Rock For The Rising Sun follows the Bad Boys from Boston across Japan in the months after the devastating nuclear meltdown, will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in North America on July 23rd via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

In March 2011 Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the fall of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their Back On The Road tour to Japan, a country with which they'd always had a special relationship.

The Japanese fans came out in their droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest gigs of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full length live tracks with behind the scenes footage which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans love affair with Aerosmith and their music.

Landing in Tokyo just 6 months after Fukushima, Aerosmith began the Japanese leg of their world tour in devastating circumstances. This film directed by Casey Patrick Tebo, documents both the performances and the band’s relationship with Japan. A love letter between the Japanese fans who were living under the umbrella of recent tragedy, and the band who simply, while after being warned not to go there, went to heal with the only medicine they could... the music.
