BLACK LIGHT BURNS mainman Wes Borland (ex-LIMP BIZKIT) previously stated about the set, "[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 four videos 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?"

Watch a couple of trailers for "Cover Your Heart and The Anvil Pants Odyssey" below.

"Cruel Melody" was released in the U.S. in June 2007 via producer Ross Robinson's new label I Am: Wolfpack. The CD will be issued in Europe on June 20.

Borland recently dismissed reports that he has joined FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, the new band formed by KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer.

"I'm not in Munky from KORN's new band," Wes said. "I played on two songs, and am doing the artwork, but I'm not in the band and apparently there was a press release that I was told made it sound like I'm a member. The only band I'm in is BLACK LIGHT BURNS."

Borland performed with reactivated Japanese rockers X JAPAN at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan on March 28 and March 29.
