Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora will release his third solo album, ‘Aftermath of the Lowdown’ on September 4, Brave Words reported today (June 24). The album will be on indie label Dangerbird Records, with whom he signed back in May.

“I’m really excited to work with Dangerbird,” he told Rolling Stone at the time. “Jeff [Castelaz, the label co-founder] is an unbelievable guy and I’ve been having great meetings with him.”

‘Aftermath of the Lowdown’ is produced by Luke Ebbin, who has worked with Sambora before on Bon Jovis’ ‘Crush’ and ‘Bounce’ albums. Despite having two other albums under his belt, Sambora is still trying to break free from the perception that he is “only” the lead guitarist in Bon Jovi.

“I think they don’t see me as a singer, and I was the lead singer in every band I was in before Bon Jovi,” he continued. “I hope I get to change people’s minds on this record. That’s what I’m gonna try to do.”

Sambora’s first solo album, ‘Stranger in This Town,’ was released in 1991 when Bon Jovi were one of the world’s biggest bands. It reached No. 36 on the Billboard charts and featured a cameo guitar solo by Eric Clapton on the single, ‘Mr. Bluesman.’ ‘Undiscovered Soul,’ his second record, came out in 1998.
