LIVE FROM SAN FRANCISCO THIS TUESDAY NIGHT, MAY 10
Coming off a fiery performance this past Friday night (May 6) at the 7th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit honoring Depeche Mode lead singer Dave Gahan and Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman, JANE’S ADDICTION will perform a live concert Tuesday, May 10 during the Google I/O Developer Conference at Moscone Center in San Francisco, which will be livestreamed in state-of-the-art HD. The performance by the groundbreaking band’s Perry Farrell (lead vocals), Dave Navarro (guitars) and Stephen Perkins (drums), with Chris Chaney on bass, is part of the Google I/O After Hours party and will also feature San Francisco DJs Mark Farina and Miguel Migs, with music visuals by Sexyvisuals. Google will be live streaming the private concert from I/O Live at www.google.com/io from 7:30 - 9:30 P.M. PDT.
Look for JANE’S ADDICTION to perform a set encompassing classics and material from their upcoming album THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, to be released Late Summer 2011 on Capitol Records (exact date TBA). It will mark their first new studio album in eight years. The band recently gave away a free download of the song ''End To The Lies''—teeming with “exotic rhythms and twisted guitars” (Edna Gundersen, USA Today, 4/19/2011) exclusively at their website: www.janesaddiction.com.
For THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, JANE'S ADDICTION are working with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album. The band, with Chris Chaney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011.
