It seems as Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst just needs a bit of a pep talk these days to keep his iconic nu-metal act going. Metal Injection is currently reporting that Durst in a recent interview with Kerrang! said somethings along the line of the fans not being there anymore and that is over. Don’t believe me? Heres just what he had to say about what touring in America is for Limp Bizkit-
“We don’t play back home. We’ve boycotted America for many years now. I don’t know, I just don’t wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven’t properly toured America since 2006.”
Durst continues to discuss how America is “the home of the corporations,” and how that is a factor in why they don’t do well. He even continues on to toss in some numbers. You can read that part right here-
“But here’s the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.”
I’d like to see actual numbers for the amount of people actively fans of Limp Bizkit these days. However many, I’m sure they are even getting annoyed, the band even signed to a new label to try to release music for their fans on Cash Money Records, but any news of material by the band has yet to be announced. That is other than that they’re writing their “heaviest” material. Does drought of official activity this mean it really could be the end for Limp Bizkit? Stay tuned and together, folks, I know this will be an emotional story for all of us.
