Another in-studio video from Aerosmith has surfaced, with guitarist Brad Whitford laying down some riffs and vocalist Steven Tyler joining in, while drummer Joey Kramer rocks the backbeat. Producer Jack Douglas said in a recent online posting, about Aerosmith’s new CD, “The new album should be out around May 2012. I know that’s a long wait, but after the South American tour and Japan in October, November and December, we will just get back to work on it in mid-January.”

He added, “For those who are asking, this album will be raw, nasty, tough rock with a good deal of the old Aerosmith ‘tongue in cheek.'”
