Crack out the wallet chains and backwards caps, It’s time to rock the mic like it’s 2000 all over again. Limp Bizkit have announced they are to reform, tour and record under their original line-up. And that includes cantankerous guitarist, Wes Borland, who as recently as a few weeks ago was still saying he would never again re-unite with Fred Durst and co.
Of the re-unification with his madball six-stringer, Fred Durst has issued a statement to the press. Unfortunately, he did not deliver it through his unique brand of “fresh rhymes”:
“We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other. 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.”
Despite there being no word as yet as to whether the proposed European jaunt will take in Download festival, seeing as the Bizkit’s itinerary includes Rock Am Ring (often an early barometer of who eventually ends up playing Donington), and the promoters of Download were mooting the Bizkit’s name around as a possible booking a few weeks ago, Thrash Hits would say this is looking increasingly likely. Take it to the Matthews Bridge!
