Jane’s Addiction announce album release date and new single

Alternative rock pioneers Jane’s Addiction will debut their official brand new single “Irresistible Force” Tuesday, August 2nd on the world-famous KROQ morning radio show “The Kevin & Bean Show,” which will be available through all digital outlets August 3rd. 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 in eight years by Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins, it is due out Tuesday, September 27th. 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.

Jane’s Addiction announced an exclusive show at Koko in London on August 30, to follow their headline appearance on the Radio 1/NME stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals. The show sold out within minutes of going on sale.
