Limp Bizkit Reuniting Back For A Reunion Tour

Limp Bizkit, an American nu-metal pioneer, are reuniting back with their original band member after dormant for 8 years.

Fred Durst, Wes Borland, Sam Rivers, John Otto and DJ Lethal plan for a reunion tour and new album for their reunification according to a statement from Interscope Records. Even tough the tour schedule are not yet confirmed, the band will start a world tour in this spring, including Eastern Europe and German festival.

In a joint statement, Durst and Borland said: "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."

Formed in 1995 in Florida, Limp Bizkit was known for their UK number one single "Rollin" from "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water" album that set a record for highest week-one sales of a rock album with just over one million copies sold in the U.S. in its first week of release.
