Few bands have staying power. Few bands stand the test of time. Few band uphold their originality over time.
Jane’s Addiction is an anomaly.
With the strength and insight of their fearless leader, Perry Ferrell, Jane’s has proven that the formula is truly simple. Just make good music.

As a result, we’ve done great work together.” credit=”Perry Ferrell on the state of the band.”]Jane’s has been creating heavy riffs and sing-along choruses with since their first release in ’86. Songs recording in their early years like ”Stop,” ”Been Caught Stealing” and “Jane Says” are still rock staples today. After 20+ years of innovative music under their belt, it’s safe to say that the band has solidified their place in rock royalty.
For The Great Escape Artist, due in stores September 27th, Jane’s Addiction joined forces with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) and TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek. A few weeks ago we World Premiered “End To The Lies, a track from the forthcoming album.
Today, we’re now proud to bring you the album’s first “official” single, “Irresistible Force.”
Perry on the current state of Jane’s Addiction – “We’ve gotten to know each other better than ever. As a result, we’ve done great work together. You have Keith Richards And Mick Jagger, they hate each other. The word is Ego. They feel there’s not enough space in the world for two of them. But when you mature, you realize that if one is succeeding that they’re all succeeding. Things are cool in the Jane’s camp.”
