Aerosmith's fifteenth studio album

Aerosmith's fifteenth studio album is the upcoming album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, slated to be released in 2010.[1][2] The album will be produced by Brendan O'Brien, who has produced many major rock albums,[1] and previously worked with Aerosmith, mixing their 1993 album Get a Grip.[3]



The album, which currently does not have a title, has been a work in progress since 2006 and has no release date yet.[4] The album could include material written as much as 20 years ago, left off albums such as Pump.[5] The album could also include brand new material written since their last album, the blues cover album, Honkin' on Bobo (2004).[6] When released, the album will be the band's first studio album in six years and first studio album of original material in nine years (since 2001's Just Push Play).[1]

The band has been writing or recording the album since at least May 2006, after the conclusion of their Rockin' the Joint Tour and after lead singer Steven Tyler had recovered from throat surgery.[4] Recording was interrupted, however, when bassist Tom Hamilton underwent surgery for throat cancer, which began in August 2006 and continued for the remainder of the year.[7] In addition, during this time, the rest of the band (with David Hull filling in for Hamilton) embarked on the Route of All Evil Tour with Mötley Crüe,[8] in support of the band's compilation Devil's Got a New Disguise - The Very Best of Aerosmith (released in October 2006), which also contained two new tracks, which were older outtakes from Pump and Get a Grip re-recorded for the album.[9] The compilation was intended to fulfill Aerosmith's contract with Sony and tide fans over until the band's new studio album was released.[5]

In early 2007, the band worked on the album some more, before embarking on a world tour, their first venture to include performances outside North America or Japan in eight years.[10] The world tour lasted from April until September and saw the band visit nineteen countries.

In November 2007, the band headed to the studio once again to record more material for the album.[11] Recording was interrupted in the spring of 2008, however, due to surgeries to both Steven Tyler[12] and lead guitarist Joe Perry.[13][14] Both artists scheduled surgeries to fix problems with their feet and knees, respectively, that had plagued them for years, brought on by strenuous touring and prior injuries. In June 2008, the band promoted their new video game Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, shortly after Tyler had exited rehabilitation for his surgery.[13][15]

The band headed to the studio again in September of 2008 to work on the album, but was interrupted at the turn of the new year, due to a second surgery to repair Perry's knee, which led to a Venezuelan concert to be canceled.[16][17] In mid-February 2009, it was announced that the band was back recording the album and that it would be produced by Brendan O'Brien.[18] It was also announced that the album would be recorded in live sessions, like their 2004 album Honkin' on Bobo and like their early records from the 1970s.[6] A tour with ZZ Top was also announced, which began in June 2009.[6] Although the band had hoped to finish the album before the tour started,[6] Perry said that the group "realized there wasn't any chance of getting [the album] finished before we hit the road for the summer."[19]
