Yeah I know this is old news about Bizkit being dropped by Interscope. But in case you didn’t know here is the article posted by Blabbermouth a month ago. So how terrible was this album? Well I ranked in number two for the worst of the year but far beyond that it didn’t even hit the 100k mark in sales 6 months after release. I mean how can the inspiration for Hollywood Undead fail on so many levels? What I really want to know is if Fred Durst behind the scenes is as much of a clueless nimrod as he appears to be in videos and interviews or is it just a front? Here is his big press announcement on the future of Limp Bizkit courtesy of the PRP.
LB is joining forces w the unexpected to bring you our best material yet in 2012. Gold Cobra was for the core and our farewell to the corrupt machine. The Unquestionable Truth pt 2 and Stampede of the Disco Elephants are for the masses in ways which are indescribable through text.
We finally feel like ourselves again with no restraints and boundaries preventing us from being who we truly are as a band. The ride thus far has been nothing less than a true rock and roll journey.
We are grateful for every moment and bid the most sincere farewell to those we will now leave behind. LB will start releasing new material unethically and affectively as soon as the deals are signed and sealed in January as attorneys start their holiday vacations months before the holidays even begin.
And btw, our video POOP will finally find its way in its entirety to your eyeballs soon enough.
Gracias, LB 2012
Yes, let’s blame the label for what popped out of your collective minds and put on cd. I think the only other mainstream album to bomb more then Gold Cobra was Chinese Democracy. And Gold Cobra bombed because even people with terrible taste in music avoided this based on the sales figures. And thanks Fred, I appreciate shit being thrown in my face for next year. Lord knows I had it crammed in my ears this year. Seriously though, press releases like this make me think of the terrible people that audition for American Idol fully convinced they’re going to move on and then throw a fit when they’re denied harshly. So does Fred truly believe his music is good?Or is this more marketing manipulation to get people to see just how bad this band can be?
