Limp Bizkit promise ‘explosive’ new album

Fred Durst and co also want to headline Download

Limp Bizkit are set to head into the studio to record their first album in four years.

The band, who made their live UK return at Download at the weekend (June 12), said they are hoping to release the follow-up to ‘The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1)’ before the end of the year.

“We’re getting together our demos right now and we’re going to go in and record them,” said frontman Fred Durst.

He added: “I’m having a great feeling about going in and doing our record, more than I have about any of our albums before.

“It’s not going to be a watered down version of Limp Bizkit, it’s going to be a more explosive, more addictive, more driven version of Limp Bizkit.”

The singer also denied their return was a “cash in”, and that the nu-metallers plan to headline Download in the near future – despite cancelling a headline slot in 2003.

He told BBC Newsbeat: “This isn’t a reunion, this is a comeback. We’re here to take it back and to sit on top of the mountain again. We’re going to come back to Download and headline it.”
