Aerosmith to start work on new album next month

Tyler, Perry and co head into the studio with producer Jack Douglas

Aerosmith are finally getting on with the long-awaited follow-up to 2004’s ‘Honkin’ On Bobo’.

In a post made on on June 7, the band’s guitarist Joe Perry confirmed: “Whole band has plans to go into the studio with [producer] Jack Douglas second week of July to work on new Aerosmith CD.”

He also updated fans with the message: “Laying down some new tracks this week. Been listening to fans’ comments over last couple of years putting that in creative blender.”

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.

The band’s drummer Joey Kramer previously revealed that the new album “Is going to be an old-school Aerosmith record.”
