Limp Bizkit‘s Fred Durst recently spoke with Kerrang! regarding the bands aversion to touring North America. Speaking in the August 01st issue of the publication, he stated:
“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. 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 later continued:
“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.”
It was revealed this past June that the band were planning to tour the U.S. later this year with Black Light Burns in tow. No word yet on whether or not that trek is still in the works.
