Dokken To Enter The Studio To Record New Album Through Frontiers Records

Heavy metal veterans Dokken has announced that they will soon be entering the studio to record a brand new album, which will be released sometime next year through Frontiers Records. This will be the bands first album since 2008s, "Lightning Strikes Again." The group is hoping to finish recording the album by the end of February before hitting the road in June.

"So far we have written 10 songs in only 8 weeks", says singer Don Dokken. "Usually we spend a year or more on our music. I can't explain why this time it came so fast, it just happened. So far the music is very uptempo and heavy, of course we know our fans like the classic Dokken sound and this is where our new music is headed. It’s been a band of brothers doing what we love : 'music'.

"In a perfect world we would like to release the new album before the summer and then play the festivals in Europe. Then hopefully we can jump on a package tour in the US, says Don Dokken. "We want to give everyone a great CD that will keep all music fans Rokkin’ during these troubled times!"

Probably not Lynch but would be cool if it was. Even though they were glam I think they had some of the best music of that genre.
