Dokken Post Christmas Video Online

DOKKEN's animated video for the band's holiday single, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", taken from the "Monster Ballads Xmas" compilation (Razor & Tie), can be viewed below (animation created by Serge Volsky).

According to CDJapan.co.jp, California hard rockers DOKKEN will release their new album, "Lightning Strikes Again", in Japan on February 6 via Nexus. The first pressing will contain an exclusive bonus track and sticker.

A rough-mix version of a brand new DOKKEN track, entitled "Oasis", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The song comes off "Lightning Strikes Again", which will be released in March/April 2008 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).

"It will be a very heavy progressive record," Dokken told Deb Rao of KNAC.COM earlier in the year. "Just some cool songs, some dark songs, and some medium tempo. Some of the best work that I have done in years. I am not looking for any kind of sound. I am just writing whatever spiritual inspiration comes to me. You could say the sound is very heavy, like 'Kiss of Death'."

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.
