It had been quite some time since we’ve heard serious news on new material from Fred Durst and friends and now the Limp Bizkit frontman is surfacing everywhere. While we were a little worried that Durst may have been experiencing an identity crisis, appearing on the Aresenio Hall Show with Billy Ray Cyrus, the latest tease he’s posted to a cover of Ministry’s “Thieves” indicates an attempt to revisit the band’s more prosperous beginnings. With the relationship between Minstry’s Al Jourgensen and Durst going back a few years, he appears to be serious about covering the 1989 song. It should be noted that Bizkit has been playing the song live for years now, even back in the ’90s at Woodstock ’99. Check out a tease to the song via Fred Durst’s Instagram account below.
While it seemed a new album was about to happen with the band’s release of “Ready To Go” even though the album wasn’t really ready at all, rumblings of Durst enlisting the help of Ross Robinson and Eric Roth on writing may mean Stampede of the Disco Elephants the album’s closer than we’d thought. Lucky us!
