DJ Lethal has responded to the recent blunt remarks from his former bandmate Wes Borland regarding his ousting from Limp Bizkit. Speaking via a series of tweets on his Twitter, Lethal offered:

“I actually am so over it. It’s not funny. Good luck. I wish you guys the best. In life never sacrifice your dignity for a $. I was successful before lb and will continue to live my life on my terms. Thanks all the fans! Truth hurts. Wes quit how many times? When I had 10 guys sleeping in my living room and begged the band to bring Wes back.

Also they never even had the courtesy to sit down face to face and talk things out. And after 17 years of being me there’s a problem? I never missed one show,was there through thick and thin. Gave my heart and soul to the band. I’m just man enough to stand up for myself. Don’t get it twisted the truth will prevail!! I’m just intrigued how some people can just disown family Lots more to the story my friends.

How can people expect me to life my life waiting on fred durst? He takes all the credit. Steals money. I made “why try” and “bring it back” Thank you for all the people that supported me on lb. at one time it was a band. We were team. Then it became the fred first show. And since the guys were running low on money Wes told me to hold on my feelings so he can pay his mortgage. So sad.

Fred durst got paid 1.6 million $ for the “free napster tour” free my ass.I paid out of my own pocket to do that tour. ?#lost? respect So all you people passing judgement on me. Go fk your self. That job will be left to GOD. Otherwise. Love and respect Ok. I’ve moved on. Please feel free to unfollow if you want. I’m a genuine honest person. At this point in my life I’m living it “MY WAY”

I was totally chillin until Wes had to open his mouth talking down to fans about a twittation a fan made,so rude. And after 17 years at least sitting down and talking face to face like real men didn’t happen. That’s some pussy ass shit.It’s all abt the $

I do appreciate all the good times and there was many. I love my friends and fans and owe my life to you. Thank you to my real friends-YOU Last comment. Fake friends suck. We been through so much and I was genuine. Whole new meaning to “counterfeit” You should be ashamed.

I’m not going to put these guys down. At one time they were cool and things were great. I’m not on a hate mission. $ makes people desperate A real man looks another man in the eyes and confronts the the issues. Obviously fred didn’t have the balls to look me in the eyes and talk.

Thanks for the support,I couldn’t fake the funk anymore. Stay true to your heart no matter what and never let anyone tell u how to live”

“I didn’t start the battle.I did vent once or twice.Its kind of a big deal in My life like a wife you divorce after 20 years that cheated I’m gonna throw up. I already moved on til Wes made that statement Even though he got fired before they came to my house and quit 2 times.”

Meanwhile, Borland himself was recently asked if the band would be okay with Lethal rejoining the band if he asked. To that, he replied:

“No. He would have to change his behavior for an extended period of time and stop talking tons of shit online. That’s up to him.”

In This Moment Release Statement On Cancelled Shows

In This Moment recently had to cancel some shows due to an lower back injury suffered by frontwoman Maria Brink. The group issued the following statement on the matter:

“ITM UPDATE: Over the last 2 weeks on tour Maria began experiencing acute pain in her lower back that kept getting progressively worse as the shows went on. We had a short break over the 4th of July holiday and Maria saw a doctor who informed her she might need immediate surgery to correct the problem, this obviously took immediate priority over everything else and we were forced to cancel 2 shows, Maine and New Hampshire, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this caused any of our fans. Maria is starting to feel a little better and we are planning to rejoin our current tour supporting Shinedown in Montreal on the 8th, again, if you came to see us and we weren’t there we are sorry, we will be back soon. Send Maria love and support.

ITM”

Their new album “Blood” is on deck for an August 14th release date through Century Media.

Lamb Of God guitarist Willie Adler has taken to his Facebook to thanks fans for their support and address the recent criticisms directed towards the band. Those criticisms stem from the group seeking donations for legal fees to help free Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe.

His statement can be found below; while Blythe has of course been imprisoned in Prague, CZE for over a week on allegations of manslaughter. The situation centers on the death of a fan who was fatally injured at show the band played in Prague in 2010.

“I want to thank all of you again for your un- waivering support in all of this. It’s greatly appreciated and does not go with out notice. I’d also feel re-miss by not mentioning something else.

As you all know, a legal fund has been set up in regards to our current situation. We’ve received quite a bit of backlash which I’d like to respond to. We are by no means requesting charity, nor are we demanding money from our fans.

We have received dozens upon dozens of requests from supporters wanting to help in any way possible. This was a direct response to that in order to give fans a voice in all of this if they choose to do so.

By no means are we trying to make a dime off of this. Trust me, we live for our fans and would never attempt to profit off of them. This is purely a response to those that reached out wanting to extend any and all help.

Which we couldn’t be more thankful for. It brings tears to my eyes as I write this just thinking about the outpouring of support we’ve received.

Collectively, we will bring Randy home. He is my brother, your brother, and more importantly, an innocent man being wrongfully detained. I thank you all again, for everything. I love you all.”

Tonight’s (July 06th) “CBGB Festival” at the Webster Hall in New York City, NY turned ugly. The event was set to feature sets from Sick Of It All, Cro-Mags and Vision Of Disorder. Various eyewitnesses and local news reports, including footage from the show below, are identifying the assailant as former Cro-Mags bassist/vocalist Harley Flanagan.

Flanagan allegedly entered the backstage area and proceeded to slash one victim and bite another. He was quickly subdued by security with police being called to arrest him. EMS were onhand to treat the victims, while the venue was shutdown in light of the incident.

Unconfirmed rumors have been circulating that one of the victims was Cro-Mags bassist Mike Couls. Some footage of the show being shutdown is available below. Meanwhile, New York ABC affiliate WABC have an initial report from the event. Some photos from the scene can also be found over at Boweryboogie.com.

Alexisonfire To Return For Farewell Tour

Alexisonfire will be reuniting for one final farewell tour together. Guitarist/vocalist Wade MacNeil (now of Gallows) has confirmed the news via his Twitter. Meanwhile, guitarist/vocalist, etc. Dallas Green told Spinner:

“I don’t know what we’ll do. I don’t think we’ll play arenas. It’ll probably be a bunch of shows, probably be a bunch of nights at a smaller place. Maybe we’ll play every record or maybe we’ll do different set lists and stuff. It’ll be more of a happy-go-lucky vibe than ‘hey, look at how big we were.’ You know what I mean? It would be more about celebrating what we had and what we did and what we accomplished.”

Amen‘s Casey Chaos was arrested for DUI yesterday night (July 05th) in Studio City, CA after crashing into numerous parked cars. According to TMZ, Chaos abandoned his car and fled to his nearby residence where police later arrested him.

TMZ are also reporting that his blood alcohol level was just above the .08 California legal limit. Footage of his arrest and the damage caused can be found at the above-mentioned link.

Slayer‘s Kerry King has told Rollingstone.com that he hopes to have the bands new album finished up by September and in stores in early 2013. The group finished up tracking two new songs prior to embarking on this years ongoing “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival“, though they have yet to be mixed.

According to King, initial tracks were laid down for two other songs with another two having been demoed with producer Greg Fidelman (Metallica, High On Fire).

King had the following to say on the upcoming sessions:

“If I get off my ass and start writing again on the road – since we’ve been in Europe, I keep trying to work on lyric ideas, maybe some leads, and fixing songs that didn’t work correctly – it should be a real quick process.”

Unsurprisingly, guitarist Jeff Hanneman hasn’t been taking part in the sessions. Instead he continues to recover from a spider bite incuded bout of necrotizing fasciitis on his right arm. King has been picking up the slack while Gary Holt of Exodus has of course been filling in for Hanneman live.

Speaking on Hanneman‘s recovery, King offered:

“After Mayhem we’ll reevaluate and see if he’s any closer. We’re planning for him to come back and the door is open, because it’s his fucking gig. If he can play, Jeff Hanneman is going to fucking be here, and I’m stoked about that. I love playing with Gary, and he’s doing a killer job, but if Jeff came back and said ‘I’m ready,’ I’ll check him out to see that he’s ready, and off we go.”
