Vydra of the Dallas, Texas radio station 102.1 The Edge recently conducted an interview with Perry Farrell of JANE’S ADDICTION. The chat is now available for streaming below.
JANE’S ADDICTION will turn up the heat later this summer for the third leg of their North American “Theatre Of The Escapists” tour. Joining them on their new summer dates will be various support acts on select shows including MUTEMATH, BAND OF SKULLS and DIE ANTWORD.
JANE’S ADDICTION‘s new album, “The Great Escape Artist”, sold around 24,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart.
“The Great Escape Artist” is JANE’S ADDICTION‘s first all-new studio effort since 2003’s “Strays”, which opened with more than 110,000 units to enter the chart at No. 4.
“The Great Escape Artist” is only JANE’S ADDICTION‘s fourth album of original material in 20 years.
The current JANE’S ADDICTION lineup features original members Stephen Perkins, Perry Farrell on vocals and Dave Navarro on guitar.
Although founding bassist Eric Avery initially returned to the band when it reactivated in 2009, he quit the following year.
Dave Sitek of TV ON THE RADIO played bass on and co-produced the new record, while Chris Chaney has returned as touring bassist.
