My favorite band Aerosmith is doing something VERY cool to drum up excitement for their new album, Music From Another Dimension. The album will be out Tuesday, Nov. 6. That also happens to be election day in America... so it makes sense that Aerosmith will host their big surprise concert the day before in their hometown of Boston. The band isn't releasing the exact location yet. Here's the press release.
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 would LIKE 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.
