Alternative rock pioneers JANE’S ADDICTION debuted their official brand new single “Irresistible Force”on Tuesday, August 2nd on the world-famous KROQ/Los Angeles morning radio show “The Kevin & Bean Show”. The song - a swirling, moody and epic composition - is taken from the band’s much-anticipated new album THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST. Marking the first new studio album in eight years by Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins, it is due to be released on Tuesday, September 29. The album also features “End To The Lies,” a pre-single teaser track which the band made available to their fans as a free download this past April.
For THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, JANE'S ADDICTION joined forces with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV On The Radio, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album. The band, with Chris Chaney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011.
Coming off a powerful headline performance at the ”Gathering of the Vibes” festival in Bridgeport, CT, JANE’S ADDICTION played an exclusive, private show at Terminal 5 in New York City, in association with YouTube and LG. Not only was the concert streamed live on YouTube, but it was also the first-ever 3-D user-generated concert event. Attendees - including more than 200 lucky ticket holders selected by LG and Jane’s Addiction - were the first to be able to film the show on brand new LG Thrill 4G Devices, then these films were combined into one special 3D 60-minute documentary film which premiered on the LG Thrill 3-D YouTube channel on August 4th.
