(Los Angeles, CA – August 3, 2016) After years of intense speculation and recent rumors, it can now be confirmed that DOKKEN will indeed reform its classic lineup for 6 shows ONLY! Don Dokken, George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and “Wild” Mick Brown will return to the stage together, in Japan – for the first time in 21 years. Dubbed “Unleashed in the East,” leader Don Dokken explains why now. “I am very excited to come back to Japan and play with the members of Dokken that I spent so much time with. Being that its only 6 shows, we are going to make it as spectacular as possible”

After launching on October 5 in Osaka, Japan, the quartet will then head to Fukuoka, Tokyo (for the Loud Park Festival) before continuing on to Hiroshima, Aichi and finally, back to Tokyo for the final show on October 12th. Dokken’s Tooth and Nail, released in 1984, contained several hit songs including “Alone Again”, “Just Got Lucky” and “Into the Fire” and sold over three million copies worldwide and the band continued releasing many more records with the same success.

Tickets for this once in a lifetime event, as well as VIP package experiences, will be on sale beginning August 27th. This will be the one and only opportunity for fans to see the original line-up play their iconic hits.

LET’S GET ROKKEN WITH DOKKEN – “BROKEN BONES” OUT IN SEPTEMBER VIA FRONTIERS RECORDS

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 29, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Frontiers Records is proud to announce the return of melodic hard rockers, Dokken; the band’s 11th studio album, BROKEN BONES, has been confirmed for release on September 21st in Europe and September 25th in North America.

The album will be released in two configurations: standard CD and limited edition CD in digipak with a bonus DVD, which features a comprehensive “Making Of The Album” documentary.

BROKEN BONES is produced by Dokken frontman and namesake, Don Dokken, and is mixed by Bob St. John (Extreme, Duran Duran, Collective Soul) and Wyn Davis (Black Sabbath, Dio, Whitesnake) and mastered by famed engineer Maor Appelbaum (Halford, Yngwie Malmsteen, Sepultura). The new set features a return to the band’s signature sound of catchy melodies, hot riffs and monster production.

Don Dokken commented, “We’ve never had a #1 hit; we’ve just kept touring winning fans over one by one.”  The first single from the album will be “Empire”; click here to check out a sample of the song.  Please see below for the track listing for BROKEN BONES.

Dokken exploded out of the hotbed that was the hard rock and Heavy Metal scene in Los Angeles in the early ‘80s. Such classic albums as TOOTH AND NAIL, UNDER LOCK AND KEY and BACK FOR THE ATTACK were all certified multi-platinum, with songs like “Alone Again,” “Just Got Lucky,” “Into the Fire,” “It’s Not Love” and “Dream Warriors” still being regarded as amongst the genre’s finest. Dokken was one of the first groups to sell a million copies of their DVD “Unchain The Night.”

The group continues to tour the world extensively and has shared the stage with AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, Judas Priest, Van Halen, Kiss, Scorpions, Bon Jovi and many more. To date, the band has sold upwards of 10 million albums worldwide.  The group has been nominated for a Grammy as well as an American Music Award. In 1988, Don was awarded the keys to the city of Los Angeles by Mayor Tom Bradley declaring January 27th as “Dokken Day” for his charity contributions to the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital.

Dokken is: Don Dokken (vocals), Mick Brown (drums), Jon Levin (guitar) and Sean McNabb (bass).

BROKEN BONES Track Listing:

  1. Empire
  2. Broken Bones
  3. Best Of Me
  4. Blind
  5. Waterfall
  6. Victim Of The Crime
  7. Burning Tears
  8. Today
  9. For The Last Time
