AEROSMITH began work on its first all-new album since 2001 last year, with the rest of the band working on music while Tyler made his “American Idol” debut.
The band has been working with producer Jack Douglas, who collaborated with them on classic early albums like “Toys In The Attic” and “Rocks”.
Tyler said at a recent press conference that sales of AEROSMITH‘s back catalog were up 260 percent since he began appearing on “Idol”.
The 11th season of the series began with its two-night premiere on January 18.
