Los Angeles' alt-rock progenitors Jane's Addiction are set to receive a serious form of hometown credibility: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The band's ceremony will take place on October 30th, according to Variety, and the group has yet to comment on the honor.
The band, which has broken up and reunited several times since forming in 1985, most recently released their fourth studio album, The Great Escape Artist, in 2011 and their Live in NYC EP this year. They also put out a new, electronic-tinged song, "Another Soulmate," in August to coincide with a summer tour.
"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," frontman Perry Farrell told Rolling Stone about the track. At the time, Farrell also explained his concept for the song's video. "I said [to the directors], 'Think about the dating services, how wacky they are. Let's do a parody of [an] online dating service: quick, simple, inexpensive, hilarious and compelling. . . I think the song needs visual stimulation to go along with it." (via)
