Aerosmith: "Rocks": 2CD 35 Anniversary Edition Out in November

Sony Japan have announced a November 2nd release date for the 35 Anniversary Commemorative Edition of Aerosmiths legendary «Rocks» album. The two-CD set will feature the entire album plus assorted rarities and live tracks from the era. More details will be revealed soon. 

The raw and raucous «Rocks» is the fourth album by Aerosmith, released May 3, 1976 and featured such stand-out tracks like "Back In The Saddle", "Rats In The Cellar", "Sick As A Dog" and "Nobody's Fault". The album peaked at #3 in the US, #14 in Canada and #46 in Sweden. 

Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has told Rolling Stone that the band's new album is almost done and should be released in March. Aerosmith have been recording with long-time producer Jack Douglas (who worked on such classic albums as 1974's «Get Your Wings», 1975's «Toys In The Attic», and the aforementioned «Rocks» album) on their 14th studio album.

Douglas stated about the process in a recent online update: "For those who are asking, this album will be raw, nasty, tough rock with a good deal of the old Aerosmith 'tongue in cheek.'"
