Top US rock band Limp Bizkit today axed a UK festival appearance this summer to concentrate on their new album.

The band, led by Fred Durst, were due to play the Download Festival at Donington Park at the end of the month.

He said: “Sometimes you just have to go with the flow of creativity and we’re doing just that.”

The band, currently one of the world’s biggest rock acts, are in the studio working on a new release called Panty Sniffer, due out in September.

Festival promoter Clear Channel Entertainment said it was “disappointed to lose Limp Bizkit”.

The two-day event on May 31 and June 1 will still feature acts such as Iron Maiden, Murderdolls Marilyn Manson, Ministry and Audioslave.
