Jane’s Addiction Planning To Release New Music In 2021

It looks like Jane’s Addiction are planning to release new music in 2021. Perry Farrell told Classic Rock the following about that:

“I wouldn’t think albums, I’d think songs. We’ve got so much Jane’s material in the can. We’ll be releasing a couple of tracks, maybe writing some new ones. Not this year, ’cause we’re getting late in the year. But I can tell you in the next month or so I’m gonna be finishing up a couple of Jane’s Addiction tracks.”

Ben Koller Offers Updates On New Material From Converge And Mutoid Man

During a recent appearance on the “BREWtally Speaking Podcast“, Ben Koller offered updates on new material from Converge and Mutoid Man. He said the following:

“Yea Converge, we have a ton of stuff ready to go. We just need to get in the studio and sort of hash it out. I think right now I’m at the point where I’m just ready to move on and start doing stuff, because I’m going crazy here not being able to tour and stuff. So I’m ready to fly back to Massachusetts—safely obviously—and get some stuff done. So Converge has stuff, Mutoid Man basically has a whole record ready to go. We just had to get the studio, find the time, but you know it’s a weird time and a lot of weird life stuff going on and yes, it’s, it’s just very strange. I mean I’m definitely stoked to record stuff but yeah it’s just a really weird time right now, but yeah expect new material it’s coming. Maybe slowly, but it’s coming.”

Clown Confirms That Slipknot Have Been Working On New Music

During a recent bottle signing for Slipknot’s “No. 9 Iowa Whiskey,” M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan confirmed that the band have been working on new music. The percussionist said the following:

“Right now is kind of an interesting time. We’re taking this time to write some new music. So for the last week, we’ve been just having a good time, eating a lot of food and writing God music. So we’re having a good time. Since everybody’s taken a lot of time off, we thought we’d utilize it by getting together and do what we probably do best, which is write music. So it’s been good, because there’s no pressure. It’s not like we have to. We’re doing it ’cause we want to. And it’s just been a blessing, because boredom can set in. And I know all of us in the world.”

Rob Arnold Says Chimaira Were Planning To Play Live This Year And That They Had Discussed New Music

During a recent interview with Pierre Gutiérrez, Chimaira’s Rob Arnold revealed that the band were planning to play another “Chimaira Christmas” concert this year. The guitarist went on to say that they were also discussing the possibility of new music as well.

Arnold said of the following:

“We had the next ‘Chimaira Christmas‘ show, which was gonna be Christmas of 2020… [It[ had been booked, but it hadn’t been announced yet. We weren’t gonna announce it until probably mid-summer… We had already even started talking about setlists and stuff like that. And then along with that came the talks of ‘hey, why don’t we start writing some music and just start putting some riffs together and sending them back and forth?’ and that didn’t really get out of any infancy stage. There aren’t any songs or anything yet that are in the archives or anything like that. That never really lifted off. Because right at that same moment is when COVID hit. And obviously everybody had to make huge adjustments right then. And just everything was put on hold. A few weeks later the show was cancelled…”

He also added:

“All I can say is maybe we’ll try for next year. Hopefully this time next year, everything that should have been happening right now will be happening, but I can’t say—no one can say.”
