Fred Durst Hints at Halloween Release for Limp Bizkit's New Album

Could the cryptic teasing finally come to an end this Hallows' Eve?

The "Dad Vibes" have gotten decidedly spookier: frontman Fred Durst is teasing the tricks and treats of the first new Limp Bizkit album in a decade.

Fruits of the rap-rock group's rebranding labour — led by Durst's new look — might soon be upon us in their full glory. After debuting the single "Dad Vibes" at Coachella this summer and effectively doubling their sales, Limp Bizkit released the studio version of the track at the end of last month. While they said their new songs would be coming out in rapid succession, it seems as though the outfit may have changed their minds in terms of rollout plans.

In an Instagram Story, Durst — who's already been dropping hints about song titles and the number of tracks — has declared with brevity: "Instead, all 🎃's will drop on Halloween." 

We can only assume that the jack-o'-lantern emoji somehow signifies new music, especially given the sneak peek at the album artwork included in the post. Who's to say if carved pumpkins have anything to do with the actual content of the LP or if they somehow serve as a metaphor (the songs are glowing, ambient lights on the strange, autumnal front porch of our current existence?), but it sounds like we should know more later this week.

Limp Bizkit's last album was 2011's Gold Cobra, so fans have waited 10 long years for another full-length offering.

The band's summer Post Pandemic Popup Party tour didn't exactly go to plan, so it wouldn't be shocking if things didn't shake out exactly as we might reasonably speculate. However, this is a great reminder that dressing up as Durst's dad vibes is definitely a Halloween option if you're not feeling the inevitable surplus of Squid Game costumes

Maybe the autobiographical movie Puddle of Mudd's Wes Scantlin wants to do with Durst will be a horror flick?
