The hype surrounding Bon Jovi new album keeps on getting bigger as the band plans to release it next year as well as doing an album tour.
For the meantime, Bon Jovi is moving on to the next chapter as they finally part ways with their previous recording company, Mercury Records.
“[It fulfills] a commitment to Mercury Records,” Jon Bon Jovi explained to Billboard . “After 32 years, we have parted ways. That is the big news. If you listen to ‘Burning Bridges,’ the song, it is clearly spelled out.”
Speaking of “Burning Bridges,” here’s the list of songs in it via Ultimate Classic Rock .

What’s more exciting is the band finally found a new guitarist that might be in for the long haul. Enter Matt O’Ree and here’s a brief introduction courtesy of Noise 11 .
“Matt O’Ree formed his own band The Matt O’Ree Band in New Jersey in 1994. Like Sambora, O’Ree is a bluesman at heart, citing Albert King, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan as his influences.”
Lastly, keyboardist David Bryan has revealed that they are pumped to share their new music next year when they go on a tour promoting the new album.
“We always do album/tour. We put out an album [‘What About Now’] in 2013 and toured all 2013 – 102 shows to 3 million people.” Bryan told Philly.com . “We’re back in the studio and we’ll have an album out next year. That’s our cycle.”
