Aerosmith's Joe Perry says they will kick off their North American tour in June. Aerosmith is currently recording a new album in Los Angeles which will hopefully be released in May - just before the tour starts. This will be the first studio album with original material in 11 years.

The last time Aerosmith toured North America was when they went on their 'Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock' outing in 2010.

I'm really looking forward to hearing the new material, and I hope they plan a stop in Minneapolis on their tour. Dates should be released in the near future as the band plans to have tickets go on sale in March.
