Limp Bizkit makes surprise comeback with Chirstmas album in March

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

The Jacksonville four-piece’s new record, “The Man in the Red Hat,” debuted at number six on the Billboard Charts last week, fueled by the success of its first single, “Santa Pimp.”

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst acknowledged that the timing of album was a bit late. “We wanted to release the album in February but had problems with production,” he told Stampworthy.

The rapcore band has been without a regular guitarist since the exit of Wes Borland then Mike Smith then Wes Borland again. Guitar work for “Santa Pimp” was provided by jazz legend and fellow Jacksonville-ite, Arthur “Blind” Blake. Blake has been in a slump since his the poor reception of his last album in ’32.

“Santa Pimp” features 12 tracks, “one for each of the days of Christmas” explained turntablist/sampler DJ Lethal. “We used a lot of Bing Crosby and David Bowie samples, but don’t tell him,” he told Stampworthy.

Durst says he’s proud of the record and thinks it’s the band’s best effort to date. “We finally found our stride on this one. Everything just clicked. It’s got something to do with the season,” Durst said.
