VIDEO: INTERVIEW – DREAMCAR Talk Formation, Influences, Debut Album

DREAMCAR may be comprised of familiar faces but their sound is fresh and different than the material they may have been associated with. Featuring members of No Doubt – Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont – and dynamic frontman for AFI, Blaqk Audio and XTRMST, Davey Havok, Dreamcar will release their self-titled debut on May 12, 2017. The union of Kanal, Dumont, Young, and Havok can be traced to 2012 when Blaqk Audio supported No Doubt and Havok was the first and only artist considered by the three No Doubt members to collaborate with. As various tracks have been released leading up to the album release, the band completed a sold-out West Coast tour that included performances at both weekends of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
