It is fitting that Limp Bizkit fans chose “Boiler” for the band’s next single, as Fred Durst and the boys have been boiling mad lately.
In a posting on their official Web site (www.limpbizkit.com), Durst said the band will fuel their next album with anger brought out recently by a wave of Bizkit hate.
“There is so much Hatorade being drunk out there,” Durst wrote in the message. “Every magazine, paper, band, etc. is on a Limp hating rampage and it is really giving us the fire. We have so much built up inside and we wanna let it all out on the new album.”
Durst wrote that the band is anxious to get started on the record, which he has said will be very different from Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.
“We have to take you on a venture you’ve never been on before,” Durst wrote. “Think ‘post nuclear’ and you’ll, maybe, see the landscape we are visioning.”
Durst has said pre-production for their fourth album will begin this summer, though he is also scheduled to begin directing the movie “Life Without Joe” in September. Interscope did not have details on the band’s recording schedule.
In the message, posted June 10, the singer/rapper said Limp Bizkit has cut off all press interviews worldwide and will provide fans with news updates when they need them.
“Unless you hear the news from us, it’s probably somewhat deformed,” Durst wrote. “All we need to do is stay in tuned with you and where your head is at.”
Durst also commented on the forthcoming video for “Boiler,” which he said would air in early July. The clip for the single, which was selected by fans through a poll on the band’s Web site, was shot in Lisbon, Portugal, and incorporates live footage along with concept scenes.
“I think you’re gonna bug out when you see it,” Durst wrote. “It’s something we’ve never done before.”
Also on the posting, Durst urged readers to check out Staind’s chart-topping new album Break the Cycle. He followed his plug for the band – for which he helped get a record deal – with what could be interpreted as a dis.
“If you see the guys in Staind, please tell them I said hello,” he wrote. “It seems as if they don’t remember me very well lately.”
Interscope Records was unable to confirm the posts were written by Durst, as Limp Bizkit are touring Europe. The label did say that past site postings attributed to Durst have indeed been penned by the frontman.
