BLACK LIGHT BURNS released its debut album, “Cruel Melody”, in 2007 through I Am: Wolfpack, the record label headed by producer Ross Robinson (KORN, SLIPKNOT, SEPULTURA, SOULFLY, LIMP BIZKIT). The group’s original recording lineup featured Danny Lohner (NINE INCH NAILS), Josh Eustis (PUSCIFER) and Josh Freese (WEEZER, A PERFECT CIRCLE, GUNS N’ ROSES, DEVO). An LP/DVD of unreleased B-side material, “Cover Your Heart And The Anvil Pants Odyssey”, followed in 2008. In 2009, after a yearlong stint playing guitar for MARILYN MANSON, Wes and BLACK LIGHT BURNS hit the road for an extended run with industrial powerhouse COMBICHRIST, and contributed the track “I Want You To” to the “Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans” soundtrack. BLACK LIGHT BURNS took a temporary hiatus while Borland stayed busy with the reformed LIMP BIZKIT, who embarked on an ongoing world tour supporting their recently released LP “Gold Cobra”. In 2012, BLACK LIGHT BURNS returned, to the delight of fans, with the track “It Rapes All In Its Path” on the “Underworld: Awakening” soundtrack.
