Joe Perry has expressed uncertainty about the possibility of Aerosmith creating another studio album in the future.
“At this juncture, our main focus is to tour as extensively as possible. We want to hit the stage and entertain our fans. That’s where our attention lies,” stated the 72-year-old guitarist in an interview with Classic Rock.
Aerosmith, whose last album release was Music From Another Dimension! in 2012, is currently preparing for their upcoming Peace Out tour, scheduled to kick off in September. The tour will include performances in Toronto and Montreal.
Perry acknowledged the potential for working on new music but expressed doubt due to Steven Tyler’s preferences, their age, and the demanding nature of album production. “I’m constantly playing and writing, but at this point, it’s hard to say. My primary objective is to successfully complete this upcoming tour and provide an unforgettable live experience for our fans.”
Furthermore, Perry mentioned that he doesn’t foresee finding the time to create a follow-up to his 2018 solo album, Sweetzerland Manifesto.
Aerosmith has released a total of 15 studio albums from 1973 to 2012.
In 2021, Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford shared his doubts about the band’s future performances, citing age as a significant factor. During an appearance on the Live From Nerdville podcast, he expressed that the touring lifestyle was no longer conducive to his well-being. “After 50 years of that, I feel it’s time to embark on a new chapter in my life. I don’t want to pass away in a hotel room somewhere.”
