BLACK LIGHT BURNS/ex-LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland has issued the following update:"Plans this year: We [BLACK LIGHT BURNS] started recording a few covers at the end of 2007, and when we finished, we realized that it's super-fun and that we like a lot of songs, so we started to record more and then it hit us. Why not take seven or eight covers, and the two B-sides from 'Cruel Melody' [BLACK LIGHT BURNS' debut album], and a couple of remixes and put it out? No! Let's not just put that out. Let's take that, and pair it with a DVD of fourvideos from 'Cruel Melody' and an hour-plus tour documentary, live footage, a 'making-of' the 'Lie' video, and a bunch of pictures from tour and crap. So we thought about it. It seems like a good idea. We're into it. Do we plan on releasing it soon you ask? Is the atomic weight of cobalt 58.9? "So that's what we're currently working on my friends. I also hear that we finalized everything with a distribution label for Europe. So we will most likely (FINALLY) be making our way over that way. The next record is coming together right now as well."
Among the covers that are expected to appear on BLACK LIGHT BURNS' upcoming release are "Rid of Me" by PJ HARVEY, "The Art of Self Defense" by JESUS LIZARD, and "Devil Inside" by INXS. "Cruel Melody" was released in June 2007 via producer Ross Robinson's new label I Am: Wolfpack.
