Black Light Burns, the avant-garde alter ego of Limp Bizkit guitarist, Wes Borland, has released its sophomore album, The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall, today via Rocket Science/THC: Music. Fans can stream the record in its entirety this week on AOL.com at this location >
A music video by famed director, Agata Alexander, for the album’s first official single, “How To Look Naked,” is currently in production and will be available soon.
Last week the band announced a string of headlining tour-dates, “Black Light Burns U.S. Tour: Chapter One,” set to launch on September 13th 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 touring schedule has been expanded since the dates were announced last week. A full list of confirmed shows can be seen below.

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.
Borland and co. recently launched a new website, blacklightburnsofficial.com, complete with a free download of the album track, “Splayed.”
