- Story Text: The four members of new rock supergroup Dreamcar have been discussing how the band came about and a No Doubt reunion.
The band came together in the summer of 2014 when No Doubt's Tony Kanal [bass], Tom Dumont [guitar], and Adrian Young [drums] approached former AFI frontman, Davey Havok, to collaborate. They secretly started writing and demoing music together in a rehearsal space in downtown Los Angeles and, three years later, Dreamcar was revealed.
Their 80s-infused music, described as "a mixture of shimmering guitar tones, percussive slap bass, bombastic drums and neon-lit dance floor dreaminess," caught the attention of Columbia Records who are releasing the band's self-titled debut album on May 12, the morning after they perform their first single, Kill For Candy, on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
