Limp Bizkit Speak On Label Split And Future Plans In New Statement

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst looks to have made his previously promised big announcement. Durst released the following statement earlier today (December 30th):

“LB is joining forces w the unexpected to bring you our best material yet in 2012. Gold Cobra was for the core and our farewell to the corrupt machine. The Unquestionable Truth pt 2 and Stampede of the Disco Elephants are for the masses in ways which are indescribable through text.

We finally feel like ourselves again with no restraints and boundaries preventing us from being who we truly are as a band. The ride thus far has been nothing less than a true rock and roll journey.

We are grateful for every moment and bid the most sincere farewell to those we will now leave behind. LB will start releasing new material unethically and affectively as soon as the deals are signed and sealed in January as attorneys start their holiday vacations months before the holidays even begin.

And btw, our video POOP will finally find its way in its entirety to your eyeballs soon enough.

Gracias, LB 2012″

    sweet. with titles like, “Stampede of the Disco Elephants”, I’m sure it was just the record label holding them back from their inner ingenuity. i remember when i tried to be weird just to be weird. come to think of it….i was also saying “yeah” a lot of times in people’s faces, and telling everyone i was “feeling their lighters.” come to think of it….i really wasn’t that weird at all. just a talentless douchebag. pun intended? i think so.

    When is Fred going to realize the style of music they play had it’s time and place, And that time and place is NOT 2012? It’s not “The Industry” holding LB back, It’s that times have changed. They need to face reality.

    That, Or take it back. Take it back to the small clubs. Scale the lights and stage show down a little bit, Chop 15-20 bucks off your normal 40-50 dollar ticket price and get down to business. Just the fans and the band. A “grass roots” approach might help these guys.

    Either way, He needs to get over the fact that this isn’t 2001. This band doesn’t put out records that go gold any more. Nor do they have countless TRL #1 Videos any more either.

    *effectively. Limp Bizkit are a good band. Every style goes out of fashion, and then comes back. Who ever thought butt rock and Iron Maiden would be back, but they are. I like the thought of Bizkit touring, releasing records, and just being a normal band again for the first time in more than a decade. Probably not going to happen though, Durst has too much talent for self-sabotage.

      I like the thought of limp bizkit breaking up forever and knocking this shit off with the comebacks and albums that are supposed to be heavier and better than the last. It’s not gonna hit Fred that LB is washed up until VH1 invites him on “Celebrity Fit Club”. I would love to never hear them again anywhere. There will be plenty of time to listen to limp bizkit when we are in hell.

      @Aggroculture – well put, espcially the self-sabaoge bit. I’d honestly like to see (and hear) him stick to his word. There actually was a time (1997) where they had a scrappy, hungry, creative sound. IF they can harken back to that and make it happen again….. eh, I have my doubts.

    One year from now we will all be saying, “remember when Limp Bizkit was artistically restrained by their record company and we all thought they sucked? How stupid we were back then. Limp Bizkit rules!”

      knowing the intelligence of their fanbase, i wouldn’t be surprised if they think LB just sold out.

    looking forward to Poop, the DVD excerpts from the Results may vary bonus DVD were awesome

  • BAMBIRAPTOR

    I watched “Play Dead” for kicks yesterday. It’s unbelievable how much better Durst is at acting than rapping.

    • Rakasta

      OMG, he’s starring alongside Chris Klein! I’m putting it on my watchlist.

  • SLAYERGUY79

    I bet Roadrunner Records is salivating at an opportunity like this! Lynyrd Skynyrd, Collective Soul, KORN…..and now LB???? Why the fuck not? They don’t sign metal bands anymore. Ten bucks says it is just a matter of time before the LB boys release their first Roadrunner album.

    Oh, great, these assholes have been filling our ears with POOP for over a decade, and now they wanna fill our eyes with it too!?
