AEROSMITH Frontman To Speak For Peace

On February 5, AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler will be participating in a campaign to establish a United States Department of Peace. Tyler will be speaking as part of a lobbying effort hosted by the Peace Alliance, "a nonpartisan citizen organization advocating for legislation that supports a culture of peace." Should the Peace Alliance achieve its goal of creating a Department of Peace, the department would create legislation that would reduce the level of violence, abuse, and poverty that plague our country. Steven Tyler will be appearing at the group's rally on February 5 at George Washington University in Washington D.C.

AEROSMITH is planning to mount a massive world tour this year. In an interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, guitarist Joe Perry said, "What we're looking at is coming back and playing some places we haven't played a long time. And places we've never played. It's been eight years since we've been in Europe, and I don't how long it's been since we've been in Australia, and these are all things I want to do and I know all the other guys in the band feel the same way, too — we want to get back and play back out in the world."

Perry added, "We've played America enough for different reasons and we've stayed here, but it's time for playing in other parts of the world. We're an international band and we've played out there, and it's time to get back and go to a lot of places we haven't played in awhile."

AEROSMITH and VELVET REVOLVER are expected to play dates in South America in April.

AEROSMITH is working on a new studio album that they hope to release by the middle of this year.
