The lads from Limp Bizkit are setting up quite a busy summer for themselves.
Not only is the band slated to appear at Woodstock '99; it'll also be dropping its second album, "Significant Other," on June 22, after which it will hit the road for not one, but two separate tours.
Limp will tour in tandem with Kid Rock and Staind before going out later this summer for its virgin stint as headliner of the 1999 Family Values Tour (while festival founder Korn is sequestered in a studio, recording another album).
According to frontman Fred Durst, the recording of "Significant Other" gave him the chance to approach one of his rap heroes: Method Man, who guests on the track "Shut the F*** Up."
"[A] straight hip-hop track with me and Meth, I think, is what people want," Durst told MTV News. "I think if Method Man came on our album to jam, they wouldn't want us to do some crazy-rocky-eclectic-artsy
song to see what Meth and Limp could create that's crazy. What people want to hear is that 'I came to bring the pain' thing... and 'They call me Big John Stud/My middle name Mud.' I mean, that's what you want to hear, and that's what you got." [RealVideo]
In addition to Meth, the upcoming record boasts guest vocals from Eminem on "Turn It Loose," and the track "Nobody Like Me" features Korn's Jonathan Davis and resurrected Stone Temple Pilot Scott Weiland.
As for this year's Family Values, no other acts have yet been confirmed (see "Limp Bizkit Leading Family Values, But Who Will Join Them?"), but we'll keep you posted.
