Limp Bizkit reforms

Band says it's "disgusted and bored" with popular music

LONDON -- Rap-rock outfit Limp Bizkit has reformed with the original line-up, following an eight-year hiatus.

The Florida band will launch a world tour from late May, including their own headline shows and festival appearances. Limp Bizkit will play across Europe and perform in territories they have not previously toured, including Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic countries. They will also appear at German festivals Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park.

Fred Durst and Wes Borland said in a joint statement: "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."

The band has sold 33 million copies of their first three albums around the world, according to a statement from Universal Music Group's frontline label Polydor in the U.K. A new album, the first featuring the original line-up since 2000's "Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water" (Interscope), is planned.
