TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek Joins Jane's Addiction


Dave Sitek
Jane's Addiction have announced that Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio will fill the revolving-door bass slot for the band's upcoming album. He replaces Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), who left in September, and original bassist Eric Avery. A album of new material is tentatively scheduled for a Summer 2011 release on Capitol Records.

"Dave, Steve and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music,” said singer Perry Farrell in a statement. “It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential.”

"This process has been both inspiring and incredibly freeing,” added Dave Navarro. “The events over the last year have proven themselves to be a necessary part of the journey as they have led us to our current creative team and direction."
