Jane's Addiction: New Single, Show Tonight in NYC


Jane's Addiction will debut their official brand new single "Irresistible Force" Tuesday, August 2 on the world-famous KROQ morning radio show The Kevin & Bean Show, which will be available through all digital outlets August 3. The song--a swirling, moody and epic composition—is taken from the band's much-anticipated new album The Great Escape Artist (Capitol Records). Marking the first new studio album by in eight years by Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins, it is due out Tuesday, September 27. The album also features "End To The Lies", a pre-single teaser track which the band made available to their fans as a free download this past April.

For The Great Escape Artist, Jane's Addiction joined forces 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 Chaney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011.

Tonight, Jane's Addiction will play an exclusive, private show at Terminal 5 in New York City, in association with YouTube and LG. N ot only will the concert be streamed live on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/comealive), but it will also be the first 3D user-generated concert event. Attendees—including more than 200 lucky ticket holders selected by LG and Jane's Addiction--will be the first to be able to film the show on brand new LG Thrill 4G Devices, and then these films are combined into one special 3D 60-minute documentary film which will be premiered on the LG Thrill 3D YouTube channel on August 4.
