Limp Bizkit made an announcement today regarding their future. And no, it’s not what everyone was hoping. Instead of going back on hiatus, his statement promises not only another album, but two. I guess this is the “huge news” that Durst referred to that was coming in December. In a statement released via his Twitter account, Durst said the following:
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. LB will start releasing new material unethically and affectively as soon as the deals are signed and sealed in January as attorneys start their holiday vacations months before the holidays even begin.
And btw, our video POOP will finally find its way in its entirety to your eyeballs soon enough.
Gracias, LB 2012
Stampede of the Disco Elephants? It’s not like it’s a worse album title than Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water, but it’s close. And a follow-up to 2005’s The Unquestionable Truth pt 1 is the sequel nobody demanded, kind of like Basic Instinct II. But hey, if the band is happy and can make some money without being on a major label, good for them. The relative success of Gold Cobra proved they still have fans, and the slightly disturbing thought that bands like Emmure look up to Bizkit like other bands look up to Pantera ensures that there’s still an audience out there for some nostalgic rap-metal. And if you’ve accused Bizkit of putting out poop in the past, 2012 will be your year to actually see it on video.
