Rolling Stone: Inside Perry Farrell’s Wild Vegas EDM Musical: Sex, Drugs and War

Rolling Stone has an article about Perry’s new EDM project.  Of particular note for Jane’s Addiction fans is the final paragraph:

One aspect is clear, though: Thanks to Kind Heaven, no one should expect to hear from Jane’s Addiction for some time. “This is a pretty massive undertaking,” Farrell says, “so Jane’s Addiction is going to take a hiatus. It’ll be a couple of years before you see Jane’s again.”

Thanks go out to ‘bman’ in the forums for the heads on on this article.

New Footage Of Jane’s In The Studio & Live In South America

The following clip was posted at janesaddiction.com earlier today. The clip directed by Todd Newman, features live footage from the band’s recent trip to South America. In between the live footage are shots of the band working in the studio on the tentatively titled disc The Great Escape Artist. One thing that really caught my attention as I watched the clip was the history of the mixing desk the band appears to be using.
