If you thought (hoped? prayed?) you'd heard the last of Fred Durst and company, think again.

Limp Bizkit, the nü-metal act fronted by the former tattoo artist, has announced that all five original members are reuniting for a world tour set to launch in the spring.

Per a statement from their label, Interscope Records, Durst and pals plan to hit the road mainly because they're "disgusted and bored" with the current state of music. They also plan to go back into the studio and get cracking on a new album, their first since 2000's Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water, which spawned the hit "Rollin'."

"Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back," the band said.

With Durst on vocals, guitarist Wes Borland, bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto and turntablist DJ Lethal, Limp Bizkit skyrocketed to fame with their 1997 debut, Three Dollar Bill, Yall$, which went double-platinum. But things had soured by Starfish, and the band's last release was 2004's critically maligned EP, The Unquestionable Truth (Part I).

The new trek is said to include a number of festival appearances in Europe, among them Germany's Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park.
