It turns out that the new look Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has been sporting is thematically consistent with the band’s new music.
At the end of Limp Bizkit’s Lollapalooza set Saturday, Durst, who’s now sporting a white-blonde handlebar mustache and matching ’70s-style hair, introduced the band’s new tune, saying, “This song right here, it’s for you and only you…It’s a song off our new album called ‘Dad Vibes.’ I want to see everybody out there dancing right now.”
Durst, the band and crew then threw t-shirts out to the audience as “Dad Vibes” played over the PA system. It’s hard to make out the lyrics, but the Genius lyrics website lists them as, “Check out the dad with the swag on the flow/ Momma gon’ brag when I walk in the door.”
Another lyric is, “Hot dad ridin’ in on a rhino/ Got the rule on the rap with the dad vibes/ Now everybody bounce with the franchise.”
There’s still no word on when Limp Bizkit’s new album — the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s Gold Cobra — will emerge. As previously reported, in June, guitarist Wes Borland said the band had somewhere around 35 songs recorded instrumentally, but that Durst was holding up the process by recording and then discarding his vocal tracks.
The nu-metallers are in the middle of their Limited Last Minute Post Pandemic Pop Up Party tour. The band also will be performing at several festivals in late August, September and October, including Rocklahoma and Aftershock.
