Aerosmith producer promises that new album will be 'nasty and raw'
Aerosmith producer Jack Douglas has revealed that the band's new album will be "nasty" and "raw".

Douglas, who entered the studio with the band earlier this summer, has told fans that the record should be released in May 2012 and will feature "a good deal of the old Aerosmith 'tongue in cheek'".

In June, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry announced via Twitter that the band were preparing to start work on the long-awaited follow-up to 2004's 'Honkin' On Bobo'.

According to Blabbermouth, Douglas has now provided an update on the recording sessions, revealing:

The new album should be out around May 2012. I know that's a long wait, but after the South American tour and Japan in October, November and December, we will just get back to work on it in mid-January.

He then added:

For those who are asking, this album will be raw, nasty, tough rock with a good deal of the old Aerosmith 'tongue in cheek'

Previously, the band's drummer Joey Kramer had revealed that the new album would be "an old-school Aerosmith record".

The forthcoming 15th studio album from the rock legends has been stalled by various health, touring and member complications. In 2010, frontman Steven Tyler was rumoured to be leaving the band, but the group triumphantly headlined Download Festival that same year with Tyler up front. More recently, recording had been delayed following Tyler's appearance as a judge on American Idol.
