As we reported back in January that Bon Jovi had been working on a new album. While the original release date was rumored for March, as it often happens, the date got pushed back. Needless to say, fans of the iconic classic rock band have been anxiously awaiting any hint of news on said rumors. Well the wait is over! Jon Bon Jovi and band have completed their 14th studio album, This House is Not for Sale. A 2017 tour is likely.

On Wednesday (May 25), Bon Jovi took to social media and their website to announce the news. The band tweeted a celebratory photo taken at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. The photo included band members Hugh McDonald, David Bryan, Tico Torres, producer John Shanks producer, Bon Jovi and Phil X.

Bon Jovi band members claim that they went back to their roots to record This House is Not For Sale. “I’m really proud of it,” said Jon of the new album. “It’s all about our integrity.” This will be the first album that longtime member Richie Sambora will not be apart of since he left the band in 2013.

And in an interesting twist, This House… will arrive via an old home: Universal Music Group. As Best Classic Bands had reported previously, the drama that surrounded Bon Jovi’s last album Burning Bridges, which was released in August to simultaneously fulfill a commitment to and take a jab at Mercury Records.   The well-known record label had recently dropped the band from their roster after more than 30 years of partnership.

However in March, during a solo concert in Nashville, Jon confirmed that the band had now returned to its longtime label saying that they “sobered up.” (Look closely at JBJ’s t-shirt in the Twitter pic above.) He also went on to confirm a Fall 2016 release date and a 2017 Tour kicking off around February. However he said “not to hold him to it.” The New Jersey native stated: “I don’t want to read on the Internet.” He said in February: “I think it just depends on everybody’s health and well-being at that time.”
