New Limp Bizkit Album, Still Sucks, Officially Arriving on Halloween
Looks like Halloween will actually be scary for once: audio terrorists Limp Bizkit are making good on their threat to release a new album this Sunday, October 31.
The band officially announced the album, Still Sucks, via an Instagram video in which guitarist Wes Borland plays a music vlogger named ‘Jake Bacon.’ I assume frontman Fred Durst was behind the camera, sharing all of his insights from directing eHarmony commercials and embarrassing John Travolta movies.
The video is mostly notable for having some audio samples of the record, in case you can’t wait another 48 hours for new Limp Bizkit music. Which I understand. If I was going to the electric chair in two days, I’d probably just wanna get it over with, too.
The group also unveiled the cover art (above) in a separate post.
You can view both posts below.
Go here to listen to the first single from Still Sucks, “Dad Vibes.” It debuted last month.
Still Sucks will be Limp Bizkit’s first album since 2011’s Gold Cobra, which sold a deeply-disturbed 27K+ copies in its first week of release. It was actually supposed to be the first of a pair, but God took pity on our souls, and the second one never materialized.
Then for a long time the band’s next offering was reportedly gonna be called Stampede of the Disco Elephants. Which I assume, given the band’s previous album titles (Chocolate Starfish…, the aforementioned Gold Cobra), is some kind of sex joke I don’t get because I’ve successfully completed the fifth grade.
It’s not clear how much of the Gold Cobra II / Disco Elephants material is on Still Sucks… although given Borland’s assertion that the long-teased new release has been repeatedly shelved because the music doesn’t hold up to Fred Durst’s lofty standards, probably not much.
