LIMP BIZKIT Hire RICK RUBIN To Produce 'Less Is More'

August 26, 2002

LIMP BIZKIT have finally confirmed what has been rumored for weeks — they have hired American Recordings founder Rick Rubin to produce their new album, tentatively titled Less Is More.

As the group's fans may recall, Rubin — whose past production credits include albums by RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, SLAYER, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, and THE CULT — was originally tapped to produce LIMP BIZKIT's last effort, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water, but was dismissed after less than a week's work. "It just didn't work out," said frontman Fred Durst at the time.

The band has recorded more than 20 songs in the last month with Rubin, according to a report posted at Bassist Sam Rivers and Durst are reportedly filling in for departed guitarist Wes Borland during the sessions, which are expected to last several months. An early 2003 release is anticipated.
