Over the course of their 25-plus year career, Jane’s Addiction merged alternative and rock like no one before, becoming the first alternative rock band and creating a new sound and attitude in the process. Writing the rulebook for alternative music and culture through their combination of genre-defying classic songs and trademark cinematic live experience, Jane’s Addiction has sold over seven million records in the U.S. alone, garnering Grammy nominations and spearheading the movement of modern American festival culture by launching and headlining Lollapalooza.
2011 marks another momentous year for Jane’s Addiction, with the band set to tour the world and release a new album, The Great Escape Artist (Capitol) produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek brought on as part of the creative team.
