A music video by famed director, Agata Alexander, for the first official single, 'How To Look Naked,' is currently in production and will be available soon.
Black Light Burns released its debut, 'Cruel Melody,' in 2007 featuring Danny Lohner (NIN), Josh Eustis (Puscifer) and Josh Freese (Guns N’ Roses), and a follow-up LP of covers and B-side material, 2008’s, Cover Your Heart, and an accompanying DVD entitled, The Anvil Pants Odyssey.
In 2009, Borland 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. BLB took a temporary hiatus while Borland stayed busy with a world tour with the reformed Limp Bizkit.
In 2012 BLB returned, to the delight of fans, with the track, 'It Rapes All In Its Path,' on the Underworld: Awakening soundtrack, and the announcement of the impending release of a new LP.
