It’s official! DREAMCAR, the new highly-anticipated super-group featuring Tom, Tony, Adrian and AFI’s Davey Havok, have finally made an announcement of their own and have debuted a logo and revealed more is on the way next year. The group’s name (pronounced ‘dream-car’) had yet to be announced or confirmed until now.
News of the boys grouping up with Davey was prematurely announced earlier this year and hints about what they had been working on have been shared sporadically during the last few months. Tom, Tony and Adrian confirmed the news in February and made it clear to fans that this new project is completely separate from No Doubt. Adrian had chatted with Billboard in May about DREAMCAR’s progress on their new material stating that the group had over 30 songs demoed and were heading into the studio later in June to record. The new group has collectively said that their new music sounds nothing like we’ve heard from either No Doubt or AFI. Tom had loosely described DREAMCAR’s sound as, “rock + pop + dance + synths + guitars + new wavey.”
Additional details (including promo and a release date) have yet to be shared and there is no indication (besides 2017) on when we can expect to hear new music from DREAMCAR. Adrian had shared earlier that the new group has aspirations of touring next year, which might come later in the year due to AFI releasing a new album of their own in January. The band’s official Twitter is following Columbia Records which may indicate which label they have signed with.

We’re extremely thrilled to have confirmation on DREAMCAR and we can’t wait to hear new music from the group! The boys are obviously just as equally as excited as all of us with Adrian stating earlier in June that DREAMCAR is “one of the most exciting things” that he’s been apart of.

We’ll be sure to stay on top of news as well on the site for the group and we hope to be able to report more sooner rather than later. We’re wishing DREAMCAR and our boys the best of luck and success on their new and exciting venture!
