“The gang and the government are no different. That makes me 1%. Rockville, although we are blue that Jane’s cannot be with you at this time due to Dave’s long bout with COVID, I am still coming to Daytona, bringing to you for the first time in 26 years Porno For Pyros Featuring myself, Perry Farrrell, Stephen Perkins, Peter DiStefeno and Mike Watt.

Perry Farrell On The Possibility Of New Jane’s Addiction Music: “I Would Love To See Us Record A Couple Of Tracks This Year”

During an interview with Consequence, Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell was asked about the possibility of new music from the band. He responded with the following:

“With Jane’s Addiction, timelines … well, you never know. But what I would love to see … I would love to see us record a couple of tracks this year. Even if it’s two or three tracks … two tracks, I feel two is nice. I think people can take two, like two aspirin [laughs].”

He continued when asked about touring plans:

“We do have ambitions to hit the road this year, so it won’t be long before you’ll know if those ambitions have come to fruition.”

Perry Farrell On The Possibility Of A New Jane’s Addiction Album: “Maybe One More Album Before I Die Would Be Awesome”

During a recent appearance on AXS TV’s “At Home And Social With…”, Perry Farrell was asked about the possibility of a new Jane’s Addiction album. The frontman responded by saying it “would be awesome” to make “one more album” before he dies.

Farrell said the following:

“Well, I can’t speak for everybody, but I’ll speak for myself… Personally, I’ve been making music — I mean, I make music through the week. I have plans to release a track a month.

I love the guys in JANE’S ADDICTION and I wanna record with them. But I don’t know what their plans are. But I’ll talk to ’em about it.

These days, it’s a little bit different. We — meaning us older guys that are established now — there’s not really a need to come out with albums. Although maybe one more album before I die would be awesome, with JANE’S. And I think we can do it too. I would like to be prolific for the next five years, I think. Then I’ll be able to take a vacation.

I call ’em up from time to time, [and I tell them], ‘I’ve got this track, man.’ But they’re not ready. So I give it off to [my solo project] KIND HEAVEN ORCHESTRA.”

On another note, Farrell also confirmed that Porno For Pyros will be releasing a new song called “Aqua” in the near future. He said the following about that:

“It’s about how water affects mankind’s mental health.”
