This photo, originally posted by Etty Lau Farrell on Instagram, and later shared by Eric Avery on IG and Facebook, shows Eric, Perry and Steve Perkins in the studio together. This would be the first time Perry and Eric have worked on new music together since their ill-fated attempt after the 2009 NIN/JA tour.
This comes literally days after Perry revealed that he’s been in the studio with Peter DiStefano, working on new music for Porno For Pyros.
Hulu will be live streaming Porno For Pyros’ set from the 2022 Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, IL on Sunday, July 31 starting at 7:45 EDT. A number of other performances from the festival will be streamed over the course of the weekend. You can check out the entire schedule at: https://www.hulu.com/lollapalooza
It has been announced that Porno For Pyros will replace Jane’s Addiction at the 2022 Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, IL on July 31. It is expected that original P4P bassist Martyn LeNoble will be performing with the band at the show as he was confirmed for the July 30 after show event.
Porno For Pyros will be playing a Kind Heaven After Dark show at The Belasco in Downtown Los Angeles on July 7, 2022. From the advertisement posted by Perry’s wife Etty Lau Farrell via Facebook, it sounds like Perry will be pulling double-duty that night, as Perry Farrell’s Kind Heaven Orchestra are slated as a featuring act.
Update: Martyn LeNoble will be returning to bass duties for this show. This will be his first performance with the band since a private show in 2009, and his first public show with the band since 1997.
Jane’s Addiction will be playing the final nights of both the 2022 Lollapalooza festivals in Argentina and Brazil. This will be the band’s first show in Brazil in 10 years, and Argentina in 9 years. Both shows will take place in March, with the Argentina show on the 20th, and the Brazil show on the 27th.
While Lollapalooza 2020 is cancelled this year, the organizers have created Lolla2020, a free 4-day streaming event on their YouTube channel, kicking off on Thursday, July 30 at 6pm ET / 5pm CT. It features past Lollapalooza sets and new performances from over 135 artists, including Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros as well as Perry & Etty Farrell. Perry Farrell will also be one of the people contributing conversations between performances.

Perry Farrell — the frontman for Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros and Satellite Party — has announced Perry Farrell: The Glitz; The Glamour, a nine-vinyl box set that will take a retrospective look at Farrell’s prolific 35-year-long career.
The box set’s 68 tracks cover rarities and early recordings of Farrell’s, including “Ho Ka Hey,” a song from his first band Psi Com that was originally released in 1985 as part of a five-track EP. Taking inspiration from Joy Division and Siouxsie and the Banshees, Farrell recorded the post-punk tune just prior to the formation of Jane’s Addiction; it showcases Farrell’s early involvement in the alternative rock scene.
In addition to the vinyl recordings, the box set will include a Blu-ray featuring 12 uncompressed Dolby Atmos mixes from Kind Heaven and three brand-new previously unreleased Atmos mixes, a photographic memoirs hardcover book, a bandana and two exclusive Zoltar prints. The box set will also be available as a limited streamable download, with preorders beginning August 7th.
Other highlights include an unearthed recording of the Doors’ Jim Morrison, written and recorded with Starcrawler, and 11 commissioned remixes from and collaborations with Maceo Plex, Groove Armada, UNKLE, Solomun, Booka Shade, Richard Norris, Francois K and the Avalanches.
