Aftermath of the Lowdown is the third solo studio album by Richie Sambora which was released on September 18, 2012 as digital download and on September 25, 2012 as physical CD (digipack format). In the United Kingdom the album was released on September 17. For the first time in his 30-year career, Sambora signed with an independent label, Dangerbird. To promote the album, Sambora and his band appeared as the house band on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson for the first week in December 2012. The album charted at #10 on the "Top Hard Rock Albums", #34 on the Top Independent Albums, #149 on The Billboard 200 and #35 on the UK Albums Chart. The track "Every Road Leads Home to You" was released as a single for the album and features a music video. The song is also featured as one of the bonus tracks on Bon Jovi's 2013 album What About Now. A special edition single, "I'll Always Walk Beside You'" featuring Alicia Keys was released as the second single of the album. All the profits from the sale of the special edition single goes to the ongoing recovery efforts of The Red Cross for the devastation from Hurricane Sandy. The track "Sugar Daddy" was released as a promo single and a music video was made for the song "Taking a Chance on the Wind". A song named "Forgiveness Street" (5:48) was thought to be planned as a bonus track on the Japan CD, but was later dropped.
