First it was Sept. 27, then it was Oct. 4.

Now the latest release date for the new Jane’s Addiction album, ‘The Great Escape Artist,’ is Oct. 18.

Anxious fans looking for a likely reason behind this particular postponement can direct their attention to the band’s recently announced show series in partnership with Citi. Jane’s Addiction will perform two-night stands at small venues in Chicago (Sept. 24 and 25), Los Angeles (Oct. 3 and 4) and New York (Oct. 17 and 18).

Citi credit card members can buy tickets now for the band’s Chicago shows at the Metro; general ticket sales for those concerts will begin on Sept. 10. Venue and ticket information for the Los Angeles and New York dates is forthcoming.

‘The Great Escape Artist,’ featuring the single ‘Irresistible Force,’ is the first new Jane’s album since ‘Strays’ was released in 2003.
