“End To The Lies”, the new video from JANE’S ADDICTION, can be viewed below.
To direct the clip, the band enlisted the help of ShadowMachine Films (Adult Swim‘s “Robot Chicken”) to create a visually stunning piece of art.
“I’m really happy to work on this video for ‘End To The Lies’ with Alex [Bulkley of ShadowMachine Films]. He clearly gets what JANE’S ADDICTION is about and the roots of where we came from. We came up in a very artistic community,” said guitarist Dave Navarro. “This video encompasses that through merging L.A. streets and street artists with sexuality and the beauty of music. There is no better way to define what this band has always been about.”
JANE’S ADDICTION‘s new album, “The Great Escape Artist”, will be released in August 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 band, with Chris Cheney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011.
