Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry wants the world to know his band is looking for a new singer.

Perry posted a statement on Twitter late Monday putting to rest reports the band was on the verge of a split. Instead, the legendary rock band, whose hits include Cryin', Janie's Got a Gun and Walk This Way, is seeking a new frontman to replace Steven Tyler.

"Aerosmith is definitely NOT breaking up ... one of the members is doing his own thing and said so in the press," Perry said on Twitter.

Perry was referring to comments made by Tyler to Classic Rock magazine that he was working on "the brand of myself," indicating plans to go solo.

The 61-year-old performer made the remarks after the band's October concert in Abu Dhabi.

"Aerosmith is positively looking for a new singer to work with,'' Perry said via Twitter. "You just can't take 40 years of experience and throw it in the bin.''

Perry told the Las Vegas Sun newspaper last Friday that as far as he was concerned, Tyler had quit the band.

He also said the singer had not communicated with any members of the band since Abu Dhabi and was not returning phone calls.

The band, formed in 1970, had to cancel its world tour after Tyler fell from the stage at a concert in Sturgis, N.D., on Aug. 5. He required stitches to his head and broke a shoulder.

At the time, Perry expressed frustration with his bandmate and said Tyler had to try to "get his act together."

STEVEN TYLER JOINS JOE PERRY ONSTAGE AND SAYS "I AM NOT LEAVING AEROSMITH"

November 11, 2009

After days of speculation that Steven Tyler was out of Aerosmith, which included Twitter posts by Joe Perry stating that the band was "positively looking for a new singer to work with", the rumors appear to be put to rest. Guitarist Joe Perry, who is on tour promoting his solo album 'Have Guitar, Will Travel', was joined onstage during a show in New York by the one and only Steven Tyler.

During the show Tyler stated, "I want you to know I am not leaving Aerosmith. Joe Perry, you are a man of many colors, but I motherfucker am the rainbow", before the 'toxic twins' delved into a rendition of "Walk This Way".

I remember 2009 Sturgis, that was a crazy year up there, even for clubs up there. Hope ya all work it all out. Take care & ride safe, Lou Anne
