Wes Borland Puts Eat The Day On Hold

Former and current Eat the Day guitarist Wes Borland has posted the following message on Eat the Day’s web site:

“Hi everyone, We think it’s time that you knew what’s really going on with [Eat the Day]. We originally opened up the singer search to try and find someone that was unknown. We didn’t want a ‘supergroup’ at that point in time. We went through many auditions and there were a couple of moments in which we thought we had found someone who could fill the slot, only to decide later that the people weren’t right for us. At this point we moved on to phase 2, which was trying to look for someone that was a known singer. This too yielded no results. Then we decided to try something else. We thought we might be able to combine Eat the Day with The Damning Well, having Richard Patrick [Filter] as the singer. Everyone agreed that this might be a good idea, and we began to write together. 4 weeks later, we realized that our creative differences were too great to be able to produce an entire album’s worth of material that we felt good about. So here we are. 2 years after I walked away from Limp Bizkit, we have loads of great instrumental material, and no singer. We think it’s time for something to give. So here’s what we’re doing: This project will go into indefinite hibernation and we will all be working on other projects, coming together again whenever we cross the path of someone who may be an option to fill the vocalist position. (On a personal note, I feel like I have been absent from the music scene for too long, and I need to be participating again. I will be writing with a couple of very cool bands, and producing other various projects. I also plan on possibly joining a band on tour as a full time guitarist next year.)

“I want to thank everyone who has kept up with us for the last 2 years. We will be leaving the website up to continually keep you informed of what we are doing. We will post pictures and news, and hopefully one day inform you that Eat the Day is back. Thanks.”
