DJ Boney B has developed a rabid following in the national underground scene, developing a community of listeners who are anxious to see him go to the next level.

Limp Bizkit are in the middle off their 2009 “Unicorns N Rainbows” tour, which has so far rolled across Europe and Eastern Europe, wowing Bizkit-starved fans in 20 countries. Of their explosive June 12th show at the UK’s Download Festival, one reviewer noted: “Within seconds, the staccato riff of ‘Break Stuff’ had regressed everyone to a screaming teen” and that “every song provoked roars of approval, every line of ‘Nookie’ belted out as if the crowd had written it.” Heavy-music bible Kerrang! anointed Limp Bizkit with their April cover.
Fred Durst, Wes Borland, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and DJ Lethal are gearing up to record their first new studio album with the original line-up since 2000's worldwide 12x-platinum Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. As Durst recently told the NME: "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 <http://www.nme.com/artists/limp-bizkit> , it's going to be a more explosive, more addictive, more driven version of Limp Bizkit <http://www.nme.com/artists/limp-bizkit> ."
Flip/Interscope Records will announce more details and a release date in the coming months. The band's first three albums have sold more than 20 million copies in the U.S. alone, and another 13 million in the rest of the world.
