A video of Jane’s Addiction recording their new track “End To The Lies” has been made available on the band’s official YouTube channel, which can be viewed here http://www.youtube.com/janesaddiction. “End To The Lies” comes from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘The Great Escape Artist‘, which is set for an August release through Capitol.
On Thursday (April 7th), the band made an MP3 of “End To The Lies” available for free on their web site http://www.janesaddiction.com. “To me, it sounds like an updated Jane’s Addiction as it has the hypnotic repetitive nature of some of our early work combined with a modern approach,” guitarist Dave Navarro told Spinner. “This track was released as a taste of the record for our die-hard fans. I can’t wait for everyone to hear our first single next month and then the album later in the summer.”
Forming in 1985 in L.A., Jane’s Addiction as been firmly embedded in the collective pop culture consciousness for 25 years now. Perry Farrell stands out as one of music’s most forward-thinking and enigmatic frontmen. Dave Navarro remains a veritable guitar god. Drummer Stephen Perkins’ tribal stomp has also influenced a generation of percussionists. The hugely influential Los Angeles-based band has sold in excess of seven million records in the U.S. alone. When lead singer Perry Farrell created the traveling Lollapalooza festival, it galvanized the alternative rock movement and brought it to a whole new level.
Jane’s Addiction have written the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience. Great bands break rules, but legends write their own.
