DOKKEN are set to release their new studio album, “Heaven Comes Down”, in September
Over the weekend, DOKKEN shared a few photos from the video shoot for their new record’s apparent first single at the popular immersive arts venture Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which included the following message: “Hey everybody! We just finished a great music video shoot at Meow Wolf‘s House of Eternal Return with Director Chris Eyre for our new record coming out in September titled, Heaven Comes Down.
“If you haven’t heard about Meow Wolf, check them out! And check out my cool jewelry by Cody Sanderson!”
The new DOKKEN album’s title is apparently not to be confused with the band’s classic track “When Heaven Comes Down” which originally appeared on the Don Dokken fronted group’s 1984 LP “Tooth And Nail”.
In August 2020, the band delighted fans with the release of their album titled “The Lost Songs: 1978-1981” through Silver Lining Music. This collection showcases the early works of a young and ambitious Don Dokken, recorded during his journey through Southern California and Northern Germany. The album’s sleeve art was masterfully crafted by the renowned U.S. artist Tokyo Hiro, known for his work with iconic bands like MOTÖRHEAD and MOTLEY CRÜE.
A significant moment for DOKKEN occurred in October 2016 when the classic lineup, consisting of Dokken, guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson, and drummer “Wild” Mick Brown, reunited for a short Japanese tour. This marked the first time in 21 years that these four talented musicians performed together, creating a wave of excitement among their devoted fan base.
In 2018, fans were treated to a concert DVD capturing the magic of the group’s reunion tour titled “Return To The East Live (2016).” This DVD offered an immersive experience, allowing fans to relive the energy and nostalgia of the band’s triumphant return to the stage.
