Lineup Changes For Jane’s Addiction & Paramore

01:01 PM Tuesday 1/4/11 |   |

Jane’s Addiction announces it is working with a new bassist, and Paramore reveals the names of its temporary guitarist and drummer.

In a statement released today, Jane’s Addiction announced it has added Dave Sitek to its creative team. Sitek, who has done production work with TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, will write and play bass on the new Jane’s Addiction album.

The announcement didn’t indicate whether or not Sitek would join the band on the road for future tours.

Sitek will be filling the shoes of bassist Duff McKagan, who quit Jane’s Addiction in September, five months after officially joining the band. McKagan, who was a former member of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver, was added to Jane’s Addiction’s lineup to replace original member Eric Avery.

Jane’s Addiction is working on a follow-up to its third studio album, 2003’s Strays. The new album is tentatively scheduled for a summer 2011 release on Capitol Records.

“Dave, [bassist Stephen Perkins] and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music,” singer Perry Farrell said in a statement. “It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential.”

Paramore’s lineup is also going through some changes after last month’s announcement that guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro are no longer a part of the band.

In a tweet late last week singer Hayley Williams confirmed that Justin York and Josh Freese would be joining the band on the road for its South American tour.

York, who formerly played with Christian rock band Tait, will take over on guitar. He is the brother of Paramore guitarist Taylor York.

Freese will handle the drums on tour. Rolling Stone points out the session drummer has played with Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails and Devo.

In an additional tweet, Williams added that, “Neither Josh Freese nor Justin York are joining as members, just helping us for the South American tour.”

The tour kicks off Feb. 16 at Ginasio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil. The band will also make stops in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela.

    I am not sure that "working" should be considered "slumming".  Is he not a session drummer?  I saw him with DEVO and he was having a fantastic time , laughing quite a bit. Lots to be said for that..

    I dont know how pointing out that he never says no makes me an idiot.

    I have seen him at least four times in different bands that I can think of.

    Which goes to show he will play with anyone and everyone.

    Calm down.

    I've seen Devo three times live, so I have had the fortune to see Josh Freese play live. Paramore is a good live group (seen them twice), so I am sure Freese will be a positive substitute for that leg of the tour.

    @ahhhhhh You're an idiot.

    @Soundguru You're an imbecile.
