THE PANIC CHANNEL To Work With P.O.D. Producer

THE PANIC CHANNEL, the new band featuring three quarters of the most recent lineup of JANE'S ADDICTION (guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins, and bassist Chris Chaney) and former SKYCYCLE vocalist Steve Isaacs, are scheduled to enter the studio on Thursday (June 23) to re-record their song "Half Hearted" with producer Howard Benson (COLD, PAPA ROACH, BLINDSIDE, P.O.D., SEPULTURA). "I guess we just kind of feel that we could add to it a bit," Navarro writes on his web site. "That's kind of the blessing of living with your material for a while, you gain perspective. We love the version we have done now, but it never hurts to see if one can better himself. It's not like the old one is going anywhere."

THE PANIC CHANNEL recently spent time in the studio doing "some work" with Josh Abraham (KORN, COURTNEY LOVE, LIMP BIZKIT, VELVET REVOLVER), according to an online posting by Navarro. Other tracks slated to appear on the as-yet-untitled album include "Tea House of the Spirits", "Bloody Mary", "Loophole", "Blue Bruises" and "Said You'd Be".

With regards to the band's musical direction, Navarro recently told, "I would say there's elements of both [JANE'S ADDICTION and Navarro's 2001 solo LP, 'Trust No One'] to the music, but some of the stuff's a little more song-oriented than anything we've done before, and some of it's real experimental. So, as with everything that we've done, it's very diverse."
