New album for Jane’s Addiction !!!

Jane’s Addiction, the band that singlehandedly relit rock’s fuse in the 90s, is back – just when they’re needed most. “STRAYS,” the first all-new Jane’s Addiction collection in more than a decade, is set for release in July 2003, coming as the band’s most extraordinary expression to date. Driven, as ever, by Perry Farrell’s flamboyant lyricism, guitarist Dave Navarro’s flash virtuosity, and the inspired engine-room of drummer Stephen Perkins and new bassist Chris Chaney, “STRAYS” is Jane’s Addiction at the peak of their potency.

“It’s been a process like making wine,” says Farrell says of the band’s return. “As a team, we are stronger than ever. The objectives we have to work with are much greater. And there’s a necessity – the world is more desperate, so in a bizarre way, it’s more exciting, and much more challenging.”

The band’s not-so-secret weapon for the “STRAYS” sessions was legendary producer Bob Ezrin. Renowned for his work with such artists as Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd (among many others), Ezrin – and his longtime engineer Brian “Gummo” Virtue – brought a wealth of experience and wisdom to the proceedings.

Jane’s Addiction will also sit atop the bill for Lollapalooza once again, having brought back the tour for the summer of 2003. Joining them on the main stage will be Audioslave, Queens of the Stone Age, Incubus, Jurassic 5, the Donnas and A Perfect Circle. Just like the original, the goal is to exhilarate and inspire a sense of community in an increasingly disparate rock audience.
