In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler talked about the band’s upcoming tour and why their new album will be different from the more recent ones.

First and foremost, Tyler gives a shout out to the architect who helped “The Bad Boys from Boston” find their legendary sound, Jack Douglas, who is helping the band with their new album.
Tyler on Douglas:
“We’re gonna have a vintage sound, ’cause we’re going to tape and a lot of good things like that. We’re keeping tracks lean, not a lot of overdubs, and like I said, we’re using Jack to his fullest. So you’re gonna hear some stuff where you might think Aerosmith’s back.”
Aerosmith will be back indeed because not only is the producer on the same page, but so is the band. To Tyler, it feels like the Aerosmith of old.
Tyler on recording the new album:
“We’ve been in the studio for the last month. I’m having such a good time writing again. You got the songs right now where they’re like shells, with no lyrics and no melody, and I get to fill in the blanks like I did with ‘Back in the Saddle’ when it was just a track.”
Lastly, Tyler took time to briefly discuss the band’s upcoming Summer tour.
Tyler on touring:
“June 18th it starts. So spread the word.”
Spread the word? Yes sir!
