Jane’s Addiction To Start Recording New Album In January


Alternative rock band Jane’s Addiction have gone through so many iterations, and yet they’re still taking outside opinion to heart. The band reunited for a tour with Nine Inch Nails with original bassist Eric Avery, but then worked on new material and Eric quit. The album that resulted, The Great Escape Artist, has apparently left the band wanting more. The next Jane’s Addiction album will begin recording in January.

Vocalist Perry Farrell said he was trying to distance himself from the previous album, saying “[The Great Escape Artist] didn’t make a big enough splash. If it would have made a bigger splash I would have continued [its themes]. [The new album]’s not going to be [a continuation of] The Great Escape Artist. I had thought that it would be a great idea. However, I just came up with this other twist to doing the next record. At this point I want to start fresh with a fresh angle.

This marks two albums they’ve distanced themselves from (the other being Strays), and those are the only two albums without Eric. The pattern here is people consider “true” Jane’s Addiction the original lineup. I’ll still be keeping my ears open for this new album when it comes, but I feel lucky for having caught the reunion tour that had all the original parties involved.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
