AEROSMITH began work on its first all-new album since 2001 last year, with the rest of the band working on music while singer Steven Tyler made his “American Idol” debut.
“Music From Another Dimension” is being helmed by producer Jack Douglas, who previously worked with AEROSMITH on classic early albums like “Toys In The Attic” and “Rocks” as well as on 2004’s “Honkin’ On Bobo”.
“This record is different from the recent past, say the last 20 years, where everybody is getting in the studio and throwing down their songs,” guitarist Joe Perry recently told Billboard.com. “This record is a lot more band-written stuff than there has been in the recent past.”
AEROSMITH‘s “The Global Warming” tour will kick it off on June 16 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and wrap up on August 8 in Tacoma, Washington.
“This tour, in addition to a couple songs we know we’re going to play from the new record, we want to bring out songs we just haven’t played for years,” Perry told Billboard.com. “We’ll be playing some of those — songs that were staples in the sets back in the old days that will be new songs to a lot of people if they don’t know the albums.”
