New Janes Addiction Record – Hypersonic

Janes Addiction is hoping to release its first studio album in 13 years, “Hypersonic on June 24th. This will be the group’s first new album since 1990’s “Ritual de lo Habitual.”

Lead singer Perry Farrell is working hard to make sure “Hypersonic” is released before the July 3 kickoff of Lollapalooza, which Jane’s Addiction will headline. “We’ve got a lot of work cut out for us,” he admits. “We’re going from zero to mach 8!” He says Jane’s will be featuring quite a bit of the new material in its Lollapalooza set and is “going to play a certain amount of shows around the country and in the clubs to get heated up” before the festival gets underway.

“Hypersonic” picks up right where Jane’s left off in the early ’90s, powered by guitarist Dave Navarro’s signature licks, Stephen Perkins’ octopus-armed drumming, and Farrell’s high-register yelps. Among the highlights are the intense rock assaults of “Just Because” and “Wrong Girl” and the groove-rooted “The Riches,” which Farrell says “is about all the things in life that are truly enriching — and none of the subjects are stacks of cash!”
