Aerosmith May Never Release Another Album

By ANDY GREENE | May 23, 2014 AT 10:40AM


Aerosmith kicked off a tour in Bulgaria last week that will take them throughout Europe and North America over the next four months, but don't expect to hear another new album anytime soon. "Our contract to Sony is fulfilled and we're free agents right now," guitarist Joe Perry tells Rolling Stone. "We're trying to figure out what that means. I don't even know if making new albums makes sense anymore. Maybe we'll just release an EP every six months. I don't know what the future looks like."

Part of the group's reluctance to commit to a new album comes from the tepid response to their 2012 LP Music From Another Dimension!, which was their first collection of original songs in over a decade. It debuted at #5 on the charts before disappearing without a trace. None of the four singles even scraped the Billboard Hot 100. "I'm obviously disappointed it didn't work out the way it was supposed to," says Perry. "But on the other hand, once a record is out, it's out forever. Maybe in two years someone might hear a song off it and go, 'What was that song? It should have been on the radio.' And it might hit a wave again."

Perry argues that factors beyond the band's control sunk the album. "It was just one of those situations," he says. "[Former Columbia Records chairman] Steve Barnett was the head of the company at the time. He was our biggest champion and he left the label three weeks before the album came out. At the same time, we tied our single ['Legendary Child'] to the G.I. Joe movie. Part of the plan was also to play the song on American Idol. We were driving down there when we found out they were delaying the movie for six months because they want to re-film it in 3D."

Despite the problems, Perry remains extremely proud of Music From Another Dimension!. "It felt like a record in the old tradition to me," he says. "Everybody had a song on there. Brad [Whitford] wrote songs with Steven Tyler. Tom [Hamilton] wrote some himself. We had done it every other way, so we decided to go back to the old way. [Producer] Jack [Douglas] was there helping us. It worked out so well. The record was…is a great record."

I actually really liked the last Aerosmith record. Bought two copies, one for myself and another as a gift. Hope Joe isn't too serious about this being it.

(Classic Rock) Joe Perry says he is excited by a number of songs he has penned for his next solo album. The Aerosmith guitarist hopes to put out his sixth solo record - the follow up to 2009's Have Guitar, Will Travel - sometime next year.

And he says he has "about six songs" he's really excited about already written. He plans to complete the record once he's done promoting his upcoming memoir Rocks: My Life In And Out Of Aerosmith.

Perry tells ArtistDirect about the project, "I've got about six songs I'm really excited about. I want to get into them as soon as possible. That's the main focus now."

On new Aerosmith material, Perry says the band will likely get together in 2015 to work on a follow up to 2012's Music From Another Dimension.

I remember Steven did some interviews where he mentioned he was working on a solo album himself, I year ago I want to say. But he hasn't talked much about it since, I'm guessing those plans fizzled out? Shame, would have been interesting to see what he would have done on his own. My money would d have been on it being a pop album, after his stint on American idol.

Steven released a couple of songs but did not have much repercussion.




About Music From Another Dimension, I like a good number of songs. Legendary Child, Tell Me, Street Jesus, Lover Alot, Out Go The Lights and Luv XXX are great.

Mfad was a mess. All the songs were songs that didn't make other albums.
