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). READ MORE
There are a handful of bands that incite such a violent reaction as Limp Bizkit. There’s Nickelback, Insane Clown Posse, U2 and that’s all I can really think of off the top of my head. These bands are generally reviled or mocked endlessly and, for some reason, are wildly successful.

Throughout his distinguished career, Muggs has established a precedent for working hand in hand with artists and creating cohesive bodies of work, rather than spreading around beats from project to project. This rings true once again on Kill Devil Hills.
“I prefer getting in the lab and actually creating projects with people instead of just sending out beat CDs,” explains Muggs. “I’m a producer in the fullest extent, where I like to not only produce an album, but craft an album.
