Marilyn Manson Band suck in fresh blood to their clan with the addition of Wes Borland. The band, fronted by Marilyn Manson, announced earlier this week during a press conference in Seoul, South Korea that Borland will serve the duty as their new guitarist and that this format will be their most "indestructible" yet.
Some may recognize the guitarist's name from the past list of line-up that made up the metal band Limp Bizkit. With Borland on board, the band now become a five-piece, consisting of Manson, Borland, Twiggy Ramirez, Ginger Fish and Chris Vrenna. With the new line-up, the band hit the stage together for the first time at the ETP Festival in Seoul on Friday, August 15.
Announcing the recruitment on Thursday, to the press vocalist Manson said, "We have a new guitar player that's gonna play for the first time tomorrow. It's the first time we'll play onstage [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."
According to Blabbermouth, the band are also in the middle of recording a new album that should be out sometime in 2009.
