Joe Perry has admitted that he sometimes wonders if there is any point in Aerosmith making a new album but he does think new songs will be recorded before the band finish up.
Perry's last LP, 'Music From Dimension!' was released in 2012 and last year the band reported they had started working on a new song and had also been in discussions over a new album.
“I don’t know if we have time to do a whole record, but Steven and I have talked about getting together and at least throwing some stuff out before we start up again,” Perry said in a recent interview with SiriusXM (via Blabbermouth). He reported that he and singer Tyler had both put in some studio time. “It's really about the tempo and the schedule," he said. "Obviously, we've slowed down somewhat from how we used to tour, but anything's possible. I don't know yet."
He said he felt “everybody’s vibe is we’d like to have some new material. But we've got so many songs that we haven't played in so long, and other songs that we've never played, so there are a lot of things to come into consideration when you talk about a new record. Sometimes I think about, ‘What's the point?’ We've got all these songs that we've already written that have been on these albums that we'd love to play that no one's ever heard before. And I certainly love recording, and I could see it happening.”
