Finally, the search for the new lead guitarist is over as Bon Jovi officially names Matt O'Ree as their new guitarist!

According to the website, Noise 11, Matt O'Ree will replace touring member Bobby Bandiera. Phil X will remain with the band as both he and O'Ree will do the Bon Jovi new album 2016. Phil X was the guitarist of the recently released album of Bon Jovi, "Burning Bridges," which is also a parting shot against their former label, 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."

Here is the list of tracks included in the Bon Jovi new album, "Burning Bridges" via Ultimate Classic Rock

"We Don't Run"

"Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning"

"Mona Lisa"


"Who Says You Can't Go Home" (feat. Keith Urban)

"This Ain't Love"

"State of Our Union"


"Times Like These"

"Beautiful Day"

"Start Your Own Revolution"

"This Is Our House"

"I'm Giving Me to You"

"I'm On My Way"

"Second Chances"

"The Ghost of a Good Thing"

Also, here's a brief introduction to O'Ree 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."

Meanwhile, keyboardist David Bryan confirmed that they will tour next year once the album is out.

"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 "We're back in the studio and we'll have an album out next year. That's our cycle."
