(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — As Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland prepares to release the debut album from his new band, Black Light Burns, this summer, it appears that the pioneering rap-rock group led by Fred Durst may be history.
“‘Will I ever work with LB in the future?’ Anything is possible, but that’s not even on the radar at this point,” Borland wrote on the Black Light Burns’ MySpace.com page. “Limp Bizkit is in my past, and I care only about Black Light Burns right now, which is my future.”
In the new band, Borland collaborates with session drummer Josh Freese, Nine Inch Nails collaborator Danny Lohner and keyboardist/programmer Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, according to Billboard.
Black Light Burns’ debut album, “Cruel Melody,” features guest spots from From First To Last vocalist Sonny Moore, vocalist Carina Round, Concrete Blond frontwoman Johnette Napolitano, and Limp Bizkit bassist Sam Rivers.
Borland’s comments give light on the struggling Limp Bizkit, whose 2005 EP, “The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 1,” sold just 88,000 copies in the United States. The band intentionally did not promote or tour in support of the album. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
