Californian alternative hard rockers “Jane’s Addiction” have released their brand new live DVD, titled “Live Voodoo”.

The gig, filmed in New Orleans, which features a full live set from there ‘Halloween’ evening show last year, was released yesterday. The release can also be bought on a Blu-Ray disk.

On HMV.com (at the time of writing) the DVD can be bought at a face value of just £10.99, and the Blu-Ray equivalent for £12.99.

A spokesperson for the band detailed that “This spectacular show captures the band on top form with Perry Farrell at his most mesmerizing and the rest of the band clearly enjoying the occasion”.

What makes this DVD such a remarkable item for “Jane’s Addiction” fans is the line up captured on the DVD is the original line up and founding members of the band back in 1985.

“Jane’s Addiction” DVD “Live Voodoo” therefore consists of a set performed by “Perry Farrell” (Vocals), “Stephen Perkins” (Drums), “Eric Avery” (Bass) and “Dave Navarro” (Guitar).

Bass player “Eric Avery” committed himself to the band again for the 2008 world tour, after previously declining offers to become a member of “Jane’s Addiction” numerous times in the past.

“Eric Avery” no longer remains with the band after they announced they would be writing new material for an as yet un-detailed album. He announced this via his Twitter account by posting the words: “thats it. with equal parts regret and relief, the janes addiction experiment is at an end”, on the 1st of March 2010.

A sneak preview of “Live Voodoo” released by the band shows an astonishing re-enactment of hit song “Stop”. The energetic performance contains some excellent camera work bringing the original line up to life.

“Jane’s Addiction” currently have three studio albums released: “Nothings Shocking”, “Ritual De Lo Habitual” and the latest album “Strays”.
