Fred Durst ‘Blamed’ For Canceling Limp Bizkit Album


Wes Borland discussed Fred Durst ‘throwing away’ his Limp Bizkit album vocals in a new Drinks With Johnny interview.

“Bizkit has been in the studio for the last 10 years to try to complete a record. I want to say seven times to different studios, and we’ve been working on stuff working.

“And Fred [Durst, vocals] has been consistently kind of unsatisfied with where the vision is. So we’ve released singles, we did [the 2013 single] ‘Ready to Go,’ and we did another single called ‘Endless Slaughter’ that we put out [in 2014].

“But he [Fred]… I think that he’s just getting to the point now. We probably have 35 songs recorded instrumentally, and he’s done vocals on them, and then thrown the vocals away, going, ‘Fuck this! Throw it away.’

“So I think he’s finally at the point now where he’s gonna pick a set of these songs that he’s finally cool with, and finish them. And we’re gonna finish a record. So, fingers crossed.”

Do you have any idea what that timeline would be? Obviously, it’s not going to happen before these shows.

“No, it’s not going to happen before these shows. I’m not in charge of Fred’s vocals. I’m way done with my parts on the record. I’m sure I’ll go back in and play a little bit more after.

“It’s fucking Fred Durst, he went from being a darling to everybody’s most hated person in the world. We broke up as a band, he’s trying to find his footing on a bunch of these songs.

“He’s so talented and I love him so much as a brother. But if he’s not ready to do it, he’s not ready to do it.” Ultimate-Guitar transcribed his comments.
