Black Light Burns Reveal ‘How To Look Naked’ Music Video
Black Light Burns, the avant-garde alter ego of Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, have released an extended music video for the track, “How To Look Naked,” the first single from the band’s sophomore release, The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall. The video, which was directed by Agata Alexander, has already been viewed more than 5,000 times and is recommended for mature audiences only. It can be seen exclusively on the Black Light Burns Vimeo channel.
Black Light Burns kicked off the first leg of its U.S. tour in support of the new album last night in Lancaster, Calif. When asked about his anticipation of the run with supporting acts, Psychostick and The Witch Was Right, Borland commented, “We're gonna get down, boogie woogie, do it the way we do it. Hands are encouraged to feel up, but not be thrown up. Do not say ‘ho’ if I say ‘hey.’ Nobody will literally have their head ripped off. The roof will remain where it is during the entire show. During the set, we encourage everyone to be the opposite of dressed. Let's smile a lot and make it look like we're having a good time just in case they're watching…”
The band recently teamed up with Indaba Music, the leading online community of musicians and marketplace for music opportunities, to launch the “Scream Hallelujah” Remix Contest, offering fans the opportunity to flex their creative muscles. One Grand Prize Winner will win $500, a Charvel guitar, hand painted by Borland, and a signed vinyl copy of The Moment You Realize You're Going To Fall. Five runner-ups will receive a signed Black Light Burns vinyl. Enter the contest at:http://www.indabamusic.com/opportunities/black-light-burns-scream-hallelujah-remix-contest to download the stems and get started. Entries will be collected until October 9th, and winners will be announced on November 6th.
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 theUnderworld: 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.
Borland and co. recently launched a new website, blacklightburnsofficial.com, complete with a free download of the album track, “Splayed.”
