Dokken to release ‘Return To The East Live (2016)’ via Frontiers Music Srl on April 20th
Following their successful Unleashed In The East mini-tour of Japan from October 5 to 12, 2016, Dokken‘s classic line-up of singer Don Dokken, guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson and drummer “Wild” Mick Brown will be releasing the much anticipated live CD/DVD Return To The East Live (2016) via Frontiers Music Srl on April 20, 2018.
The following message was posted on Frontiers Music Srl‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Dokken, featuring original members Don Dokken, George Lynch, Jeff Pilson, and Wild Mick Brown, will release a new live album & video, “Return To The East Live (2016)” on April 20, 2018! The set it taken from the band’s 2016 Loud Park appearance. It will include a brand new studio track recorded by the original members as well!
Formats: CD/DVD | Blu-Ray | Vinyl | CD/DVD + T-Shirt Deluxe Set”
The new song is anticipated to be titled “It’s Just Another Day.”
Dokken previously released their Beast From The East live album released in 1988 and reissued by Rock Candy Records in 2017 to which Sleaze Roxx stated in its review: “As with all of the Rock Candy Records reissues, they have new liners. This disc features commentary from bassist Jeff Pilson who openly admits that there was some ‘sweetening’ on Beast From The East, which isn’t surprising but having caught Dokken on the Back For The Attack tour, they sounded just like what I heard when I bought Beast in ‘88. I still enjoy “Walk Away” — the studio cut that closes the album. It sounds like a dysfunctional band that’s breaking up and they did, but maybe it was that dysfunction that sparked the chemistry that spawned their string of great studio records in the ’80s. This live record? Well, even with the studio trickery, it’s a ‘beast.’”
