After the New York Post reported that members of Aerosmith are "barely speaking to each other" over lackluster album sales and tour tickets, guitarist Joe Perry has responded to the rumors once and for all.

Referring to the news, Perry explained to "Eddie Trunk Live" radio show that "it must have been a slow news week."

Perry shares, "We were wondering, 'Who's saying this?' and 'Why are they saying this?' It's totally wrong and irrelevant. The least they could have done was get [the facts] right. [The people they quoted] haven't had anything to do with the band in 10 or 12 years. The band is getting along better than ever. We were thinking about [releasing a statement], but then why even validate it by even answering?"

Aerosmith's Global Warming tour wraps up Dec. 13 in Nashville, Tenn. After a bit of a break, Perry hopes the bands is back on the road next summer.
