Aerosmith album delayed until fall

Over the past year, Aerosmith have been working in the studio on their first album of new songs in more than decade.

Months ago, producer Jack Douglas originally estimated that the project would be released this spring but, in a new interview with 97.5 K-Rock in St John’s, Newfoundland, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton says the album has been “pushed back” to September.

The news means fans will have to wait a little longer for the album, which won’t be out until after the band rocks their summer “Global Warming” tour across North America; that trek runs from June 16 in Minneapolis to August 8 in Tacoma, WA.

The main focus of the Hamilton session with K-Rock was the 60 Minutes profile on the group that aired in early March.

Tom tells the station that CBS interviewer Lara Logan distracted the band with her 'low cut top' and their piece was edited to 'nail' Steven Tyler.

"I watched it with trepidation and quite a rapid heart rate," says Hamilton. "It was tough to watch. They way they formatted it – they took comments that we made during very deep conversations, actually, and sort of barraged Steven [Tyler] with them. I thought it was a little brutal the way did it."
