Rockers Jane’S Addiction have recruited Tv On The Radio’s Dave Sitek to replace Duff Mckagan following his exit from the band last year.
McKagan quit as the group’s bassist in September after just five months and three low-key gigs and now Sitek will take over as the band’s third bass player in a year.

He will join Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, and drummer Stephen Perkins in the studio for their fourth album.

In a statement, Farrell says, “Dave, Steve and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music. It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential.”

The forthcoming disc, expected for release in the summer, will be the follow up to 2003’s Strays.
