Aerosmith Explain Album Delay

The band say that they have re-considered their release plans

If all had gone to plan we would be just a few weeks away from hearing the brand new album from Aerosmith. A couple of problems later and the band have pushed the release back to November.

"It’s unfortunate,” guitarist Brad Whitford tells the Long Branch-Eatontown Patch. "We were going to have the song ‘Legendary Child’ as part of a movie soundtrack that was going to come out this summer and the movie ["G.I. Joe: Retaliation”] was delayed to next year, so the whole marketing campaign that went along with that and the album’s release went right down the toilet. So the record company wanted time for a whole new approach and they wanted to get a slot to release the album they thought would be good for it. It’ll be worth the wait.”

Whitford’s comments follow those of singer Steven Tyler, who told the Alan Cox Show on 100.7 WMMS Cleveland last month that "Too many people [other notable recording artists] are releasing [new albums] those weeks [in late summer]. We don't wanna step on their release dates. So we just said, 'You know what?! We've got the goods... ain't no doubt about it. We'll wait another couple of months.'"
