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, have finished recording more than half of their debut album, according to Billboard.com.
"We've got close to 10 or 11 songs written and we've recorded about seven," guitarist Dave Navarro told Billboard.com last week in Las Vegas. "We're finishing up the album in January, and it's awesome."
Asked to describe THE PANIC CHANNEL's sound, Navarro offered, "It's definitely rock. The best description I can give you is, if RUSH was an alternative band with a little sense of goth. It's like a goth RUSH."
The as-yet-untitled set is being recorded by producer/engineer Bryan Virtue, who worked on JANE'S ADDICTION's 2003 Capitol reunion album, "Strays".
While Navarro is signed to Capitol as a solo artist, THE PANIC CHANNEL have yet to ink a label deal. "We'd like to stay at Capitol," he said. "So far, everything has been DIY. We financed the record and the shows. At this point, we're just doing it as well as we can on our own. If Capitol wants to get involved, we'd love it."
