The Great Escape Artist Summer
The L.A. alt-godfathers are deep into some forward-looking sounds with the help of their new bassist, TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. "He's like a scientist," says singer Perry Farrell. "It just keeps getting gnarlier and gnarlier." Produced by Rich Costey (Muse), the album will draw from about 20 potential songs. Adds guitarist Dave Navarro, "We're in a really good space creatively and emotionally."
