No Doubt-AFI Supergroup Dreamcar Debut LP & Tour, Share Video
Tue, 04 Apr 2017 12:22:41
It has only been three months since AFI dropped their new album, but singer Davey Havok is not taking any breaks. He has teamed with 3/4ths of No Doubt — everyone except Gwen Stefani — to form a new supergroup called Dreamcar. And they aren't going to give you any time to let that sink in, as they have just unveiled a video for their upcoming album's first single. Watch "Kill For Candy" below.
"Kill For Candy" has a delightful 80s quality to it with obvious similarities to Flock of Seagulls' hit "I Ran". Bassist Tony Kanal saud of the sound, "We were teens in the Eighties, and that's the kind of music that we all grew up on. When you're in those really formative years, from, like, 13 to 19, what you listen to is so influential, and I think that's just part of our being now."
The band also announced that their debut self-titled record will be out May 12th via Columbia, and released a number of tour dates. We already knew that they would be performing at this year's Coachella festival, but now they have a complete list of 16 tour dates. Their concert series begins April 5th in Santa Ana, California and comes to a close on May 27th in Chicago, Illinois.
For fans of either band or just the 1980s as a decade, this is welcome news. Dreamcar is sure to be packing stages pretty quickly, so we advise trying to find tickets right away, we know we are.
