It looks as though the new Limp Bizkit album might be closer than we think, with the band delivering a snippet of new material in France recently.
For many years now, Limp Bizkit fans have eagerly awaited the release of the band’s sixth (and regrettably-titled) album, Stampede Of The Disco Elephants.
Presumably in the works since 2011, Fred Durst explained in 2017 year that he had actually leaked part of the album back in early 2016, though this has never been verified. During this time though, we’ve received a few singles from the group, and heard rumours of the record eventually being released.
Late last year though, Limp Bizkit revealed that they would be hitting the studio to work in earnest on the album, before guitarist Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland gave fans a taste of some of the new riffs that will be heard in the near future.
Now, fans have been given a snapshot into what the album will sound like during a show in France.
Check out some of ‘Wasteoid’ by Limp Bizkit:
On Saturday night, Limp Bizkit found themselves in France to perform a 16-song set full of classics and covers. However, before things got too hectic, fans were treated to something they’d not heard before.
As the band walked onstage, the ambient sounds of Wes Borland’s accomplished guitarwork could be heard, accompanying the opening remarks of frontman Fred Durst.
While some may have thought that this piece of music might have just been something made up on the spot to serve as an introduction for the night, things soon started getting a bit heavier, with a crushing section sparking both energetic moshing from fans, and memories of Limp Bizkit’s early days.
“Yes, we’re giving you a little taste of our new album right here,” Fred Durst explained to the crowd during the slow part of the track. “You understand now, right? You understand about that, right?”
Reportedly titled ‘Wasteoid’, there’s no word as to when we’ll hear the new record as yet, but a recent interview with Billboard saw Durst explain the band are going to release the album once they truly feel they are happy with the material.
“If it means something to me, I can say it. If it doesn’t, there’s no reason for me to chalk it up and put it out,” Durst explained. “I think with Limp Bizkit and our peers, we’re the band that kind of hasn’t been doing anything, except for waiting on that message.
“And there’s something really beautiful about the reward, the payoff that’s happening. We’re just kind of gonna be us and stay us because I don’t think we know how to do anything else.”
