In an effort to continue their tradition of remaining close to their fans, Fred Durst, DJ lethal, Sam Rivers, and John Otto will embark on a tour of the U.S. to hold a series of guitarist auditions and “fan parties.”

The group intends on keeping the fan parties loose in format. “It’s just a great chance for us to be with our fans,” says Durst. The parties will be different in each city. “We could be at a club, at your house, at the mall, at your high school, who knows,” said Durst.

The guitarist auditions will offer the opportunity for talented young players from across the country to have a unique opportunity to join one of the largest rock bands in the world. “All I have to say is if you got it… bring it on!” says Durst. The tour will look to stop in a minimum of 8 and as many as 14 markets. The band would like to include the following cites: Boston, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and will tentatively start in late November. “Listen to your local Rock or Alternative station for details… and get there any way you can,” says Durst. Additional details will be posted on the Limp website.

Limp Bizkit’s upcoming release, “New Old Songs,” will be in stores Dec. 4 and features re-mixes of their top songs by master producers The Neptunes, Timbaland, P Diddy, DJ Priemere, Butch Vig, DJ Lethal, William Orbit, and others. The Album also features guest performers Xzhibit, Everlast, Eve, 8-Ball, Bubba Sparxxx, and E-40.
