Last week, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst teased a Halloween release for the band’s long-awaited new album and showed fans a small snapshot of the cover art. Now, the band have officially announced the album’s release and revealed the entire cover, and man, Limp Bizkit are really going full Limp Bizkit with this one.
The new Limp Bizkit album is titled Still Sucks, and will come out on Halloween 2021, this Sunday. The album is the band’s first since the 2011 release of Gold Cobra. The cover goes in on the stage set by Fred Durst’s recent dad-oriented change in aesthetic, with a happy yet derpy family scene portrayed on the album art.
Guitarist Wes Borland announced the release last night on his Instagram, writing, “Our first album in over a decade comes out this Sunday! Happy Halloween! Limp Bizkit – Still Sucks #limpbizkitstillsucks #limpbizkit @limpbizkit”

Keep your eyes peeled for Still Sucks on Sunday, and happy Halloween!
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.”
