Time to dust off those red hats, Limp Bizkit is back!

I’m starting to get a bit nervous, like checking my calender every minute nervous. After all, it’s 2009 and both Blink-182 and Limp Bizkit have appeared in the headlines over the last week, and it wasn’t because of some rehab stint or an overweight Fred Durst sighting.

Yes, just days after Blink announced its reunion plans, the lovely five-piece Jacksonville, Florida based outfit that had us doing it all for the nookie back in 1999 is following suit. According to a posting appearing on the band’s website, the original lineup of Limp Bizkit (Durst, Wes Borland, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and DJ Lethal) will end their eight year hiatus – jeez, I’m getting old. It’s been eight years already!? – to “ring their world back to ours.” Per Mr. Durst and Mr. Borland:

“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.”

How thoughtful…

The reunion will kick off this spring with a European headlining tour, which will include dates in Russia and Ukraine, along with appearances at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park. A U.S. tour is also planned (all dates are still forthcoming), as is a new album.

Needless to say, it’s time to bust out that red Yankees cap…
