The Esoteric ex-drummer joins Wes Borland band

Drummer Marshall Kilpatric, formerly of Today Is The Day, and most recently of The Esoteric, has officially joined Black Light Burns, an alternative outfit fronted by Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit fame. The band also features Danny Lohner (A Perfect Circle). You can check out the group here. The Esoteric officially announced Kilpatric's departure in early-January. Kilpatric has issued the following statement: "I have officially joined Black Light Burns. For anyone not in the know, it is rounded out by Wes Borland, Danny Lohner, and Nick Annis. I am very excited and eager to begin a new chapter amongst artists who I consider innately talented and highly accomplished. I feel as though I finally have found a group comprised of artisans in a dying age where integrity, initiative, and risk are taken for granted and traded for instant gratification and comfort. I cannot wait for everyone to hear, see, and experience what is in store with us. For everyone who has stood by me and been there along the way for all of the obstacles and difficulty, thank you."

I've always thought Wes Borland was cooler than Limp Bizkit. Hopefully this is better than Limp Dick

Speechless, not that the Esoteric was anything special, but man this is like going from shoveling shit to rolling around in it.

Coldchain 2/2/2007 12:39:11 PM

Danny Lohner is a good musician, when did he join APC?

motherfckzombies 2/2/2007 12:59:03 PM

I thought that band was called Big Dumb Bastard or something.

nashvegas 2/2/2007 12:59:09 PM

that whole comment about "finding true artisans".. come on, you worked with Steve Austin. Esoteric wasn't the greatest thing out there, but this guy keeps stepping farther down with each new endeavor.

emoxfag 2/2/2007 1:53:23 PM

AlbinoMim 2/4/2007 1:49:24 PM

Wow. This band is very generic. Lame nu-metal. I kind of expected better, but that's what I get for having expectations. It's like a poor man's NIN.
