Limp Bizkit Leave Record Label
Alternative group Limp Bizkit are without a record deal after splitting from their longtime label.
Frontman Fred Durst has confirmed the band recently parted ways with Interscope, the company behind all six of the band's albums, and the singer admits the split came down to creative differences over their latest record "Gold Cobra."
However, Durst is pleased they are now free to pursue their music career independently.
In an online interview for the Poolside With Dean Delray podcast, Durst says, "One of the things with 'Gold Cobra' was that it was a record for us to do for ourselves, for the core fans, for some of the people that we know in the industry.
"It wasn't our step forward to make a big pop, smash radio record; we just didn't want to make that record at that time. We have been working for a while now to re-navigate where we are going to take Limp Bizkit and finally we have been able to get off our label and become independent."
Durst also reveals the band will now focus on touring instead of writing new music. He adds, "The record thing sort of kind of always got in our way, but it's part of the game and we love writing music and it happened that we had some songs that became popular and we never thought that would happen. So with this way, we can still go tour.
"We do very, very good on our touring, and we mainly tour outside the United States. It seems like in the United States, they're waiting on a song, they're waiting on a hit, and the rest of the world doesn't necessarily operate that way. So I'm waiting until we can really give them something they can sink their teeth into and then they can be reminded about how ill (good) Limp Bizkit is live."
