DOKKEN 's classic lineup — Dokken , Lynch , bassist Jeff Pilson and drummer "Wild" Mick Brown — reunited for a short Japanese tour in the fall of 2016. The trek marked the first time in 21 years the four musicians had hit the road together.
A DOKKEN concert DVD focusing on the band's reunion tour, "Return To The East Live (2016)" , was made available in 2018.
Since completing the Japanese reunion dates, DOKKEN has continued to perform with the group's current lineup — including bassist Chris McCarvill and guitarist Jon Levin .
DOKKEN is currently working on material on a new studio album, tentatively due later in the year via Silver Lining Music , the label owned by Thomas Jensen , one of the founders of Germany's Wacken Open Air festival. It will mark the group's first disc since 2012's "Broken Bones" .
Over the past three years, Lynch — one-fourth of the classic DOKKEN lineup — has appeared on recordings by THE END MACHINE , KXM , ULTRAPHONIX and SWEET & LYNCH .
