AEROSMITH: April 2015 Marks 40th Anniversary of Critically Acclaimed ‘Toys In The Attic’ Album

AEROSMITH: April 2015 Marks 40th Anniversary of Critically Acclaimed ‘Toys In The Attic’ Album

aerosmith-2015-tour-1

With AEROSMITH set for another massive summer tour, the iconic and pioneering band has one more reason to celebrate in 2015: the 40th anniversary of the release of their landmark album TOYS IN THE ATTIC.  Released April 8, 1975 , the album was AEROSMITH’s third release, becoming an eight-time platinum album and yielding such immortal tracks as “Walk This Way” and “Sweet Emotion.

Critical support for the album included: 

Gordon Fletcher’s Rolling Stone album review (7/31/1975) noted: “a five-piece Boston hard-rock band with almost unlimited potential…Aerosmith can be very good…and material like ‘Walk This Way,’ ‘Sweet Emotion’ and the title cut adequately proves this…” 

Robert Christgau gave the album a B+ review for Consumer Guide saying, “These boys are learning a trade in record time…Tyler has a gift for the dirty line as well as the dirty look–anybody who can hook a song called ‘Adam’s Apple’ around the phrase ‘love at first bite’ deserves to rehabilitate a blue blues like ‘Big Ten Inch Record.’” 

All Music Guide’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine added: “The success of the album derives from a combination of an increased sense of songwriting skills and purpose. Not only does Joe Perry turn out indelible riffs like ‘Walk This Way,’ ‘Toys in the Attic”…but Steven Tyler has fully embraced sleaziness as his artistic muse. Taking his cue from the old dirty blues ‘Big Ten Inch Record,’ Tyler writes with a gleeful impishness about sex throughout Toys in the Attic , whether it’s the teenage heavy petting of ‘Walk This Way,’ the promiscuous ‘Sweet Emotion,’ or the double-entendres of ‘Uncle Salty’ and ‘Adam’s Apple.’ The rest of Aerosmith, led by Perry’s dirty, exaggerated riffing, provide an appropriately greasy backing. Before Toys in the Attic, no other hard rock band sounded like this…Aerosmith was a gritty, street-wise hard rock band who played their blues as blooze and were in it for a good time; Toys in the Attic crystallizes that attitude.” 

Highlights from a  VH1.COM (4/7/15) piece entitled “‘Toys in the Attic’ Turns 40: Ranking The Songs On Aerosmith’s Classic Album,” include:  “You See Me Crying,” on which “rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford…cascades luscious licks atop the song’s crescendo, turning its closing moments–as well as the album’s–into a breathless rush of, indeed, sweet emotion.”  On “Round and Round,” Joey Kramer’s “initial climbing drums that collapse into a cosmic stomp,” while “‘Sweet Emotion’ seems to float up out of a desert heat-storm, powered by Tom Hamilton’s looping bass-line…” And on “Walk This Way”:  “Joey Kramer’s stuttering kick-off drumbeats on ‘Walk This Way’ blow open a path for Joe Perry’s guitar riff, which is arguably his most famous and inarguably one of the most perfect in all of rock.” The title track is “a tsunami of [Whitford’s] guitar and [Kramer’s] drums and [Hamilton’s] bass that somehow go backward and forward at the same time.”

Aerosmith - 'Toys In The Attic'

Aerosmith – ‘Toys In The Attic’

Beyond the critical acclaim TOYS IN THE ATTIC generated, musicians have honored the work–which reached #11 on the Billboard album charts–by covering a variety of the album’s tracks.  Most notably, “Walk This Way,” a 1986 Billboard Top 4 singlecollaboration with Run–D.M.C. and a pivotal song in the burgeoning rock-rap genre, featured TYLER (on co-lead vocals) and PERRY (guitar).  The track went on to become an international hit and earned both groups a Soul Train Music Award for Best Rap-Single (1987).  In 1999, AEROSMITH and Run–D.M.C. teamed up again to perform the song, this time with Kid Rock at the MTV Video Music Awards.  A few years later, AEROSMITH again performed the song–accompanied by NSYNC, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, and Nelly–to an international viewing audience as part of the Super Bowl XXXV halftime show (January 2001). Additional accolades for “Walk This Way”include inclusions in: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll; Rolling Stone ranked the original version of “Walk This Way” at #346 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, while the version with Run–D.M.C. is ranked at #293; “VH1: 100 Greatest Rock Songs” included “Walk This Way” at #35 (2000); Q magazine placed it at #23 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks (2005); Rolling Stone ranked the original version of “Walk This Way” at #34 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time (2008); VH1’s “100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs” included “Walk This Way” at #8 and VH1 ranked the version with Run–D.M.C. at #4 on VH1 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs (2009).

Other recorded covers from TOYS IN THE ATTIC include R.E.M.’s 1986 version of “Toys in the Attic,” a B-side to “Fall on Me”; the track also appears on the band’s Dead Letter Office, as well as the 1993 reissue of Life’s Rich Pageant; The String Cheese Incident’stake on “Walk This Way” appears on the jam/bluegrass band’s 1997 self-titled live album A String Cheese Incident; and Boston ska band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones included “Sweet Emotion” on their EP Where’d You Go?   Other cover versions include Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon, The Answer, Warrant and Ratt on “Sweet Emotion”; Velvet Revolver on “No More No More”; and Sum 41 along with rappers Ja Rule and Nelly on “Walk This Way.”

Up next for AEROSMITH, beginning June 13, the band will return to the road with their“Blue Army Tour 2015.” The trek will take the band’s all original members–Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford–to 15 cities before concluding in Grand Rapids, MI on Tuesday, August 4. Immediately following the tour, AEROSMITH will perform on Friday, August 7 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s first-ever Concert for Legends. The concert–part of the 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival–will pay tribute to the legends of the game on the eve of the Enshrinement for the Class of 2015.

AEROSMITH: Rock Legends To “Let Rock Rule” With North American Summer Tour

AEROSMITH: Rock Legends To “Let Rock Rule” With North American Summer Tour

Prepare To Be Rocked!

Prepare To Be Rocked!

Who better to declare “LET ROCK RULE than AEROSMITH, America’s Greatest Rock Band?

Rock’s most lethal army–Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford–and special guest SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will join forces for “LET ROCK RULE,” this summer’s definitive rock & roll experience.

Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the LET ROCK RULE tour kicks off on Thursday, July 10 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre inWantagh, NY (see full itinerary below).  AEROSMITH and SLASH–longtime friends who’ve performed together throughout the years–will also take over Boston, MA. (Xfinity Center), Los Angeles, CA (The Forum) and San Francisco, CA (Sleep Train Pavilion) among other cities, before wrapping Friday, September 12 in Sydney, NS, Canada (Open Hearth Park).

This summer’s hottest ticket will go on sale to the general public starting on Saturday, April 12 through the Live Nation mobile app and atwww.livenation.com. The first round of tour dates are below with additional dates for a second leg to be announced shortly.

“Looking forward to inciting a riot and building the tribal bonfire even higher–it’s a win win with Slash,” said Steven Tyler.

Says Joe Perry: “The writing’s on the wall–Aerosmith and Slash.  We’re gonna let rock rule this summer.  Catch us if you can.”

Says Slash: “Aerosmith is one of my all time favorite bands, and one of the greatest rock ‘n roll bands of all time. It’s  an honor for me to go out & tour with them and  keep the rock ‘n roll banner flying high.”

The excitement all started when JOE PERRY took it to the streets with RISK, the famous graffiti artist, last Thursday night for “LET ROCK RULE” and things began ramping up mysteriously when the AEROSMITH logo, and the tour announcement date of 4.8.14, was bombed on various buildings in downtown Los Angeles by JOE PERRY and RISK. Following this, AEROSMITH drummer JOEY KRAMMER stepped up the momentum and went to Downtown Austin with street artist, CHUNK, to continue the “LET ROCK RULE” tagging. It was all first reported by TMZ–http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/04/joe-perry-grafitti-aerosmith-spray-paint-logo-tour/–and the “bombing” has continued every night.

JOE PERRY says, “I have always felt that AEROSMITH was Americas hometown band and what better way than to take matters into our own hands to spread the word.”

Earlier today (April 8) STEVEN TYLER and JOE PERRY revealed–on the Ryan Seacrest radio show–that they would perform a free set to announce the “LET ROCK RULE” tour. AEROSMITH, with a special guest appearance by SLASH, played a roof-raising set for the assembled crowd at the Whisky A Go Go, the historic Los Angeles venue where they performed their first LA gig in 1973.

AEROSMITH’s North American summer dates will follow the band’s overseas dates kicking off May 14 in Istanbul, Turkey and will hit 16 countries including stops in Russia, France, and the U.K. before wrapping July 2 in Kiev, Ukraine.

AEROSMITH: To Perform On The Streets Of Boston Monday, November 5th!

AEROSMITH: To Perform On The Streets Of Boston Monday, November 5th!

Aerosmith

AEROSMITH–those Bad Boys from Boston–are known for throwing a helluva party, and they’ve got a special one planned for their beloved hometown on the day before Election Day, Monday, November 5.

They’re planning to show up somewhere in the city, around noon, and play on the streets. That’s all STEVEN TYLER (vocals), JOE PERRY (guitar), BRAD WHITFORD (guitar), TOM HAMILTON (bass) and JOEY KRAMER (drums) are telling us for now. Well, they wouldLIKE to tell us more, but they’re cooperating with authorities who will let them reveal the location the morning of November 5. 

They’ve got a good reason to celebrate: their new album MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION! (Columbia Records) is out November 6.  And they got a message, too: people, get out and vote!  For whomever you like.  Just do it. Be a “Freedom Fighter,” to quote a song title from the new album. “Anyone who votes is a Freedom Fighter,” says JOE PERRY.

America’s greatest rock band will then take the party on the road as they’re set to return for the second leg of The Global Warming Tour launching November 8. The month-long, 14-city arena tour will bring them and support act Cheap Trick to New York City (Madison Square Garden)Los Angeles (Staples Center) and Las Vegas (MGM Grand Garden Arena), among other cities.  Expect nothing less than killer sets and prisoners will most certainly be taken. See all the tour dates at the links below.

MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION!–recently chosen by PEOPLE magazine (9-17-12) as one of “5 Must Have Albums For Fall”–marks AEROSMITH’s 15th studio album.  It was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band’s studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen. The album abounds with one highlight after another, including “Out Go The Lights,” “Oh Yeah,” “Luv XXX,” “We All Fall Down,” “Street Jesus” and “Can’t Stop Loving You,” on which Tyler duets with Carrie Underwood.  The album also includes “Freedom Fighter”which features Johnny Depp on backing vocals. The album’s first two singles have been released simultaneously to radio and are now lighting up the airwaves: “What Could Have Been Love” at Hot AC and “Lover A Lot” at Rock, Active Rock, and Classic Rock.

AEROSMITH are a living piece of American music history, having sold over 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into theRock and Roll Hall of Fame.  They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYseight American Music Awards,six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards among many other honors.  Proving that they can cross genre-boundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC’s “Walk This Way.” With scores of multi-platinum albumsAEROSMITH continues to inspire generations to get their wings, get a grip and just push play. It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time.

There has been a witch’s brew boiling for 10 years, and America’s greatest rock band is about to blow the cover off.

On November 6, Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) will release MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION on Columbia Records.  It marks the band’s 15th studio album and their first studio album of all-new material in 11 years. The album was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band’s studio in Massachusetts; it wasproduced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracksproduced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen.

MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION’s first two singles have been released simultaneously to radio this week.  “What Could Have Been Love” is now impacting at Hot AC and “Lover A Lot” at Rock, Active Rock, and Classic Rock.  The album features 15 new tracks, including two songs that audiences inNorth America were treated to on the first leg of the band’s triumphant, sold-out “Global Warming Tour”: “Oh Yeah” and “Legendary Child,” the video for which is posted here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoDk7nIVuHc.

MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION presents AEROSMITH in ferociously fine form and at the peak of their powers.  They’re the only band of their stature with all-original members and who are playing better than ever have before.  The album abounds with one highlight after another, including “Out Go The Lights,” “Oh Yeah,” “Luv XXX,” “We All Fall Down,” “Street Jesus” and “Can’t Stop Loving You,” on which Tyler duets with Carrie Underwood.  The album also includes “Freedom Fighter”which features Johnny Depp on backing vocals.  See the full track listing below.

AEROSMITH wrapped their U.S. tour August 12 in Bristow, VA. The dates included the band’s triumphant, sold-out return to the legendary Hollywood Bowl  (August 6) in Los Angeles, whereDepp joined the band onstage (http://www.msopr.com/n/client-roster/aerosmith/).  A new leg of fall dates will soon be announced to support the release of MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION.

“It’s not that it took ten years,” STEVEN TYLER says, “but that we were busy getting ready!”

“This is the album we wanted to make since the band got back together in 1984,” JOE PERRY says.  “Can’t complain about number one singles or album-driven sold-out world tours, as we blaze the Aerosmith trail with our fans.  But this is the record that when the five of us are in a room yelling turn up the volume, that room could be 1325 Commonwealth Avenue (a reference to the band’s first apartment where they lived and wrote their first song).”

A deluxe version of MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION will include:

? Four live performance videos:  “Rats In The Cellar,” “Train Kept A Rollin,” “Oh Yeah” and “Same Old Song and Dance”
