Limp Bizkit has begun work on its first album since the surprising return of guitarist Wes Borland in August. The group is believed to be recording in Northern California with longtime producer Ross Robinson, with an eye on finishing up the sessions by Christmas.

"Los Angeles is too comfortable for us, so we have to leave our everyday lives behind," frontman Fred Durst writes on Bizkit's official Web site. "This music is hungry for our blood, and we have to feed it what it wants."

"I don't regret anything that's happened over the past three years," Durst continues. "It couldn't have happened any other way. I had some time to explore some other things, and after searching I came to the conclusion that this band was not an accident. There is a chemistry here that I haven't found anywhere else. There's an intention and an electricity that exists which is bigger than the individual members, despite their differences. We're very excited about the music we are writing at the moment."

A Limp Bizkit greatest hits album, augmented with new material, is expected in early 2005. The band is also due to return to the road next year, according to Durst.
