Dokken Guitarist "New Album Is Slammin'"

DOKKEN will perform on July 14 at one of the most talked-about music festivals this summer, Rocklahoma. The band is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on its upcoming release, "Lightning Strikes Again".

Commented DOKKEN guitarist Jon Levin: "We will be performing all of the hits at Rocklahoma on July 14th and perhaps a surprise or two as well. We are all very excited about the event and looking forward to seeing all the fans. Absolutely.

"I notice quite a few young fans in the audience now. Looks like its all coming around again.

"The record is coming along well and we are still aiming for September as a release. I think the fans will be happy with the record. It rocks! It 100% recaptures the DOKKEN sound and more.

"We are beginning the tour in Europe in September and I am looking forward to it. We are doing 25 shows there. After Europe, we will be touring the U.S. in the fall. Time to get excited...

"'Lightning Strikes Again' is slammin'."

"Lightning Strikes Again" will be released via Rhino Records in the U.S. and Frontiers Records in Europe. The follow-up to 2004's "Hell to Pay" will feature the lineup of Don Dokken (vocals), Jon Levin (guitar, ex-WARLOCK), Barry Sparks (bass, TED NUGENT, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, MSG) and Mick Brown (drums).

Rhino Records in March revisited DOKKEN's early days with a pair of releases packed with previously unissued material. The first release, a CD entitled "From Conception: Live 1981", captures DOKKEN in an early, previously unseen concert recorded before the band signed with Elektra. The second release is the DVD debut of the band's first home video, the platinum-certified "Unchain the Night", which is expanded with unreleased videos and new extended interviews with the band.
