Wes Borland on new Black Light Burns: ‘This is a really personal record for me’

Limp Bizkit on again, off again guitarist Wes Borland has a side band called Black Light Burns, and he sings lead vocals for the group, too. The band dropped their debut full-length, “Cruel Melody,” way back in 2007, and now, the guys are finally inching towards releasing their sophomore studio LP.

Black Light Burns have signed a new, worldwide record deal with Rocket Science Ventures / THC: Music, so it seems Borland and company finally have a proper home. The long-awaited sophomore disc, “The Moment You Realize You’re Going to Fall,” is scheduled to hit stores this summer.

With Borland holed up with Black Light Burns fun, does this mean Limp Bizkit will be kaput for a while? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: Borland is passionate about this new Black Light Burns set.

“This is a really personal record for me,” Borland said in an official statement. “I spent three years writing it and trying to find the right home, and I am confident it’s the best Black Light Burns record yet. I’m really looking forward to working with THC/Rocket Science to get it out to the fans. It’s really exciting to be working with a great team who loves the band; I couldn’t be happier.”

Black Light Burns took a lengthy hiatus over the past few years, and the break gave Borland time to get back with the reformed Limp Bizkit, who trekked the globe last year in support of Fred Durst and company’s latest album, “Gold Cobra.” Black Light Burns stayed active on the soundtrack front, though, contributing industrial metal-flavored tracks to the “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans” and “Underworld: Awakening” soundtracks.
