Limp Bizkit are “rollin’” their way over to Artist Group International. The 1990s rap-metal group has signed with the agency for North American representation. AGI’s Dennis Arfa, Mike Arfin and Nick Storch will be the responsible agents along with their team of agents.
“We are honored to welcome Limp Bizkit to AGI,” said Arfa. “They are one of music’s most energetic headliners and we can’t wait to bring the guys back to audiences around the country next summer.”
The group is expected to tour next summer after announcing in August that it would be canceling all headlining and festival appearances for the remainder of the year.
“Even if the performers, crews, staff, and promoters do their best to ensure safety on and behind the stage, that doesn’t ensure the safety of the audience as a whole,” lead singer Fred Durst explained in a statement to Billboard. “We are all in this together, and we all — individually and as a whole — have to make our best efforts to be as responsible and proactive as possible moving forward to combat and stop spreading COVID.”
Prior to the cancellations, Limp Bizkit made headlines for their hits-laden set at this year’s Lollapalooza. Durst — sans iconic backwards cap, with grey hair (a wig?) and dressed in slacks — and the band trended on Twitter for the entire weekend of their July performance. Billboard‘s Jason Lipshutz wrote that the band ultimately came off as “less like a nostalgia booking and more like a main stage force reawakened after a long hibernation” at the festival.
During the Lollapalooza set, the band performed new song “Dad Vibes” and more new material is expected later this year on Suretone Records and ADA.
“I’m very excited to be teaming up with AGI for this next exciting chapter in Limp Bizkit’s journey,” said Durst in a statement. “It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this confident about our team on the field.”
Limp Bizkit has charted eight entries on the Billboard 200, including a pair of No. 1s – Significant Other and Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. The Grammy-nominated group also garnered 11 hits on the Alternative Airplay tally, with five of those reaching the top 10 — including the No. 1 “Re-Arranged.”
Limp Bizkit is self-managed by Durst.
