Fred Durst On The Decline Of Limp Bizkit

Quote:
Originally Posted by NME
Fred Durst has admitted that Limp Bizkit are "over".

In May of this year, the frontman revealed that they had been working on two projects since signing to Lil Wayne's Cash Money label: a studio album titled 'Stampede Of The Disco Elephants', and a follow-up to their 2005 EP 'The Unquestionable Truth Part 1'.

According to Metal Injection, however, the singer has said that although the band are not splitting up, their popularity has waned as a lot of their former fans "have moved on".

Speaking about the current status of the band, he said: "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.

"The reason? We just don’t know what's going on in America," he added. "It's all about the new catchy thing and that's always changing. America is driven by record sales. It's the home of corporations. We're just Limp Bizkit, so we don't know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit."

He went on to say: 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.
Last December, Limp Bizkit said goodbye to their old record label, Interscope, following poor album sales from their last LP 'Gold Cobra'. In April of this year, meanwhile, it was reported that Durst wanted to axe band members John Otto and DJ Lethal from the group.

Truly a sad day for music.

He talks about America being all about the next big thing and whatever's trendy being what's popular. That's pretty much why Limp Bizkit became successful.

So perfect for nu-metal, right you dumb slut?

Looking at it again it doesn't seem like Fred actually said they were breaking up. I'm a little confused by this. In the Metal Injection article he says "we're not breaking up" but he also says they're over. So what exactly is he saying? Is Limp Bizkit just gonna play a few festival shows in Europe from time to time and occasionally put out albums he knows nobody will care about?

He didn't say they're over, he said it's over, referring to the time when they were really popular.
