BLACK LIGHT BURNS To Release Two Albums This Year

Former LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland has posted the following update on his BLACK LIGHT BURNS project:

"We're mixing the covers album during the last week of February. As soon as we're done with that, we're starting drum tracks on 15 new original songs for album number 2. I'm producing the second BLACK LIGHT BURNS record, so don't be surprised if you hear a lot less keyboard/programming and a lot MORE guitar/bass/drums.

"The new stuff is more aggressive on the whole than 'Cruel Melody' was, with a sound that's similar to the production of the yet to be heard 'Cover Your Heart and The Anvil Pants Odyssey'. That being said, there are still some mellow moments, but they do not hold on for as long as they do on 'Cruel Melody'. The hope is to put the covers/DVD out by June and the next record out by November while getting a few tours in there too. We're working our asses off to make all this happen according to plan."

BLACK LIGHT BURNS' upcoming "covers" album will include the following songs:

PJ HARVEY - "Rid of Me"
JESUS LIZARD - "The Art of Self Defense"
INXS - "Devil Inside"
SWANS - "I am the Sun"
FIONA APPLE - "On the Bound"
LARD - "Forkboy"
BIGDUMBFACE - "Bleed Red Head on Fire"

Borland previously stated about the CD, "[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?"

"Cruel Melody" was released in June 2007 via producer Ross Robinson's new label I Am: Wolfpack.
