Jane's Addiction - 'The Great Escape Artist' (10/18)

It's taken Jane's Addiction eight years and four bass players – including TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek – to release the follow-up to 2003's Strays. But Perry Farrell is confident about the finished product. "It's a strange mixture of that post-punk goth darkness Jane's had with Muse and Radiohead," he says. The disc has a loose concept about a Harry Houdini-style escape artist. "It could be about escaping to the outdoors," says Farrell, "or we might even be able to escape the expectations of old Jane's fans with another great record."
