Perry Farrell Exciting About Upcoming Projects Including Porno for Pyros

( Jane's Addiction is in the midst of another string of dates promoting their latest album, 2011′s The Great Escape Artist: they are currently co-headlining the Uproar Festival with fellow '90s survivors Alice In Chains (read our review of the festival here). But frontman/ringmaster Perry Farrell shows no signs of taking a break when the tour ends.

In a recent conversation with about the 25th anniversary of Jane's Addiction's landmark album Nothing's Shocking, he discussed how that album broke down barriers between genres: metalheads, punks and goths met in the mosh pit at those early shows, not a common occurrence in the late '80s/early '90s.

And he mentioned, "I'm about to do it again! I have some projects coming up in 2014, I feel excited about them… I have some goodies in my bag that when people experience them, they're going to have that same feeling where they're just saying 'Wow. This is awesome, I'm gonna tell my friends.' There's gonna be a new scene created in 2014."

One of those projects is a reunion with his post-Jane's band, Porno For Pyros, which also featured Jane's drummer Stephen Perkins, along with guitarist Peter DiStefano. "I have some new songs coming out with Porno For Pyros, and we may end up doing some spot dates," he revealed. He said that Mike Watt played bass on the tracks (Watt took over for original bass player Martyn LeNoble during the recording of the band's second and final album, 1996′s Good God's Urge). "He's a busy man," he says of Watt, who also plays bass for the Stooges, "but he loves working."

Farrell has long been a fan of electronic music and has DJ-ed as DJ Peretz, long before the current EDM craze. And he has a new dance music album on the way as well: "I'm not positive exactly when [it will come out]. I have a dance record coming that's part of an immersive play, it's very complicated and exciting. It's with [wife] Etty and some incredible house producers."

Finally, he has been writing rock songs, which he hopes to record with his most well-known band. "I have written an EP for a rock band, hopefully it will be with Jane's Addiction, and that will happen when we get off the road. If it is with Jane's Addiction. If not, it will be with some amazing musicians. Or I may ask everybody to collaborate on a four or five song EP." more on this story is an official news provider for
