New Aerosmith Documentary Teases Band's Most Critical Tour


Aerosmith


'Rock for the Rising Sun', directed by Casey Patrick Tebo, will be out July 23 on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.

Steven Tyler has recently offered Billboard tidbits about upcoming Aerosmith documentary, "Rock for the Rising Sun". In the Casey Patrick Tebo movie, fans will be treated with footage from the 2011 tour in Japan that chronicles the end to the break-up saga of the Boston-based rock band during the couple of years prior.

"We'd just broken up for crazy f*****g reasons, and I went away to get my head straight again ... We were just all in such a bad place that we didn't realize our self-worth," the frontman said to the site. "I took going to Japan and playing those shows for the band to realize its own magic again. Somewhere along the line there it got the band happy again, and we thought, 'Holy s**t, we gotta do a f*****g record right now!' So, yeah, that tour helped us to a new album."

The father of actress Liv Tyler also revealed that it was Tebo, the band's videographer on tour, who first came up with the idea of making the documentary. "He shows up in L.A. and goes, 'Would you be interested in doing a full-length feature motion picture about what you did in Japan?' " Tyler recalled.

"And we said, 'Well, show us what you got,' and he put together such great footage of us playing there, six shows and all the songs that we'd never done before ('A Lick and a Promise', 'One Way Street'), and it was amazing and we said, 'Yeah, of course.' So hats off to Casey, man."

"Rock for the Rising Sun" will also feature live performances of 17 songs and bonus material. It is due out July 23 on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
