Guitarist Wes Borland has returned to Limp Bizkit to work on the group's next album - three years after he left.

Visitors to the band's official website were treated to the information, with a photo collage showing Borland in a studio with his former bandmates above Friday's (13AUG04) date.

Borland's return pushes his former replacement, MIKE SMITH, out of the lineup, and Durst has no regrets.

Durst tells the Limp Bizkit fan site WWW.THEARMPIT.NET,"We are very content with Mike being gone.

"We are the type of people that stay true to our family and our instincts and at any moment will act on intuition as a whole. Mike wasn't the guy. We had fun playing with him, but always knew, in the back of our minds, that he wasn't where we needed him to be mentally.

"On that note, you can assume that the s*** we are writing now is f***ing powerful and very emotionally laced with reality..."

Borland had left the band in 2001, fearing he was selling out. Smith joined Limp Bizkit in April 2003.

But it could be a while before fans get to enjoy the fruit of Limp Bizkit's work with Borland, as their anticipated album will not be released in February (05), as planned.

Durst adds, "Completion isn't on the radar. We do not work that way. We are being driven at speed by our passion and any people or persons who cannot comprehend that will be left in the cold."
