PORNO FOR PYROS Is Working On New Music

PORNO FOR PYROS, the post-JANE'S ADDICTION band fronted by Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell, is working on new music.

Guitarist Peter DiStefano took to his social media on July 20 to share a photo of him with drummer Stephen Perkins, and he included the following message: "Working on new PORNO FOR PYROS songs with @stephenperkinsdrummer in his front yard to send to @perryfarrellofficial".

A year ago, PORNO FOR PYROS reunited for a performance as part of Lollapalooza's Lolla2020 livestream. Farrell, Perkins, DiStefano and bassist Mike Watt (who joined the band during recording of 1996's "Good God's Urge") were filmed outside performing acoustic backyard versions of the 1993 hit "Pets" as well as "Kimberly Austin", a track from PORNO FOR PYROS' second LP, the aforementioned "Good God's Urge".

Rumors of a PORNO FOR PYROS reunion had been brewing for years. It was previously planned for Farrell's Las Vegas show "Kind Heaven" in 2019 before being scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Formed in 1992, PORNO FOR PYROS released its first self-titled debut album in 1993, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. Original bassist Martyn LeNoble left the group in 1996, and Watt replaced him from 1996 through 1997. "Good God's Urge" followed in 1996 before PORNO FOR PYROS broke up in 1998.

Prior to the Lolla2020 livestream, PORNO FOR PYROS' last performance was at Farrell's 50th-birthday party in 2009.
