Rock fans of the bands Jane’s Addiction and the Foo Fighters are probably well aware of the new supergroup formed by Jane’s Addiction’s guitarist Dave Navarro, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins  and bassist Chris Chaney called NHC. For those who are not aware, the group was formed recently in the fall and released their first two singles entitled “Feed The Cruel,” and “Better Move On.” The song releases surprised the world as fans of these musicians went crazy over the material. These first two songs were released just as stand alone singles available to stream on youTube and all the standard streaming services like Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora and all the rest. Just this week the band NHC released their third and fourth singles entitled “Devil That You Know,” and “Lazy Eyes.”

The band NHC have already completed an album together and are slowly releasing songs from the record. The entire project began during the pandemic when Dave Navarro, Chris Chaney and Taylor Hawkins got together and started jamming. It felt good so they started writing songs together and recording at Taylor Hawkins’ house. Before they knew it, they had an entire album of material. However, since it takes a while to get an album released, the band decided to start releasing songs from the record to spur interest in the band since this was a new group. Things have changed in the music business over the years as most younger fans simply just download singles instead of albums anyways so it really does make sense do it that way.

To help shed light on the new band Dave Navarro, Chris Chaney and Taylor Hawkins agreed to appear as NHC at Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam’s Ohana Festival on Saturday October 2. The new supergroup hit the stage first in the middle of the afternoon for a thirty minute set in what they played a few songs from the yet to be released album as a well a couple of cover songs including a stirring version of Queen’s “Keep Yourself Alive.” In an interview with Forbes magazine Dave Navarro said it felt good to see the crowd react well to the group and stick with them for the entire set.

In listening to the five songs that the band has released so far, it’s easy to hear how these three legendary musicians have been influenced so heavily by the gods of classic rock. Their new song “Lazy Eyes,” is a definite intentional  tribute to the band Rush where there are parts of the song that utilizes legendary Rush riffs in the recording. It’s a lot of fun to listen too. One can also hear heavy influences by the band Queen and Led Zeppelin. However, most interesting is the influence of the bands that the three musicians have played in for a big portion of their lives like The Foo Fighters, Janes Addiction, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and even Alanis Morissette who Taylor Hawkins and Chris Chaney played with as part of her band in the 90s. Chris Chaney has also played with Taylor Hawkins in Hawkins band Coattail Riders. Dave Navarro is a legendary journeyman and is regarded as one of the most influential guitarists of the the 1990s ad 21st century rock scene.

It will be interesting to hear the new album in its completion as everything released so far has showed such a wide range of styles. No release date has been set yet, but we have a feeling that the group will be on the bill with someone in the summer to promote the new record. Don’t be surprised if it’s with the Foo Fighters which would be pretty convenient for at least one member of the band.
