Well, die hard Aerosmith fans can rest easy. Or as easy as anyone can rest while cranking Toys in the Attic up to 11 on the ol’ stereo. The ‘Smith have announced Tyler is officially still the band’s vocalist via a puckish video clip on their website in which the singer declares, “I just auditioned and I got the gig.” The band have also released details of a European summer tour.

Are you surprised by the news? Excited? Bored? And which is more ridiculous: the recent Aerosmith shenanigans or the hat Tyler is wearing in the clip? Let us know!
