Watch new Fred Durst and DIIV collab ‘Brown Paper Bag’

DIIV and Fred Durst team up for a performance that’s a prelude to an album exploring the depths of modern collapse.


After announcing their fourth album, Frog In Boiling Water, DIIV have just dropped a new performance video for single ‘Brown Paper Bag’, featuring none other than Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. Give it a watch below.

The band aren’t stopping there. They’re gearing up for a tour in the UK and EU starting next month, hitting cities from Utrecht to London. This is all before they start their North American tour, with tickets going on sale soon.

The making of Frog in Boiling Water was tough, taking four years and almost breaking the band apart. But they pushed through, aiming to challenge themselves musically and operate more democratically. Despite the internal struggles, they’ve come out with an album reflecting society’s slow decline under capitalism, drawing inspiration from the “boiling frog” metaphor in Daniel Quinn’s The Story of B.
