Rich Costey named as Jane’s Addiction’s Next Producer

BlabberMouth has announced that Rich Costey will be producing the upcoming Jane’s Addiction album, tentatively due in early 2011 on Capitol Records.  Rich Costey produced Dave Navarro’s solo album Trust No One.

Costey has also previously worked with bands such as Rage Against The Machine, who Jane’s Addiction recently played two shows with in Europe, Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Mew and others.

JANE’S ADDICTION — singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Duff McKagan  — has tapped Rich Costey as producer for the band’s next album, tentatively due out in the winter of 2011 on Capitol.

Costey’s extensive experience in the studio includes album production for such bands as MUSE and FRANZ FERDINAND as well as having studio credits for engineering, programming and mixing for WEEZER, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, DOVES and JURASSIC 5, among others.

JANE’S ADDICTION — which wrote the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience — is now in Los Angeles working on the new CD, having returned from potent concerts overseas in at the Gelredome in The Netherlands June 9 (with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and GOGOL BORDELLO) and Rock In Rio in Madrid, Spain June 11 (with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and CYPRESS HILL).

JANE’S ADDICTION debuted a brand new song, “Another Soulmate”, during an intimate one-off Cinco de Mayo concert on May 5 at Bardot, Hollywood in Hollywood, California. The Corzo-sponsored event marked the official live debut of McKagan.
