Jane’s Addiction Unveil Explicit Video for ‘End to the Lies,’ Prepare for RockWalk Induction
Jane's Addiction will be honored with an induction into the Guitar Center RockWalk on Wednesday (June 1). In addition, the band has just premiered the video for their new single, 'End to the Lies.'
Singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins will be on hand for the RockWalk ceremony, during which their handprints will be immortalized in cement. The festivities, which will feature the Jane's Addiction bandmembers being inducted by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, will take place Wednesday at noon PT in front of Guitar Center on West Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, Calif.
Meanwhile, Jane's Addiction have premiered the video for 'End to the Lies,' the first single off their upcoming album, 'The Great Escape Artist.' The explicit clip for 'End to the Lies' was directed by Emmy-winning production house ShadowMachine Films. It contains graphically manipulated images of the bandmembers, as well as a series of illustrated projections onto a woman's nude body.
"I'm really happy to work on this video for 'End to the Lies' with [ShadowMachine founder Alex Bulkley]," says Navarro in a press release. "He clearly gets what Jane's Addiction is about and the roots of where we came from. We came up in a very artistic community -- this video encompasses that through merging L.A. streets and street artists with sexuality and the beauty of music. There is no better way to define what this band has always been about.”
