AEROSMITH will head into the recording studio soon with producer Brendan O'Brien, who has previously worked with VELVET REVOLVER, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, PEARL JAM, AC/DC and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, among others. Guitarist Brad Whitford states, "So far it's going great. Everybody is pretty excited about the amount of new music and the quality of it. We're looking forward to getting our basic tracks started in about [five] days or so. I'm really quite impressed with some of the new music we're putting together — we'll have a true-to-the-spirit-of AEROSMITH record on our hands. Hopefully you won't have to wait to long. We're working hard to get it done and we're anxious to hear people's reaction to it."

AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry recently told ABC ePrep that the group is hoping to get back to its roots by "doing it more like we used to do the old records, which is the band playing live in the studio." Joe also revealed AEROSMITH is planning to kick off a North American tour around June 1, and hopes to have the album completed by then.

AEROSMITH's next studio album will be its first set of all-original material since 2001's "Just Push Play".
