Limp Bizkit scratches tour; Roots collab with Dirty Projectors; Sennheiser dies
By Ally Schweitzer
- Limp Bizkit has canned their North American summer tour in favor of a pared-down arena jaunt this fall. One can speculate as to why a band that hasn't had a hit in almost a decade would cancel an overreaching summer tour, but frontman Fred Durst tweeted yesterday that the gigs were canceled simply because Limp Bizkit "is not an ampitheatre band." He's right-- I was thinking Limp Bizkit was more of a big drunk chili cook-off kind of band. Stick to what ya know.
- Roots drummer Questlove tweeted yesterday that the jammy hip hop group is collaborating with indie rock darlings the Dirty Projectors on their forthcoming album, "How I Got Over." Pitchforkians swooned. The end. The album, which also features Yim James of My Morning Jacket and a Joanna Newsom sample, comes out June 22nd.
- Crank your headphones extra loud today: Audio pioneer Dr. Fritz Sennheiser passed away earlier this week. The German doctor, who founded the Sennheiser audio company in 1945, is credited with making great strides in the world of wireless microphone technology as well as consumer headphones, including the popular open-back headphone. Sennheiser died Monday, a few days after his 98th birthday.
