. Wes was a big part of the Limp Bizkit you're used to but his decision to leave has left us in a place where we know the best of Limp Bizkit is yet to come. Lethal, John, Sam and I are gonna take this as an opportunity to take our song writing to a whole new level. At the end of the day its all about the music and the music is all were about. Life is unpredictable and though were shocked, were not discouraged. As the world turns, so does Limp Bizkit. Thank you so much for sticking with us through thick and thin. Weve never let you down and were not gonna start now. Keep the faith and join us on this journey to the next level."
