Dokken formed in Los Angeles during the "big hair band" days of the early '80s and scored a number of Billboard and MTV hits. Since then, Dokken has consistently kept the flag flying for traditional, L.A. style melodic hard rock. Currently the band's lineup consists of vocalist and band leader Don Dokken, drummer "Wild" Mick Brown, guitarist Jon Levin and new bassist Sean McNabb (ex-Great White).
Dokken plans to release a new studio album in the summer of 2012. The album will be released worldwide on Frontiers Records, which announced the signing of Dokken on November 22, 2011. Don Dokken announced the name of the new album will be "Broken Bones" and said the release date should be sometime in June 2012.
