Universal’s Interscope definitely has room to squeeze Van Halen into its camp, given that the company has just parted ways with Limp Bizkit, seemingly because of good old “creative differences”. Some are reporting that the band have been dropped, though the band’s frontman and one-time Senior Vice President of Interscope Records Fred Durst insists he is happy with the turn of events.

He told the Poolside With Dean Delray podcast: “One of the things with [new record] ‘Gold Cobra’ was that it was a record for us to do for ourselves, for the core fans, for some of the people that we know in the industry. It wasn’t our step forward to make a big pop, smash radio record; we just didn’t want to make that record at that time. We have been working for a while now to re-navigate where we are going to take Limp Bizkit and finally we have been able to get off our label and become independent”.
