Limp Bizkit's Borland Gets Dumb With Side Project

Donning scary makeup isn’t the only hobby of Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, as the six-stringer is readying a full-length release from his side project, Big Dumb Face.

Scheduled for a March 6 release, Duke Lion Fights the Terror!! features Borland – under the pseudonym “The Tongue of Colicab” – performing almost all of the music and vocals on the 12-song album, with a little help from his friends.

A full band consisting of Borland and bassist/brother Scott (performing as “The Cardboard Urinal”), and a drummer and second guitarist (“Joe Couch” and “The Three Headed Demetrian Pup,” respectively) is being assembled for a tour scheduled to kick off in mid-March, according to a spokesperson for the band’s management company. Judging by the over-the-top wackiness involved in the proceedings – including a Speedo-clad Wes cavorting in the video for the first single, “Duke Lion” – one can only assume that the band’s onstage incarnation will be equally fractured.
