Rap-rock heroes Limp Bizkit have lined up dates for their free Napster-sponsored tour, which kicks off July 4 in Chicago.

The group will bring hip-hop rockers Cypress Hill along for the series of free concerts that also will hit Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston, New York, Dallas, Denver, San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles. The band will play multiple-night stands in each city, admitting fans on a first-come, first-served basis. Venues have not been announced yet.

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst said the group's third album, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water, is only halfway done but that the band has already started to roll out new songs in concert.

"The music's incredible," Durst said of the new material. "I feel like the music's really good. I hope people like it. I'm always worried that they're not gonna like it, and I feel like I'm really in touch with our generation, become a part of our generation, this 'generation next,' or this 'generation strange,' whatever we're being stereotyped as."

The album is expected to surface in late summer or early fall.
