AEROSMITH Creates Anthem For The NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS - Audio Available!
American Football and American Rock N' Roll are a match made in heaven and hell. We all hear some of our favorite songs on a weekly basis during the NFL games here in the United States. And we all know that the most memorable Super Bowl halftime shows have been the ones with Rock bands performing!
Recently, Pepsi and the National Football League (NFL) announced the expansion of the Pepsi NFL Anthems program, a national campaign that brings to life originally created anthems for seven NFL teams around the league. The latest world-renowned artists to be featured in the program include one of the generation's most influential artists, Lenny Kravitz, who penned "Like a Jet" for the team he grew up cheering for in New York, and America's Greatest Rock Band AEROSMITH, staunch supporters of the New England Patriots, who have released an anthem titled "Legendary Child - Patriots Anthem".
The new tracks are currently available for free download at PepsiAnthems.com, and join originally created anthems by Kid Rock (Detroit Lions), Kelly Clarkson (Dallas Cowboys), Ice Cube (Oakland Raiders), Travie McCoy (New York Giants), as well as a Wiz Khalifa remix of "Black and Yellow" (Pittsburgh Steelers).
"This is a program the band and I were excited to get behind as it is a true representation of our allegiance to the New England Patriots and the city of Boston," said AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler. "There's something about the word legendary and the words New England Patriots that have an amazing ring to them. We're excited and proud to be part of that," added AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry.
To further bring the Pepsi NFL Anthems program to life, Pepsi has created seven :30 spots that celebrate each of the original anthems, the fans' passion for their teams and a variety of authentic in-game footage. The advertising campaign will kick off on Sunday, October 21 when the New York Jets take on the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. TV spots featuring the AEROSMITH's "Legendary Child – Patriots Anthem" and Lenny Kravitz's "Like A Jet", whose respective anthems-inspired teams will face off against one another, will air during the game broadcast.
In addition to New York and Boston, ads featuring the other anthems will roll out in additional markets and air throughout the remainder of the NFL regular season.
As previously reported, AEROSMITH — Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) — will release their first studio collection of all-NEW material in 11 years. The album is entitled 'Music From Another Dimension' and it was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band's studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen. 'Music From Another Dimension' will be released on November 6th via Columbia Records.
