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 GRAMMYs, eight 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 albums, AEROSMITH 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.
