Back in September, rap-rock unkillables Limp Bizkit released the official audio of “Dad Vibes,” the first single from their upcoming album. Now, frontman Fred Durst has hinted at a Halloween release for Bizkit’s long-awaited new record, and has shared a first glimpse of its cover art.
As reported by Loudwire, over the weekend, Durst took to his Instagram and asked his fans to help him determine whether he should drop another Limp Bizkit track next, or just release the band’s whole album, writing, “Should I drop a new song? Maybe ‘Turn It Up, Bitch’ or ‘Goodbye’? Hmm, or should I just drop the whole new album, all 12 songs? What do you think?”
He eventually posted the image below, with the caption, “Instead, all [pumpkin emoji]’s will drop on Halloween…Album Cover Piece 1.”
Will Limp Bizkit’s new record drop this Sunday on All Hallows Eve proper, or will we just get another taste of new music, or an album announcement? More as we know it.
While fans may be excited to hear the studio version of “Dad Vibes,” they’ll unfortunately have to wait to see the single performed live once more. Last month, Limp Bizkit canceled their remaining tour dates with Spiritbox, claiming that the precautions against COVID being enacted by the newly-opening live music industry are still subpar.
“In short, the system is still very flawed,” said Fred Durst in an interview. “Even if the performers, crews, staff, and promoters do their best to ensure safety on and behind the stage, that doesn’t ensure the safety of the audience as a whole. We are all in this together, and we all — individually and as a whole — have to make our best efforts to be as responsible and proactive as possible moving forward to combat and stop spreading COVID.”
