According to guitarist Joe Perry, the band will be getting back together next month to finally get back to work on their new album.

Aerosmith's 15th studio album is long over due, but it looks like the guys are finally going to be getting back to work starting next month.  Joe Perry told Reuters that everyone plans to join producer Jack Douglas in the studio to resume work on it.  It will be the first album with new material on it since their 2001 album Just Push Play.

Most of the guys in Aersosmith have been working on writing new stuff for this album, but Perry was unable to join them in February for the writing session.  This isn't the first time that Aerosmith has worked with Jack Douglas.  He did work on several classic Aerosmith albums in the 70's including Toys In The Attic and Rocks.  Douglas also worked with Aerosmith on 2004's Honkin' A Bobo, which was a collection of covers the guys wanted to do.

No date as to when the album will be completed, but Perry also said that the band would need to take a break from recording in October to set out on a South American tour.
