Jane’s Addiction Premiere New Track ‘Another Soulmate’
As Jane’s Addiction get ready to hit the road for the Uproar Festival, it looks like they’ll have a new song to play. The iconic rock band have just unveiled the track ‘Another Soulmate.’
“Being that we have a tour, I’m really happy that we have a good song that will serve as our calling card when we hit various cities,” frontman Perry Farrell tells Rolling Stone. “Jane’s is kind of known for long songs; being this is a one-song single, I thought it’d be interesting to try and write a Beatles-esque short song that would be fast and furious and it would just be fun, dig it and move on, short attention span.”
The Uproar Festival kicks off tomorrow (Aug. 9) in Scranton, Pa., and in addition to Jane’s Addiction also features Alice in Chains, Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive, Walking Papers, Danko Jones, Middle Class Rut, New Politics and Chuck Shaffer Picture Show.
Farrell talked to Rolling Stone about a couple of the bands on the bill. “I’ve met the Coheed and Cambria kids; I like them a lot. I like how creative they are with their comic book stuff; it’s amazing that they’re so into making comics and superheroes and things like that. It reminds me a little bit of the Tool guys when I first met them and they were really into doing interesting and bizarre things with video,” he says. “The Alice [in Chains] guys I’ve known forever; I knew them in their heyday and I’ve continued to stay in touch with Jerry Cantrell.”
Jane’s Addiction released the CD/DVD ‘Live in NYC‘ in June.
