The former Limp Bizkit and current Black Light Burns guitarist Wes Borland has joined the Marilyn Manson band.
At a press conference ahead of the band's 15 August performance at the ETP festival in Seoul, South Korea, the self-styled 'God of Fuck' announced the news.
Manson commented: "We have a new guitar player that's gonna play for the first time tomorrow; it's the first time we'll play on stage [together].
"His name is Wes Borland and he used to be in a really terrible band that he left because he felt that it was a destructive force in art, and he has his own band, Black Light Burns, but now he is in Marilyn Manson.
"We don't know how permanent that is, but starting tomorrow will be the first step. So this will be the most indestructible Marilyn Manson."
"He used to be in a really terrible band that he left because he felt that it was a destructive force in art."
The band has also been strengthened by the return to the fold of Manson's long-time bassist and songwriting partner Twiggy Ramirez for the first time since 2002. "I missed having my best friend," Manson said. "We were like brothers."
Meanwhile, Wes Borland's former band-mate Fred Durst has let himself go recently.
