“Brad Whitford and Joe Perry are playing better guitar than ever. Steven Tyler is playful, happy, and singing all of those impossible high notes. Joey Kramer has a drum groove like no other. And Tom Hamilton…continues to be the steady anchor to this ship.”
–Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, Loaded)
SEATTLE WEEKLY, August 10, 2012
AEROSMITH ain’t messing around.
America’s greatest rock band delivered absolutely killer sets on the first leg of their triumphant, sold-out The Global Warming Tour this past summer, with critics dropping comments like (we kid you not, see below) “stunning…jaw-dropping…
They ain’t done yet. More prisoners will be taken when Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) return for the second leg of The Global Warming Tour launching November 8. The month-long, 14-city arena tour will take the band to New York City (Madison Square Garden), Los Angeles (Staples Center) and Las Vegas (MGM Grand Garden Arena), and will be making a stop at BB&T Center (formerly BankAtlantic Center) December 9, 2012. They’re fully armed with career-defining hits and blazing songs from their new album MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION, out November 6 on Columbia Records. They’re the only band of their stature with all-original members and who are playing better than ever before.

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 and their first studio album of all-new material in 11 years. There has been a witch’s brew boiling for 10 years, and they’re about to blow the cover off. The album 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 “FreedomFighter” 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” is now impacting at Hot AC and “Lover A Lot” at Rock, Active Rock, and Classic Rock.
