Aerosmith is scheduled to be out on tour with Slash through a September 12 show in Nova Scotia, Canada, but guitarist Joe Perry says fans will have quite a bit to look forward to after he and his band mates wrap up their 2014 itinerary.

As previously reported, Perry will be releasing his autobiography, Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith , on October 7, and he reveals to ArtistDirect.com that he's also about halfway done with a new solo album.

"I've got about six songs I'm really excited about," Perry tells the website.  "I want to get into them as soon as possible.  That's the main focus now."

The 63-year-old rocker also says he'll spend about a month promoting his book, including some in-store signing appearances.

"We're thinking of different ways to use the Internet to promote it," Joe adds, revealing that he's planning to release four free songs that are "really representative of some of my solo work" to those who purchase the memoir.

In addition, Perry tells ArtistDirect.com that Steven Tyler also is hoping to complete a solo album, and says that Aerosmith may even "get together and do another record" sometime next year.

Aerosmith's next concert is scheduled for this Friday in Tinley Park, Illinois.
