BLACK LIGHT BURNS Working On 'More Guitar-Heavy' New Material

BLACK LIGHT BURNS, the band led by former LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland, has commenced work on material for its second album, tentatively due in early 2009.

Commented Borland, "The new BLACK LIGHT BURNS is a lot more guitar-heavy than it is synth-heavy. More riffs and slightly heavier and upbeat for the most part. The feeling tone is a little more fun and weird compared to the darkness of the first album."

He added, "I'm pretty much always writing, so I think [BLACK LIGHT BURNS' debut album, 2007's 'Cruel Melody'] is basically just a snapshot of a single period of time and what I was going through during that time. The album which is being written now picks up where' Mesopotamia' (the last song that was written for 'Cruel Melody'), left off. The new record is at this point about 11 songs which are all in progress, but close to being finished."

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