Jane's Addiction Going In A Different Direction

(Gibson) Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins recently talked to Billboard.com about the progress being made on the band's new album. The two both stressed that the follow-up to 2003's Strays will be very different from anything the alt-rockers have done before.

"It's a completely different direction for Jane's Addiction," Navarro said. "However, it still sounds very much like Jane's Addiction We probably have more material for this record than we've ever had for any record, which is a pretty great place to be."

Perkins talked about how the band has been assisted by co-producer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Sitek, saying that the TV on the Radio member "opened up my eyes to a lot of new ideas as a drummer," especially in regards to technology. Although Navarro called Sitek a "stabilizing force" for Jane's Addiction, he also said that he wasn't the band's new, full-time bassist contrary to reports. Navarro, Perkins and Perry Farrell have been without a fourth member since the departure of Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), who replaced Eric Avery. more on this story
