LIMP BIZKIT: Photos Of Huntington Concert

LIMP BIZKIT played to a sold-out crowd on April 30 in Huntington, New York at The Paramount, and aside from filming a video for their forthcoming single, "Ready To Go", they debuted a new-look band, with a cool new outfit for guitarist Wes Borland and a bearded Fred Durst. Check out photos from the concert in the YouTube clip below.

DJ Lethal, who last fall rejoined LIMP BIZKIT after apologizing to the band for launching a public feud that began in April 2012 and lasted several months, was not present at the Paramount concert amid reports that he is once again estranged from his bandmates.

LIMP BIZKIT and Lil Wayne's new collaborative single, "Ready To Go", is being released via the band's new label home, Cash Money, Lil Wayne's longtime record company. "It'll be a great way to let the world know that [the band] is a part of us," Cash Money Records co-CEO and founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams told a year ago. "It's rock, but it's hip-hop-rock. I think we got that hip-hop-rock swagger."

When LIMP BIZKIT's deal with Cash Money was announced in March 2012, many wondered why the popular rap label would work with a band whose latest album, "Gold Cobra", has sold less than 100,000 copies in the United States since its June 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "LIMP BIZKIT, to me, is just a perfect match for us," said Birdman. "It was something that [Durst] was interested in doing, and I was already a fan, and I was like, 'Let's do it.' It's good for the brand, it will bring a different look for us, and we're definitely trying to expand on that side of music."

LIMP BIZKIT in 2011 parted ways with Interscope, the label that released all of the band's records thus far through its subsidiaries Flip, Geffen and Suretone Records.

"As both an artist and someone who has signed artists, I can say without a doubt that Cash Money is at the top of their game," Durst said in a statement. "What attracted me to the label is not only their great taste and hustle, but their belief in their artists and the family atmosphere. Slim and Birdman allow their artists to be themselves and encourage creative output and continued development. I look forward to bringing my vision as a director as well as my voice to the label and to LIMP BIZKIT putting out some of our best music to date. . . This is the most at home, comfortable, and confident I have felt in the business."

"Gold Cobra" was LIMP BIZKIT's first CD to feature the original lineup of Fred Durst (vocals), Wes Borland (guitar), Sam Rivers (bass), John Otto (drums), and DJ Lethal since 2000's "Chocolate Starfish And Hot Dog Flavored Water".
