Wes Borland really needs no introduction, the eccentric guitar player of Limp Bizkit and lead vocalist and guitarist of Black Light Burns and Big Dumb Face. Of course Limp Bizkit has been a dominating force in the nu-metal scene since 1995, even prior to the release of their debut album ‘Three Dolla Bill, Y’all’. ‘While all the Limp Bizkit fans are eagerly awaiting a new album Wes has released a new Big Dumb Face album titled ‘Where Is Duke Lion? He’s Dead…’ on October 31st. This is by far the heaviest project Wes is involved in and has an iconic eerie death metal sound. It is the bands first release since ‘Duke Lion Fights The Terror!!’ in 2001. They also released the track “He Rides Skies” which you can listen to here!

Wes also talks about making the new Big Dumb Face record ‘Where Is Duke Lion? He’s Dead…’ and answers the ultimate question where is the new Limp Bizkit album.
