Jane's Addiction 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."

    how is this news? Jane's have been "off" more than they've ever been "on"
    Are they going to be in the Guinness book of world records for most hiatuses. Let's hope Eric Avery comes back next time.
    Time for Dave to rejoin RHCP
    I think they're better off with Klinghoffer honestly. In an ideal world though they'd still have Frusciante.
    That'd be great. One Hot Minute never got the credit it deserved. Nothing that followed Bloodsugarsexmagik was going to live up to expectation, but I enjoyed damn near every song on the album, which is a hell of a lot more than I can say for I'm With You
    That's kinda bellendy.
