After a big public feud via Twitter, DJ Lethal and Fred Durst have reconciled and Lethal is back in Limp Bizkit. Taking to Twitter, Lethal apologized and offered explanations for his behavior earlier this year, stating, “I want to clear the air about limp bizkit. I have had some personal issues over the last few years that have led to some outbursts. [A] lot of the things I said about the band and fred was out of pain and anger. None of which I really meant deep down inside.” Below is a full transcription of the tweets that explain the situation.
Also via Twitter, Lethal mentioned that the band would be entering the studio to began recording the new Limp Bizkit album today (Monday, Oct. 15th). This will be the follow-up to 2011’s Gold Cobra (review).

I want to clear the air about limp bizkit.I have had some personal issues over the last few years that have led to some outbursts.
I lot of the things I said about the band and fred was out of pain and anger. None of which I really meant deep down inside.
So I think I owe it to fred,Wes,sam and john and the fans to really admit the truth. I had some problems. Be it partying on the road.
Talking shit when I was drunk and causing internal conflicts. Today is the day that I can finally be a man and step up and say I’m sorry
The rants are done. And were really embarrassing. I think the guys in the band were actually looking out,I really needed a wake up call.
So to finally come clean is really hard but the weight of the world on my shoulders is even harder to carry around.
I’m in a great place now and want to thank everyone who had my back through the dark times.
So to all the fans and the band. I really was fkd up for a while. I’m sorry. Fred and the band are great people. We’re all human. All love!!
Feels great to finally step up to the plate. I hope we can resolve our issues because I miss my friends and band mates. FC Ty for his help.
The guys in our band are true gentlemen. Giving me a second chance after the stupid shit I talked and the way I acted really shows class.LBF
Now it’s time to step up to the plate and I’m hitting this ball out of the park. I was wondering how it would To be back. AMAZING!grateful
