The original line-up of Limp Bizkit is back from an eight-year hiatus. The group plans to kick off a world tour in the spring on the overseas festival circuit with headline shows sprinkled in throughout Eastern Europe.
The hard rock crew also plans a tour in late May, which will make stops in Russia, Ukraine, and Baltic countries where they have have never played before. Major festivals like Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany are confirmed.
“We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other,” said Fred Durst and Wes Borland in a statement. “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.”
The other original members are Sam Rivers, John Otto and DJ Lethal. A new album, which would be the original group’s first full-length effort since 2000, is planned. Limp Bizkit’s first three albums have sold over 20 million copies in the U.S. and another 13 million in the rest of the world.
