The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) is an EP by the American nu metal band Limp Bizkit.[1] Released in 2005, it is the first release by the band to feature guitarist Wes Borland since he rejoined the group. He had left the band in 2001, and their previous album Results May Vary, was recorded without him. Drummer John Otto was absent for much of the album, and Sammy Siegler took over drumming duties for the band.

The EP differs from the band's established sound and lyrical subject matter by focusing on darker subjects and featuring a more experimental sound. The album's lyrics focus on subjects such as propaganda, Catholic sex abuse cases, terrorism and fame. Released without advertising and promotion, The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) sold 37,000 copies during its first week in the United States, peaking at No. 24 on the Billboard 200. Reviews were mixed, but Borland's return to the band was praised, as was the new musical direction, which was considered to be ambitious.

After signing with Cash Money Records in early 2012, the band revealed that they are planning to release a sequel, titled The Unquestionable Truth (Part 2).[2]

Background

In October 2001, Durst released a statement on their website stating that "Limp Bizkit and Wes Borland have amicably decided to part ways. Both Limp Bizkit and Borland will continue to pursue their respective musical careers. Both wish each other the best of luck in all future endeavors."[3] The band recorded their next album Results May Vary with Snot guitarist Mike Smith.[4] In 2004, Borland rejoined Limp Bizkit, and the band announced that they would begin recording a new album, The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1).[4] Sammy Siegler took over drumming duties for the band for much of the album. Every song on the EP has their titles beginning with the definite article word "the".
