New Aerosmith album almost done says Joe Perry

Fri, 11 May 2012
In a new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has revealed the band are almost done with their new album.

When asked what the status of their 15th studio album Perry explains, "It's really close. We've started to mix. We've mixed a couple of the songs already, but I guess this week we're really kind of rolling into mix mode. We have a couple of tracks left to finish up, just to put some overdubs on, but we're kind of going from the final, final recording tracks to mixing this week."

Speaking about the sound of the new material in comparison to the bands last release, "Just Push Play", the guitarist says "Let's say they're polar opposites. The whole attitude of making this record and the way that we went about it is so opposite. I mean, the band stayed in the room and everybody had riffs, songs. 

I can remember writing some of the riffs 20 years ago; they've been kind of bubbling under. Steven and I would look at each other and go, "We gotta use that one," and they'd always end up somewhere. A lot of these riffs that we love, that are really part of our inner Aerosmith lexicon, are now songs, finally.  So the whole process was different. The record's gonna sound modern and hi-fi."

No confirmed release date for the yet to be named album have been released, however Perry does reveal, "We're releasing a new single in three or four weeks, and that is going to open the door."
Aerosmith kick off their summer "Global Warming" Tour with Cheap Trick on June 16th in North America.
