Steven Tyler can currently be seen each week on American Idol, but the singer is still busy working with Aerosmith. "We've been in the studio for the last month," Tyler says of Aerosmith.


The band will once again be working with producer Jack Douglas (Toys in the Attic, Draw the Line) and, as you would expect, they're bringing back the classic Aerosmith sound. "We’re gonna have a vintage sound, 'cause we’re going to tape and a lot of good things like that," said Tyler. "We’re keeping tracks lean, not a lot of overdubs, and like I said, we’re using Jack to his fullest. So you’re gonna hear some stuff where you might think Aerosmith’s back."


According to Tyler, so far the sessions feel like they did back in the day. "I’m having such a good time writing again," he said. "You got the songs right now where they're like shells, with no lyrics and no melody, and I get to fill in the blanks like I did with 'Back in the Saddle' when it was just a track."

In even more good news for Aerosmith fans, the band will be hitting the road this summer. "June 18th it starts," Tyler said. "So spread the word."

We have heard that before. They have also said before that setlists would be set to suit the older fans and give the MTV stuff a break. That lasted a few shows and right back to the commercial stuff sadly. i had looked forward to the setlist from the first night and then got soundtrack crap.

I won't go to a show if I have to hear "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" or "Crazy" or "Cryin'" or "Hole In My Soul" and "What It Takes" even stretches my patience. It's not that I don't like ballads, because I would love to hear "You See Me Crying" or especially "Home Tonight." But the newer ballads just seem schlocky and hokey and that's probably because Tyler/Perry or Tyler/Whitford didn't write them. Hell, Brad Whitford hasn't had a writing credit since "Voodoo Medicine Man." Pump was the last album I truly loved and Aerosmith was once my favorite band of all time, but they lost me in the 90's. The last tour i saw was Nine Lives which was good but was essentially a greatest hits show with some new tracks tossed in. My favorite Aerosmith show is still the 1st one I saw back on opening night of the Permanent Vacation tour. they did "S.O.S. (Too Bad)" and I nearly feinted. they haven't played it much since. And they seem to ignore many great album tracks. As always, I have hopes for the new album but I suspect it will be another piece of crap, although with Jack Douglas at the helm maybe they are serious this time about getting back to ratty, nasty rock & roll.

Mid to late 70's Aerosmith shows were kicking...early 80's..I think 82 I saw them they were already starting to lose that edge...the next show I saw, cant remember the year, but I remember it was the last time I saw Aerosmith. They got worse live as time went on...I really hope they get back to the "old Aerosmith"...but I've heard it before. So I'm gonna wait to see what the do (or dont do)

I have not been a fan in a good many yrs, was a huge fan in the mid '70s, saw them in '78 and thought they were really pretty bad then, very sloppy, loud and distorted,
at times, had trouble making out which tune they were playin'.............Peace........joe

By Steven Tyler saying that you know the next album is going to suck.

Unless they have some old demos,or unfinished songs laying around from the mid seventies

That is an album I'd be looking forward to!

I'm guessing you were alluding to the Van Halen record. I think they did the right thing by revamping music they last worked on together with Dave. In many ways this is a record that is a natural progression from Women & Children First and Fair Warning. Diver Down was a weird record and 1984 went keyboard crazy. plus playing the old style music probably put them all on even footing and got back in the groove of classic Van Halen when creating new songs and adding to the old ones. Different Kind Of truth isn't VH IV or Balance part 2 and it's all the better for it.

If Aerosmith has some gems laying around to revamp, I hope they go for it. I've really enjoyed the last 2 joe perry solo albums so if he has more tunes like that I'm in too.

Steven has a really great voice - shame he buries it under those layers of harmony vocals on the more recent stuff. They should go into the studio and record stuff live. I bet they still have great mojo in them.

Hopefully Brad has some more input this time around.

Time they did another Yardbirds cover also.

I would settle for a setlist not dominated by Cryin', Lyin', Buyin', Tryin' or anything dealing with love.

I saw Aerosmith in 99 & 01, and I have to say that 99 was the best show. They did play some of the newer songs, but mostly old stuff that night. They should do a tour where they do nothing but 70s stuff, I'd definitely go to that show.

The Honkin' On Bobo tour started that way. But after a few shows all the modern era ballads crept back in the setlist.

On a positive note, I heard today from a friend with some inside scoop. Told me that a few tunes have been done and he heard the rough mix and said the tunes had that old feel and raw sound. Now that could change by the final product but so far so good. Two rowdier rockers and one acoustic guitar tune. Said the tunes had a Rocks feel to them.

Maybe they are watching the VH camp and seeing some merit in going back in time. Hope so.
