Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland has shared the demos from his scrapped side project, Eat The Day.
Recorded nearly 20 years ago, the instrumentals were released on 8 April in an album called The Demos – listen to the tracks here:
The release was announced by Borland’s brother Scott, who was a member of Eat The Day. In an Instagram post, he wrote, “It’s been nearly 20 years since my brother, Greg Isabell and myself wrote a ton of awesome music, tried and failed to find a vocalist, and then moved on to other things.”
On finally putting out The Demos, he added, “It was probably the most musically focused time of my life and although it’s unfinished work I’m so glad that these demos are going to see the light of day.”
Read the full statement here:
The eight instrumental tracks that make up the record consist of dAdA, The Slow Mile, The Boob, Taste My Gun, Beeblicowcarapis, Nutooupa, Gunship Down and Whalephant – the latter of which was earlier shared by Wes Borland on his Instagram page as a teaser for the full release.
Eat The Day was formed by Wes Borland in 2001, following his departure from Limp Bizkit. Before it was eventually shelved, Borland had unsuccessfully tried to merge it with The Damning Well, his other side project that consisted members from Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle and Filter.
Eat The Day was ultimately shelved in 2003, and the following year, Borland rejoined Limp Bizkit.
