Despite reports from Joe Perry two months ago, Aerosmith is not ready to put out another album. They are, however, still ready to hit the road. Beginning June, the Boston rockers will trek across North America with a heavy satchel of hits, possibly some new cuts, and a slew of bearded Texans. Yes, you heard that right, Steven Tyler and co. will be sharing touring duties with none other than ZZ Top. Someone get the aspirin, please.

As of now, it’s just a North American tour; however, while speaking to Billboard.com, Perry hinted that the band could continue through South America, Europe, and even Japan. That seems pretty productive for a group that’s hardly found success in the studio as of late. There are reasons for the delay, though.

“[We have] probably two or three (songs) that could be mixed right now, maybe even more,” Perry insists. “But there’s a long way between two or three and doing the 12 or 14 that you have to have to do a whole project.” To counter the naysayers, the famed guitarist (who has a striking resemblance to Keith Richards at times) added that he’s currently pummeling away at a solo record. “I have a big chunk of time before the tour, so I’m gonna try to get the solo record done as soon as I can.” Here’s the real kicker: “Chances are you’re gonna be hearing that before you hear an Aerosmith record…”

Well, it’s back to Jush Push Play, folks. Quick, forget the Advil, go grab a bucket, I think I’m nauseous. Someone please turn off “Jaded”…
