JOE PERRY: AEROSMITH Will Make Another Album 'When The Time Is Right'

AEROSMITH's Joe Perry spoke to Consequence Of Sound about the possibility of the band releasing new music in the not-too-distant future. The guitarist, who is currently promoting the second album from his HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES supergroup, said: "Actually, I had just finished working on my last solo album [prior to the new HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES LP], so I had been in the studio for the three or four months before we started on the VAMPIRES record — so I was already rolling in the studio. It doesn't take much to get me going — I love to record. So, when the time is right, AEROSMITH will come around to do another record."

Perry went on to explain that AEROSMITH's focus has been on the band's Las Vegas "Deuces Are Wild" residency, which kicked off in April. "This Vegas [residency], we wanted it to be something new and unique, and it took up most of our time, certainly as much time as it would to make a record. We started talking about [the residency] a year ago, so it was a big production. So far, it seems to be working. I'm pretty surprised, if you wanna know the truth."

The legendary Boston rockers haven't released a new studio album since 2012's "Music From Another Dimension!" That effort was released when AEROSMITH's label, Columbia Records, was reportedly going through a leadership change, and it ended up becoming a commercial disappointment.

The lackluster response to "Music From Another Dimension!" later caused two bandmembers — Perry and drummer Joey Kramer — to question whether there's any point in AEROSMITH making future albums.

AEROSMITH is scheduled to play 17 more shows in Las Vegas before the end of the year — four in September, four in October, seven in November, and two in December. The band also has multiple-night "Deuces Are Wild" engagements booked at MGM properties in National Harbor, Maryland; Atlantic City, New Jersey; and Springfield, Massachusetts.

In addition to the "Deuces Are Wild" shows, AEROSMITH is slated to make one festival appearance this summer: July 19 at the Twin Cities Summer Jam in Shakopee, Minnesota.
