At the beginning of the year, AFI frontman Davey Havok revealed he had joined forces with members of No Doubt to form a new “supergroup.” Until recently, anything concerning the still-unnamed group had been kept quiet with the exception of having a full record full of songs ready to be released. Last time Havok spoke about the project, he had said that they were in the process of finding a record label to release the album. On Thursday (Nov. 17), those following the story were finally given at least one answer to the many question that were raised about the band in early 2016.
The new group which will feature Havok as well as No Doubt members Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal, and Adrian Young will officially go by Dreamcar. While the unveiling of the group’s name is a step in the right direction, it looks like they still have not found a record label to release the new material. The supergroup’s formation was announced back in February of 2016, but since then, everything has been quiet. The only other piece of information that has been given besides the name of the act and the members’ identities is that they are aiming for a 2017 release date.
While everything is quiet on the Dreamcar front, things for Havok and his main band, AFI are not. In late-October, the California-founded band confirmed the impending release of their tenth studio record, AFI (The Blood Album). The album, the follow-up to 213’s Burials, is set to be released on Jan. 20, 2017. In honor of the new album’s announcement, the band released two new tracks from the album; “Snow Cats” and “White Offerings.” Both track can be streamed here.
