New album out August 21st. The first album without Richie Sambora.

 

New single 'Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning' out end of July.

 

 

From dnaindia.com:

 

Popular rock band Bon Jovi will release a special fan album, "Burning Bridges" next month, leading up to its overseas tour that is scheduled for September.

The band will also be unveiling two new tracks before the release of the special album on August 21, reported Billboard.

"Burning Bridges, which will be released on August 21st, is an album for fans and will accompany an upcoming international tour.

"The band is hard at work on their next album, which will see a full-scale release in 2016," a spokesperson confirmed.

The first track, "We Don't Run", is co-written by lead singer Jon Bon Jovi and Grammy-winning producer John Shanks.

"Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning", the second single, is said to be a happier, more romantic, bright pop song with a hooky chorus.

"Burning Bridges" follows 2013's platinum-selling "What About Now", which became Bon Jovi's fifth chart-topping smash hit.

I don't mind songs like this, but there's nothing exciting about it, either. Also, the title just invokes memories of a previous Bon Jovi song that's much better, "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night."

 

I read somewhere else that "We Don't Run" is supposed to be quite a rocker. I'm curious to find out just how much it is.

 

I feel like I've been more patient and understanding with Bon Jovi than most people, but even I felt the frustration with the last album and so far this is more of the same. Again, I don't think that it's anything to hate by itself, but it's not good enough to really make people want to listen again.

How are you hearing the song, man? Would love to hear it.

 

I'm also in the anti-hate crowd when it comes to Bon Jovi and will be interested to hear this one. Can;t believe they're actually going through with an album without Sambora. I wonder how it will sound. I haven't read or heard anything about that whole situation, other than a quick word at the time when Sambora was supposedly kicked out of the band. I think I just put it down to the media looking for a story and making something of nothing, and I just assumed he was back in the band the week after. But I guess there's more to it. What's the story?

 

Also, are the other 3 guys still there, and who's the new guitarist?

I heard something about Phil X filling in, but don't know if replacing.

First 6 for me, as I think "These Days" is also a great album

Agree, first 6

Never been a big fan. Turned me off when Jon Bon Dickhead said he would never again do the style that made them successful. Another John Waite..... hates the discs that made them a household name. Bon Jovi really hasn't been Bon Jovi since KTF.

 

Fuck you Jon.

Wow, really? What era are we talking about... when these songs were originally recorded? I assume they're all recent recordings, obviously?

 

Cool news about the new album next year too.

Listen to 'We Don't Run': http://www.republicplaybook.com/track/bon-jovi-we-dont-run/

 

It's not that bad. Pretty good in fact.

 

Yep, I like that. Good modern rock song. I wish he'd quit the inspiro lyrics in most every song these days, but otherwise it's good stuff. I like the guitar too. Simple but cool in a modern rock way.

I didn't like that at all.

 

Sounds like a lot of synthetic processing going on in that track, both in the instrumentation and Jon's vocals.

 

Have they ditched the organic sound nowadays?

Listened to the Saturday / Sunday track whatever it's called yesterday, really boring. Is ''We Don't Run'' better? Can't listen to it right now... But why do they promote this as an ''album for the fans'' then what have all their previous albums been??? I can't blame Jon or the band for trying to change their sound, people change and that's ok for a band that's been around for 3 decades. But is it too much to ask to grow some balls once in a while and rock out??

All leftovers from the last two albums minus the two new songs.

'We Don't Run' is clearly intended to win new younger fans, it has that really modern vibe, probably a little 'New Republic' going on the chorus, quite catchy and atmospheric, don't mind it, not bad I agree :)

So they weren't good enough for the last 2 albums (which were very ordinary, especially that last piece of garbage) but they're good enough to serve up to fans now?!?!?!

Yeah but those were mostly left overs from GOOD albums. The last two BJ albums were shit and now we get to enjoy the worst of those? Not interested...

But who's taste do you trust? You never know; their idea of the shit songs might actually be the better songs according to their older fans? I'm definitely NOT saying this to be fact, but you never know. In fact, there's only one way to find out for sure, and we all know what that is. ;)

If this was July 22, 1987 you and I would be in the middle of the street, fighting.

 

But it's July 22, 2015, and I couldn't agree more.
