According to Joe Perry, AEROSMITH will hit the road in the U.S. later this year with support from Slash and the former GUNS N’ ROSES axeman’s bandmates MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS — Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass) and Frank Sidoris (guitar). Tickets will go on sale in the next few weeks.
AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler is reportedly working on a solo album, tentatively due later this year.
The AEROSMITH singer issued his first-ever solo song, called “(It) Feels So Good”, in May 2011 while serving as a judge on “American Idol”.
AEROSMITH‘s latest album, “Music From Another Dimension!”, came out in November 2012 and debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling 63,000 copies in its first week of release. The CD was 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”.
Slash and MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS recently entered the studio to record the third album under the solo Slash banner. The follow-up to 2012’s “Apocalyptic Love” is being helmed by producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Kennedy‘s other band, ALTER BRIDGE, as well as FALLING IN REVERSE, STORY OF THE YEAR and INCUBUS, to name a few.
