Bon Jovi To Release Ninth Album "Lost Highway" In June

Bon Jovi will soon take a trip down the "Lost Highway." The band are set to release their ninth album, a follow up to 2005's "Have A Nice Day," on June 19.

One of the songs, the title track to the record, can already be heard on the movie soundtrack to "Wild Hogs."

The album is being produced by Dan Huff who has collaborated with Keith Urban and Rascal Flatts in the past.

Prior to its release date, the band will make several television appearances, including the CMT Awards on April 16 and "American Idol" on May 2.

Their first single, "(You Want To) Make A Memory," will hit radio stations on Tuesday, March 20.

Bon Jovi are also set to be one of the performers at this year's much anticipated Live Earth concert event on July 7. Other artists joining the band in spreading awareness to global warming include Spanish rock sensation Mana and rapper Pharrell.

In 2006, lead singer Jon Bon Jovi became the first ambassador to Habitat for Humanity.

Over the years, the band have won several VH1 and MTV Music awards. They were most recently awarded with a 2007 Grammy award for "Who Says You Can't Go Home" - Best Country Collaboration.
