Limp Bizkit NOT Breaking Up, Wes Borland Insists Via Twitter
Thought you’d seen the last of Limp Bizkit? Think again. In a Twitter post yesterday, guitarist Wes Borland denied that the seminal nu-metal outfit is breaking up, despite what singer Fred Durst implied in a recent interview.
“LB has not called it quits,” Borland tweeted. “That article is insane. Thanks for your concerns, but we’re all good over here.”
The article in question appeared in Kerrang! magazine, Metal Injection reports, and while Durst didn’t exactly say the band is finished, he did cast doubt on its future, admitting its popularity has dwindled.
“But here’s the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band,” he said. “Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.”
Recently, in an apparent bid to extend that moment and stay relevant, Limp Bizkit signed with Lil Wanye’s Cash Money imprint. Durst later announced plans to record both a collection of hip-hop influenced tunes and the “heaviest, most crazy metal record of all time.”
