The classic lineup of Dokken — vocalist Don Dokken, guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson and drummer “Wild” Mick Brown — filmed a video in Los Angeles on Tuesday (December 19) for a new song called It’s Just Another Day, reports

The tune will be featured on the band’s forthcoming CD/DVD package, and marks the the first new song by the classic lineup since the 1997 Shadowlife album.

Pilson wrote on social media that It’s Just Another Day “came out amazing,” adding that “it’s amazing how much it sounds like vintage DOKKEN.”

Dokken’s classic lineup played its only U.S. show in September 2016 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota before embarking on a six-show Japanese run dubbed Unleashed In The East.

The upcoming concert DVD will reportedly feature footage from two of the Japanese shows — including Tokyo — as well as the band’s Sioux Falls gig. The band also recorded two acoustic remakes of a couple of the old Dokken songs, which also “came out really amazing,” according to Pilson.

The 2016 Japanese tour featuring Pilson, Dokken, Lynch and Brown marked the first time in 21 years DOKKEN’s classic lineup had hit the road.

    ….and then, citing creative differences between Don and George, the original lineup of the band broke up again for the 29th time.

    Hopefully the classic lineup video is more inspiring that Don’s uninspired classic lineup live shows.

    Wicked Sensation is one of my all time favorite albums. Great record.

    Totally agree that WICKED SENSATION from Lynch Mob is a KILLER record, Dana. George Lynch has to be one of the hardest working guitar players out there, with all of the releases he is involved in. As far as this song from the original Dokken lineup, it’s okay. Nothing spectacular. My opinion is that these guys shouldn’t try to force a reunion. It’s obvious that they don’t really like working together anymore (if they ever did!). These reunions only really work when all of the parties involved want to work together again. If it’s done just to please the fans, or for the money, you can always tell.

    The original 4 has some friction for sure, but also a songwriting chemistry that just works.
