Not content with his legacy as a skid mark on the dirty underthings of early millennial music, Fred Durst has decided to take his backward red baseball hat out of storage and inflict his signature musical suckage on this hope-filled new era. That’s right, hold on to your chocolate starfishes, Limp Bizkit’s back, baby!
Hot on the heels of this week’s much less offensive news that Blink-182 is reuniting, Durst is hopping on the late-’90s-revival bandwagon and reconvening the band’s original lineup—including early defector Wes Borland, who nearly escaped the shadow of the Bizkit after leaving in 2001 to dabble in somewhat more legitimate industrial music ventures. Durst spilled the beans on his Twitter account—please, feel free to add that to your feed—last night, and now overjoyed music journalists everywhere are receiving this delightfully optimistic press release:
"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."
That powerful and unique energy will manifest itself in a world tour and sprinkling of festival dates, as well as a planned album sometime this year.
