STAIND No Longer Have Anything To Do With FRED DURST

STAIND no longer have anything to do with the man who discovered them, LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst.

"We kind of cut our ties with Fred not for any other reason other than wanting to get away from having that label of 'Fred's band'," STAIND drummer Jon Wysocki told Undercover News. "We are not Fred's band. He definitely got us started and got us going on the right foot and brought us to the right people but we had to do it on our own. We had to show people that this is us. You kind of just have to break away after a while."

Fred helped put STAIND on the map at the time of the LIMP BIZKIT debut album "Three Dollar Bill, Y'all". "That was a lot of fun," said Jon. "At that time we really had a chance to hang with those guys. It was more of a party atmosphere, just a lot of fun. It wasn't a pressure situation. We just got up (like we always do) and just played our gig."

STAIND's new album, "14 Shades Of Grey", is due on May 20 through Flip/Elektra Records.
