Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach joined DOKKEN on stage on June 14 at the Kavarna Rock festival in Kavarna, Bulgaria to perform the classic DOKKEN song “Alone Again”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
DOKKEN‘s new album, “Broken Bones”, is scheduled for release in the fall via Frontiers Records. The drums for the CD were laid down at MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee‘s The Atrium studio in Calabasas, California.
DOKKEN frontman Don Dokken stated in a recent interview about the new album title, “[It] is a metaphor that we all have broken bones, be it from an accident, failed relationship, or a broken heart. Everybody gets wounded as we go through life, but, as they say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
Dokken previously described the band’s new material as “very uptempo and heavy.” He added, “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.'”
Regarding the new songs’ lyrical approach, Dokken said, “I write what comes from the heart, I don’t believe in writing music trying to repeat what you’ve already done. I understand what the fans want but as an artist I see no point in painting the same picture over and over.”
DOKKEN‘s current lineup consists of Don Dokken on lead vocals, Jon Levin on guitar, Sean McNabb on bass and Mick Brown on drums.
