On Sunday, Borland—who released one album with the band, 2001's Duke Lion Fights the Terror!!—hinted at the return of Big Dumb Face on Instagram.
Appending his post with the hashtag, “#BigDumbFace2017,” the musician cryptically announced that BDF's in-universe antagonist, Duke Lion, is dead.
“16 years after their first battle,” Borland says in the post, “his story must be told.” It looks like Borland may have a new BDF album in the can for this year.
Borland released Big Dumb Face's debut album after quitting Limp Bizkit in 2001, winding down the side project upon rejoining Fred Durst and company in 2004. During their initial run, Big Dumb Face's lineup included Borland's younger brother, Scott, on second guitar—Scott also contributed keyboard arrangements to Limp Bizkit's first three albums.
