The last time Jane’s Addiction graced late night television (in 2003), Conan O’Brien was cracking jokes on NBC, J-Fal was still a force on SNL, Jimmy Kimmel Live had just debuted, and David Letterman hadn’t quite transitioned into a creepy old man. But with the band’s fourth studio album, The Great Escape Artist, dropping in less than two weeks, Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins, and on-again, off-again bassist Chris Chaney took to Kimmel‘s outdoor stage to perform “Irresistible Force” last night. With the lights dimmed, and the crowd basking in a flood of lasers, Farrell seemed slightly subdued following such a late-night dry spell…until the song’s first chorus. Farrell’s energy was amplified by the pounding double-bass of Perkins and the straight-sexy guitar stylings of the legendary Navarro. If you missed it on tape delay, check out the video replay below.

As a web exclusive bonus, the band also ripped through “Stop!” from 1990’s Ritual de lo habitual:

The Great Escape Artist is available October 18th.
