Remember back in February when Cash Money announced that they signed Limp Bizkit? The band that was once very popular in the ‘00s planned on making a comeback with their new team. Lil Wayne was scheduled to be on their new single, which got all their diehard fans excited. All signs were pointing to a resurrection.
However, the Limp Bizkit frontman cleared things up in a recent interview with an international publication Kerrang! He speaks on Limp Bizkit’s planned U.S. tour that was canceled for unknown reasons. You can probably speculate it was because of poor ticket sales and lack of interest. Then, he talks about changing tastes of the U.S. audience and how it affected the band. Read the excrept below.
“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.
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.”
