November 2016 New Music Releases
For instance, Bon Jovi begin a new phase with This House Is Not for Sale – the group's first set of all-new songs since 2013's What About Now, and their initial project since the sudden departure of co-founder Richie Sambora. Rik Emmett is joined on the upcoming RES9 by his former Triumph bandmates for the first time since 1987, and Lynyrd Skynyrd co-founder Gary Rossington bounces back from a health scare with a new solo album.
The Band begin releasing a series of 40th anniversary editions of The Last Waltz, around the same time The 1966 Live Recordings takes a very deep dive into a controversial tour with their former boss Bob Dylan. Motley Crue commemorate the conclusion of their lengthy Final Tour with a concert film, while ex-Crue member Nikki Sixx's new band Sixx:A.M. releases a companion piece to Prayers for the Damned Vol. 1, which arrived back in April.
Ritchie Blackmore will release a live set culled from shows played with a restructured Rainbow earlier this year, while Blackmore's former Deep Purple bandmate Glenn Hughes is set to unleash "possibly the heaviest record I've ever made."
