Wes Borland To Launch His First-Ever NFTs This Month, Limp Bizkit Expected To Follow

Hot on the heels of the release of Limp Bizkit‘s first studio album in a decade, “Still Sucks“, the band’s guitarist Wes Borland is preparing his first set of NFTs for a November 29th release through the S!NG ecosystem. Nine unique contributions from Borland will be made available in the first drop, which will feature unique music and artwork from Borland.

He spoke recently about his plans with Currency.com, revealing that Limp Bizkit themselves will also likely be launching NFTS of their own in the new year.

Borland told the aforementioned publication of his own NFTs:

“I wanted to make a piece of music consistent with my sketch. It was my only rule for this work. I didn’t want to show myself just as a guitar player but as a person. I wanted to show my very soul in this work.”

Speaking of Bizkit‘s tentative plans, he offered:

“We’re gonna do something next year as our new record [‘Still Sucks‘] is just coming out. We’re gonna play together in 2022. Vinyl is so behind, it takes a long time for them. I think we’re gonna work on NFTs and do something really special for this record.”

Borland also touched upon NFTs being a potential source of revenue for artists:

“Art NFTs are art and not an asset but an opportunity, especially to young musicians. They guarantee royalties on secondary sales for the first time as well, and that is important to me – art and music have been too much devalued in these last few years. People are so used to having music for free. Apps like Spotify don’t work for artists. Think about a middle-level band: they must have another job to support their career or produce their album. With NFTs, they’ve got the possibility to live just with their music. Finally, you get the possibility to have direct contact with your fans, and that’s great.”
