Perry Farrell's voice was hurting last week when Jane's Addiction rolled into New York for two shows at the intimate Irving Plaza. But the singer sounded just fine when the band turned up on the 'Late Show With David Letterman' on Monday (Oct. 24) to perform 'Underground,' the opening cut from their new album, 'The Great Escape Artist.'
On-again, off-again alt-rockers Jane's Addiction are locked in to play CBS' 'Late Show With David Letterman' tonight (Oct. 24). Frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass, will likely perform a song off their recently released 'The Great Escape Artist,' the group's first studio album since 2003.
Jane's Addiction have been called many things since forming in Los Angeles way back in 1985, but prolific is not one of them. Over the course of a quarter-century, Jane's have managed to release a grand total of just four studio albums -- and that's including their latest, 'The Great Escape Artist,' which drops today (Oct. 18). That said, don't mistake that lack of quantity for an absence of quality.
You waited years for Jane’s Addiction's new album, then waited a bit longer when Perry Farrell and the boys delayed the release date for ‘The Great Escape Artist,’ their first disc since 2003’s ‘Strays.’ Now, you're getting some good news, as the band is now streaming the disc for free online at iTunes ahead of its Oct. 18 drop date.
