will be out of action until at least 2015, according to Classic Rock
(via Rolling Stone). Frontman Perry Farrell
stated that "Jane's Addiction is going to take a hiatus. It'll be a couple of years before you see Jane's again."
The statement contradicts the singer's remarks from last year that Jane's Addiction were planning to record a follow up to 2011's the Great Escape Artist
: "We have material left that we didn't record. I'm very inspired to keep with the theme. Something's feeling right about it."
Farrell will instead be working on a new project, a musical called Kind Heaven
, that is set in war torn Thailand and based on a love story between a soldier and a civilian. Farrell describes the project as "a musical written with a house sensibility,"
adding: "If Giorgio Moroder had written a musical, it would sound like this."
