TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek Joins Jane’s Addiction

TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek has joined Jane’s Addiction as the bassist for the band’s forthcoming record.

“Dave [Navarro], Steve [Perkins] and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music,” said Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell in a statement. “It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential.”

“This process has been both inspiring and incredibly freeing,” commented guitarist Dave Navarro. “The events over the last year have proven themselves to be a necessary part of the journey as they have led us to our current creative team and direction.”

After only five months in the band, ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan parted ways with Jane’s Addiction last September because of “creative differences.”

Jane’s Addiction’s as-yet untitled record, which is tentatively due for a summer 2011 release via Capitol Records, will be produced by Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse).
