On August 2, Jane’s Addiction will debut their brand new single “Irresistible Force” on KROQ FM’s “The Kevin and Bean Show.” The single comes off of their highly anticipated latest album The Great Escape Artist, set to hit stores on Tuesday, September 27.
The Great Escape Artist marks the rock band’s first new studio album in eight years. For this album, Jane’s Addiction band members Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, and Stephen Perkins have joined forces with highly-regarded producers Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) and Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio). Sitek additionally plays bass for many tracks on the album, though bassist Chris Cheney will perform with the band during their recently announced 2011 fall tour. Please see below for a complete listing of tour dates. The Great Escape Artist includes both “Irresistible Force” and “End to Lies,” the pre-single teaser track which the band released as a free download this past April.
Following their headlining performance at “Gathering of the Vibes” Festival in Connecticut, Jane’s Addiction played an exclusive show at Terminal 5 in New York City last night. The concert, streamed live on YouTube, was the first 3D user-generated concert event, and a 3D 60-minute documentary film utilizing clips taken at the Terminal 5 performance will be available for viewing on August 4.
