His touring band features Brad Whitford and Gary Cherone of Extreme.

Los Angeles, CA (November 9, 2018) -- Joe Perry--legendary guitarist, co-founding member, principal songwriter and co-producer of Aerosmith--has just announced a new single, video and tour dates with his Aerosmith bandmate Brad Whitford and Gary Cherone of Extreme.

"Quake" featuring Cherone is being released today. The hard-charging track with Perry's killer riffs and Cherone's gutsy vocals is from soon-to-be-released vinyl-only version of Perry's Sweetzerland Manifesto (Roman Records) and was debuted live earlier this year (January 16) when Cherone joined Perry at the latter's two-hour plus set at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. The "Quake"video features Perry--the essence of cool--alone with his guitar and amp, firing up the song alongside the lyrics and a super-hip dancing couple who embody the tune's freewheeling rock & roll spirit. It was directed by Joe's son Roman Perry. Watch the video here.

Can an entry-level modeler hang with the big dogs?

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.
