BLACK LIGHT BURNS, the avant-garde musical alter ego of Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland have announced they are to play their first ever run of UK Shows, following the release of their most recent LP THE MOMENT YOU REALIZE YOU’RE GOING TO FALL, via Ninetone/Membran in August this year.

Wes Borland is excited to return to our shores and showcase Black Light Burns to the UK – he comments; “Europe, Europe, my dear Europe, how I've enjoyed spending my summers for the last 4 years wandering your cobblestone streets. Touring with Limp Bizkit across your continent always awards lots of days off spent falling in love with your beautiful cities and it's heartbreaking to leave every single time.... but I'm about to step foot on your soil again very soon and as Short Round says in 'Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom' there's "No time for love Dr. Jones!" 21 shows in 23 days and we might even be adding more! Consider the 'candles of rock' (copyright Dean Del Rey 2011) lit at both ends! We can't wait!!” A limited number of Ticketless VIP packages for these dates will be available for these dates. The package includes a VIP-only t-shirt, poster and laminate as well as early admission into the venue to watch the Black Light Burns soundcheck. Everyone who attends a Black Light Burns concert is invited to meet Wes and the rest of the band after the show at the merch booth.

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, followed by the release of their latest LP "The Moment You Realize Your'e Going To Fall"
