Fred Durst says he’s “waiting to truly feel and believe what I’m saying,” when it comes to new Limp Bizkit music

Fred Durst and the guys of Limp Bizkit are working on their follow-up to 2011’s “Gold Cobra,” but Durst says  he’s “waiting on the message” before he goes ahead with the new tunes.

“I consciously made an effort a while back to pull back and not milk it, not tour all year long, not put out tons of records,” Durst said in a new interview with Billboard, right before the band’s set at KROQ’s annual Weenie Roast in Dana Point, California, on June 8.

“I feel like a messenger; I’m waiting on the message,” he added. “I’m waiting to truly feel and believe what I’m saying as shallow or deep as you may perceive it, if it means something to me, I can say it. If it doesn’t, there’s no reason for me to chalk it up and put it out.”

Durst added that the members of Limp Bizkit are enjoying this laid-back approach to working on their next record.

“I think with Limp Bizkit and our peers, we’re the band that kind of hasn’t been doing anything, except for waiting on that message,” Durst said. “And there’s something really beautiful about the reward, the payoff that’s happening. We’re just kind of gonna be us and stay us because I don’t think we know how to do anything else. … Actually, believe it or not I still need to be as creative with Limp Bizkit as possible. I suffer a lot from not milking it.”

Right now, Limp Bizkit doesn’t have any shows lined up, so it looks like Durst and company will have plenty of time to work on the new tunes. Keep up with the band at
