Aerosmith's Steven Tyler has said that the band may just go the independent route for future releases.

The singer made the comment on a Thursday conference call with reporters while promoting the band's upcoming album Music From Another Dimension, there final release on the current contract with Columbia.

If the band stays together, yeah, we'll definitely go that route, something somewhere over there. We've been keeping record companies stocked with millions of shekels for years, been making a lot of people rich -- not that we haven't, but every now and then you get into arguments with labels (and) you think, 'Where is all this money going?' We've definitely thought of putting stuff out. I was very successful last year with a (single) called 'It Feels So Good.' It proves it can happen.

In a separate statement, Joe Perry seemed to contradict the plans, saying that Columbia has always been supportive of the band.
