Jane’s Addiction, the iconic alternative rock titans, released their first single in eight years on Monday. Entitled ‘Irresistible Force’ it’s a dark, swirling, moody and epic composition that channels the mystical, shamanic qualities of the band; an interlaced fusion of Stephen Perkins insistent drums, Dave Navarro’s melodic guitar lines and Perry Farrell’s uniquely brilliant vocals.
‘Irresistible Force’ follows on from the track ‘End To The Lies’ which was made available as a free download earlier this year. Both tracks feature on the forthcoming and highly-anticipated new studio album ‘The Great Escape Artist’ which will be released in the autumn, and features both Dave Sitek (of TV On The Radio) and Chris Chaney on bass.
Jane’s Addiction hit the UK to headline the Radio 1/NME stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals, followed by an exclusive show at Koko in London on August 30th. The show sold out within minutes of going on sale.
