Jane’s Addiction Guitarist Dave Navarro To Miss More Shows Amid His Battle With Long COVID

Jane’s Addiction have confirmed that guitarist Dave Navarro will be sitting out more shows as he continues to battle long COVID. During his absence, Josh Klinghoffer (ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers) will be filling in.

The band commented:

“We’d like to address the questions surrounding Dave and the upcoming Jane‘s shows. As a band we are in a great place, writing new music, and the bond is tighter than ever. We all hope Dave can be out playing with us; when he feels heathy and ready.

For the near future, our brother Josh Klinghoffer will jump in for the upcoming shows on the West Coast, South America and some additional international shows to be announced soon. We want to thank you for being there with us over these thirty some odd years. You know we’re going to keep throwing down for you.

Perry, Eric & Stephen“

Frontman Bobby Blitz commented:

“Man, it seems like for F-in ever since we chatted!!!! Ha! I tell you what, this is the longest ever between Overkill releases, Feb ’19 to April ’23.

For me, it became my ‘peterpandemic’ go-to. I wrote my part, tore it down, then again and again. I found myself still changing parts while Colin was mixing! It became the normal in a very abnormal time, sanity amongst the insanity.

Somewhere in ‘Scorched‘ that is all reflected, a common thread, it is the place I went to get what I needed, maybe what “we” needed. It’s different, that’s for sure an old-school approach/mix in a modern world….was it worth the wait? You tell me…….see ya on the road! Horns up!”

“‘Violence No Matter What‘ is about one thing and one thing only. It’s ok to debate and fight and to think differently. But there is a limit, and the line must be drawn at authority held with violence, a world view that cannot survive without enemies, a promised return to a fabricated former glory.”

Hale added:

“‘Violence No Matter What‘ was such an inspiring piece to be a part of! Thank you so much to the boys for giving me the opportunity to express my angst against the horrors of this world through such a brilliant song!”

Atreyu Premiere “Drowning” Music Video

Atreyu have premiered a new video for their new song “Drowning.” The band commented:

“To the five of us, this song is audio anti-depressants. Much like everyone does, the five of us have experienced waves of depression, anxiety, and fear in vastly different ways.

This song is for all of us.”
