Aerosmith Might Never Release New Album, Joe Perry Explains
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry recently shared a pessimistic stance regarding the release of full-length efforts, basically calling it pointless.

"Our contract to Sony is fulfilled and we're free agents right now," Joe told Rolling Stone. "We're trying to figure out what that means.

"I don't even know if making new albums makes sense anymore," he continued. "Maybe we'll just release an EP every six months. I don't know what the future looks like."

Part of Perry's reluctance to delve into the new album work comes from the weak response to the band's latest record, 2012's "Music From Another Dimension." After debuting on No. 5 on the US Billboard 200 chart, it pretty much just disappeared without a trace. None of the four subsequently released singles have even scraped the singles chart.

"I'm obviously disappointed it didn't work out the way it was supposed to," Perry explained. "But on the other hand, once a record is out, it's out forever. Maybe in two years someone might hear a song off it and go, 'What was that song? It should have been on the radio.' And it might hit a wave again."

But despite all the troubles, Joe remains proud of the latest Aerosmith effort. "It felt like a record in the old tradition to me," he said. "Everybody had a song on there. Brad [Whitford] wrote songs with Steven Tyler. Tom [Hamilton] wrote some himself. We had done it every other way, so we decided to go back to the old way. [Producer] Jack [Douglas] was there helping us. It worked out so well. The record was ... is a great record," he optimistically concluded.
