Den Headz, expect a whole lot more ‘nookie’ from LIMP BIZKIT. Frontman Fred Durst released the following statement earlier today (December 30th):

“LB is joining forces w the unexpected to bring you our best material yet in 2012. Gold Cobra was for the core and our farewell to the corrupt machine. The Unquestionable Truth pt 2 and Stampede of the Disco Elephants are for the masses in ways which are indescribable through text.

We finally feel like ourselves again with no restraints and boundaries preventing us from being who we truly are as a band. The ride thus far has been nothing less than a true rock and roll journey.

We are grateful for every moment and bid the most sincere farewell to those we will now leave behind...
