VIDEO: Aerosmith discover a new energy while making latest album

Aerosmith spoke with Fuse TV recently about making their forthcoming new album, “Music From Another Dimension.”

Due November 6, the project marks the band's 15th studio album and their first studio collection of all-new material in 11 years.

According to Steven Tyler, the band discovered a new energy by revisiting methods that worked for them in their earlier days.

“The band has been around for 40 years [and] we found a new energy,” he says. “An energy in fighting and making up; an energy in not playing forever; an energy in getting together in a room with an old producer named Jack Douglas that we could sit in there and write the songs all together like the old days. Sometimes you need a little energy to blow into the mix because it gets a little boring putting a record out, going on tour, putting a record out, going on tour….so this definitely had a whole new vibe to it.”

The album was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band's studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Douglas, Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen.

This week, Aerosmith announced the second leg of "The Global Warming Tour."

Along with support act Cheap Trick, the Boston band will hit 14 cities across North America on the 5-week swing which starts November 8 in Oklahoma City.

Tickets go on sale Monday, September 24 at 10:00 a.m. (local time) at
