Los Angeles, CA – May 12, 2017 – DREAMCAR today released their highly anticipated self-titled debut album on Columbia Records. Listen to the album now HERE. DREAMCAR features members of Southern California’s seminal pop/rock band No Doubt – Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont – and dynamic frontman for AFI, Blaqk Audio and XTRMST, Davey Havok.
DREAMCAR’s rollocking debut single “Kill For Candy” was world-premiered on the Kevin & Bean show on KROQ in Los Angeles in March. Watch the track’s music video HERE. Shot using an innovative wearable camera, the POV style clip allows the viewer to experience a day in the life of DREAMCAR, through the eyes of the band’s four members.
Last month, DREAMCAR wrapped a sold-out West Coast tour that included performances at both weekends of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The band also made its network television debut performing “Kill For Candy” and “All of the Dead Girls” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“With its propulsive groove, echoing guitar and soaring chorus, the song offers a tasty preview of DREAMCAR’s self-titled 12-song debut album.”Rolling Stone
“DREAMCAR is neither No Doubt or AFI, but an obvious passion project that these seasoned players are now equally excited and proud to share with the masses.”OC Register
“If you are lucky enough to have a ticket for this first jaunt of theirs, save your ticket stub, it will be one of those shows you will brag about later and you might need proof to show that you were there.”
New Noise Magazine
“They arrived at Coachella a shiny and well-oiled machine” Consequence of Sound
There’s something romantic about a band’s early days. In the summer of 2014, No Doubt’s Tony Kanal [bass], Tom Dumont [guitar], and Adrian Young [drums] and singer Davey Havok [AFI, Blakq Audio] began writing and demoing music together. Without telling a soul outside of their significant others, the four musicians clandestinely moved into a cramped downtown Los Angeles rehearsal spot and revved up what would become DREAMCAR. The union of Kanal, Dumont, Young, and Havok pre-dates those magical jam sessions. Paths crossed in the music industry as they do, but Young can recall standing on the side of the stage and watching Havok with rapt attention as Blaqk Audio supported No Doubt in 2012. The seeds became planted then.
Rife with shimmering guitar tones, percussive slap bass, bombastic drums, and a neon-lit dance floor dreaminess, DREAMCAR gleefully nods to the decade of Boy George and Back to the Future through a kaleidoscope of wisdom earned from three decades creating and connecting with fans worldwide. Signing to Columbia Records, the boys recorded their 2017 self-titled debut with producer Tim Pagnotta in a North Hollywood studio. The Dream begins now.
