In a recent interview, Fred Durst hinted that his band, Limp Bizkit, may be over, but he took to Twitter to clear up all the confusion, noting that the group, which recently signed to Lil Wayne’s Cash Money label, is not breaking up.
Durst reportedly told Kerrang! magazine that the band’s time is “over,” explaining that the group’s popularity has waned considerably in the U.S., which is why they haven’t toured here since 2006.
“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,” he explained. “The reason? We just don’t know what’s going on in America. 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.”
Durst admits that the group just doesn’t have as many fans as it did in 2000. “Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.”
Many took the “it’s over” quote seriously, thinking that Limp Bizkit has broken up, but that’s not the case, according to Durst and Wes Borland.
“These are the best rumors they got?” Durst tweeted. “@wesborland and I are LOBO. LB is great and we're loving SOTDE, but our matching penis tats are better.” Borland added, “LB has not called it quits. That article is insane. Thanks for your concerns, but we're all good over here.”
Durst added, “desperate mag lol.”
