No Doubt and AFI’s Singer are Now DREAMCAR, Hear Their New Song

For the moment, the future of No Doubt seems very much uncertain. Gwen Stefani rekindled her solo career last year with This Is What the Truth Feels Like, her first album since 2006. In response, the rest of No Doubt — guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young — decided to move on without their lead singer. They needed somebody behind the mic, though, so they recruited AFI frontman Davey Havok for a new supergroup, DREAMCAR. Now, the band has an album on the way, and they just shared a music video for their song, “Kill For Candy” ( via Consequence of Sound).

The video is shot from a POV perspective, switching back and forth between the vantage points of various band members as they run through the song in an artistically lit practice space. As for the song, even though it comes from two bands who were at their most relevant a decade or more ago, it’s a lot of fun. There are shades of The Cure here, and it’s a perfectly upbeat jam for shaking off the winter blues.

If you’re into it, the good news is that the group also announced some tour dates, including a couple stops at Coachella, so check those out below. Listen to the song above, and hit up us on Twitter to let us know what you think of it! Also give us a shout if you’re proud of us for not saying that No Doubt’s future is in “doubt!”
