Official Press Release
|New Studio Album "BOUNCE" Set To Hit the Root Internationally on September 23rd 2002
BON JOVI's glorious new studio album 'Bounce' is now confirmed for international launch on September 23rd - 12 signature compositions, ballads & rockers alike, tapping into the classic narrative style at the heart of some of the biggest Bon Jovi hits... The album will come out on October 8 in the US.
Recorded by the US outfit in their home state of New Jersey, the hotly- anticipated 'Bounce' - released via Island - sees Jon Bon Jovi & guitarist Richie Sambora pooling production duties with Luke Ebbin, the man first brought into the fold for previous album 'Crush' (2000) - a double-platinum Stateside smash and an eight-million seller worldwide.
In lead single 'It's My Life', 'Crush' delivered a song that cut straight to the core of the band's appeal, and new album numbers such as 'Joey', 'Misunderstood' & lead track/video 'Everyday' are even clearer evidence of the four - Bon Jovi, Sambora, David Bryan & Tico Torres - showing just how powerful rock'n'roll can be when it's served up straight from the source, free from the confines of fashion & fad...
With mix-maestro Bob Clearmountain adding the final studio magic, 'Bounce' - the group's eighth studio release - is as cool a slice of the BJ experience as it's possible to get beyond the walls of an arena - the perfect showcase for a record-making, record-breaking, Grammy-nominated act who, 100 million albums and more than 2,000 shows down the line, continue to stir up the senses in a potent way.
2001's 'One Wild Night' - BJ's live debut and a two million-seller - showed that some guys do indeed do it better with the lights off, and later this year the 'international road mode' button is due to be pressed once again. To date, 31 million people in 47 different countries have witnessed Bon Jovi live and in the flesh; the next few months will see those incredible figures seriously starting to grow...
