LIMP Bizkit will be Rollin' into Knebworth House for next month's Sonisphere Festival.

The chart-topping nu-metal group were last night (Tuesday) added to the inaugural rock event planned for the Hertfordshire stately home on August 1-2.

After a storming set at this year's Download Festival at Donington, Sonisphere organisers have quickly recruited the reformed American band.

Fred Durst and co will perform on the Metallica day - Sunday, August 2 - at Knebworth.

Limp Bizkit topped the British charts in 2001 with Rollin' and also had a worldwide smash with Take A Look Around, the theme from Tom Cruise film Mission Impossible 2.
