ARTIST GROUP INTERNATIONAL SIGNS “LIMP BIZKIT” FOR NORTH AMERICAN REPRESENTATION
Los Angeles, CA – Artist Group International (AGI) announced the signing of Grammy-nominated rap-metal group LIMP BIZKIT for North American representation. AGI’s Dennis Arfa, Mike Arfin and Nick Storch will be the responsible agents along with their team of agents. Limp Bizkit plans to tour Summer, 2022.
“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.”
Fred Durst, lead vocalist and band manager commented, “I’m very excited to be teaming up with AGI for this next exciting chapter in Limp Bizkit’s journey. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this confident about our team on the field.”
Limp Bizkit is an infectious spirit. Any other details are merely salad dressing. They are distributing their new album with Suretone Records and ADA later this year and have leaked their new song “Dad Vibes” during an explosive set at the 2021 Lollapalooza.
