Limp Bizkit Frontman Fred Durst for New Single “Self Care”

We Are Band Nerds teams up with Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst for new single “Self Care”. This is the first song we have heard from We Are Band Nerds since their EP release , and it is a great way to start. The track features Fred Durst spitting rhymes about the importance of self care, which is something everyone can benefit from hearing more often.

“We wanted to write a song that was more personal than anything we’ve done before, and we knew Fred would be the perfect person to collaborate with,” said guitarist Dylan Beal. “He has such an incredible voice and he really helped us push ourselves as musicians.”

The song is about taking care of yourself and not letting anything stand in your way. It’s a universal message for everyone, but specifically aimed at those who have struggled with mental health issues or feeling like they don’t have their shit together.

We Are Band Nerds is the brainchild of vocalist/guitarist Josh Becker, who wanted to create a project that combined all of his favorite things: music, passion, and a sense of humor. The band boasts six members — two guitarists (Josh Becker & Brett “The Wizard” Wright), two bassists (Justin Hernandez & Jordan Lewis), a drummer (Dan “The Machine” McLain) and saxophonist extraordinaire Braden Higgins.
