Perry Farrell’s post-Jane’s Addiction band, Porno for Pyros, followed the same path as his previous band, combining art rock, punk, heavy metal, and funk into one shrieking whole. The band’s debut album “Porno for Pyros” was released in 1993, and anticipation surrounding the project was enough to drive the album to the #3 position on the Billboard top 200 list. The video for the album’s first single, “Pets,” received heavy airplay on MTV. Following the album’s release, Porno for Pyros continued a heavy touring schedule, including an appearance at Woodstock ’94. Unlike the relatively straight-ahead rock shows that were the hallmark of live Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros live shows relied heavily on props, extras and special-effects (including, but not limited to, pyrotechnics). In May 2022, Porno for Pyros reunited on stage for the first time in 26 years at Welcome To Rockville Festival, replacing Jane’s Addiction after the band pulled out due to Dave Navarro’s ongoing battle with COVID. Since then, the Jane’s offshoot have performed a headline set in Los Angeles, an intimate Lollapalooza after show, and a main stage set at the Farrell-founded festival. In 2023, Porno for Pyros celebrates the 30 year anniversary of their eponymous debut.
