Coming off two roof-raising sold-out shows last week at Irving Plaza in New York City (10/17, 10/18) as part of a special small venue run that also brought the band to Chicago and Los Angeles, JANE’S ADDICTION–frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass—performed their song Underground , Monday, October 24, on CBS-TV’s “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST—the pioneering alt-rock band’s fourth studio album that was released October 18–features the transfixing “Irresistible Force,” a Top Ten hit on the alternative rock chart. The album, the band’s first in eight years, was produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek on the creative team. Sitek, best known for his production work for TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album.
Meanwhile, in 2012, JANE’S ADDICTION will embark on a world tour.
The new album The Greatest Escape Artist is available on iTunes.
