JANE’S ADDICTION will broadcast a live performance at the launch event for the new LG Thrill 4G phone hosted by LG on July 25. The band will perform for the private event, with fans in attendance capturing footage of the performance using the dual-lenses Thrill 4G. For fans not attending the event, the performance will be streaming live through YouTube in 2D for all to watch starting at 9 p.m. EST. After the event, footage from the performance will then be edited into a 60-minute documentary, which will be the first 3D video to be uploaded to YouTube3D on August 4.
JANE’S ADDICTION has released a video of the band in their studio recording a new song titled “Irresistible Force”, which will be on their upcoming album, “The Great Escape Artist”. The video shows the band using the new LG Thrill to film each other recording the new song. Lead singer Perry Farrell spoke about the Thrill 4G and partnering with LG for the event, saying, “We are so into technology and playing with technology almost as an instrument, and seeing what we can do with technology. And the latest thing has been the cell phone and 3D.” Perry continued, “we want to be able to have our audience watch us in 3D during a live performance.”
“The Great Escape Artist” will be released on September 27 (one day earlier internationally) through Capitol Records. The CD was recorded in Los Angeles 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, YEAH YEAH YEAHS and THE FOALS, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album.
“The Great Escape Artist” marks the band’s fourth studio album since 1988 and its first since 2003’s “Strays”.
