Kerrang! magazine conducted an interview with guitarist Dave Navarro of alternative rock pioneers JANE'S ADDICTION prior to the cancelation of the band's appearance yesterday (Saturday, August 27) at the Reading festival. You can watch the chat below.
JANE'S ADDICTION's Reading performance was scrapped because frontman Perry Farrell was suffering from a sore throat.
"Although Farrell was treated earlier in the day by top London physicians and had his heart set on trying to perform under any circumstance, in the end he was completely unable to produce any sound vocally," read a statement issued by the festival organizers. "JANE'S ADDICTION would like to deeply apologize to the fans for any inconvenience."
JANE'S ADDICTION's new album "The Great Escape Artist", will be released on October 4. For the CD, JANE'S ADDICTION joined forces with producer Rich Costey (MUSE, FRANZ FERDINAND, INTERPOL), with TV ON THE RADIO's Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV ON THE RADIO, YEAH YEAH YEAHS and THE FOALS, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album.
