Latest Limp Bizkit News
Below is our complete Limp Bizkit news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Jim Farber of the New York Daily News is profiling how the hard rock sales for the past few months have been dampened while faux-grunge group Nickelback, '70s-style acts, Jet and The Darkness, and arty act Incubus have enjoyed success. Farber cites P.O.D., who saw their last release, 'Satellite,' move 2.7 million copies in 2002 while its latest 'Payable on Death' CD has fallen to No. 186 on the Billboard charts after just 13 weeks, selling just over 400,000 copies. Meanwhile, Limp Bizkit's 'Results May Vary', is lumbering in the low 80s on the chart after 20 weeks, selling only as many as first week sales of their previous effort, 'Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water', moved in its first week. Korn's dropoff also is cited.
The article title "Metal bands rocked by slump" surely is incorrect as these bands hardly qualify as metal, with Korn being the closest of them, and their sales probably hurt by the lackluster Untouchables anyway.

In an interview with Canada's Chart magazine, PUDDLE OF MUDD frontman Wes Scantlin unleashed on LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst.
"He doesn't write our songs, he doesn't produce our songs, he doesn't do anything for us. He doesn't do our videos anymore. He doesn't do anything for this band," Wes said. He added, "I don't know what he's doing, I don't know what the guy's like. All I know is that he's like Mr. Hollywood guy, Mr. Celebrity. Like, 'I don't hang out with anybody except Hollywood celebrities'. Every single fucking interview I've ever fucking done, I get asked about that fucking guy. I don't have anything against him, but I haven't talked to the guy in a fucking year and a half. And for me to do interviews all the time and be asked about this certain individual... People thinks he writes music with me or something. He does not do that. I just don't get it. We have nothing in common. He doesn't even call us, he has his assistant call us to congratulate us on our record. Yeah, that's how pathetic he is."
Ex-LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland has posted the following message on the web site of his now-defunct post-LIMP BIZKIT band EAT THE DAY:
"I didn't think that I needed to say anything about this, but to be perfectly clear and to address many rumors I have heard, I have not, nor will I ever join the band EVANESCENCE. [NINE INCH NAILS bassist/guitarist/programmer] Danny Lohner and I worked with [EVANESCENCE singer] Amy Lee on the 'Underworld' soundtrack, talked about working with her sometime again in the future, and no plans of doing so as of right now. We are however in the first stages of doing some songs with Rob Zombie, and that looks like it's going to be good. So once again, I am not joining EVANESCENCE."
ROB ZOMBIE has enlisted some diverse personnel to accompany him in the studio for the recording of his new CD. Danny Lohner of NINE INCH NAILS and Wes Borland who once was in LIMP BIZKIT have the honor of joining Zombie after he finishes up filming for the sequel to 'House of 1000 Corpses'.
EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee has confirmed that the band are contemplating the possibility of working with former LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland on the follow-up to the triple-platinum "Fallen", tentatively due in 2005 through Wind-Up Records. "Wes is a friend and we're talking about writing together on the next record," Lee told Australia's The Age. "But we'll see."
2003 ended on a sour note for EVANESCENCE when founding member and Lee's co-writer Ben Moody abruptly left the band in October, mid-way through a European tour. More...
