Limp Bizkit are confirmed to reunite, hit the road for a world tour, which will be kicked off in spring, and record a new studio album this year.
Limp Bizkit will be reuniting for a spring world tour and new studio album. Confirming the news are the band's vocalist Fred Durst and guitarist Wes Borland in a joint statement on their official website.
"We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other," so the statement read. "Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back."
Fred and Wes furthermore explain that they will kick off their tour by playing in several international festivals including ones held in Eastern Europe and Europe. After that, they promise to perform in Russia, Ukraine, and the Baltic countries in late May. Details on their tour dates are still in the works and expected to be announced later.
In addition to plotting world tour, this band also plan to enter recording booth and work on new materials for their new studio album. "A new album, which would be the original group's first full-length effort since 2000, is also planned," so they shared.
Wes Borland left Limp Bizkit in 2001 to pursue his own music. He then rejoined the band in 2004 and recorded a mini album "The Unquestionable Truth, Pt. 1" with the band. However, he left again shortly thereafter and Limp Bizkit have been on hiatus since then.
