Dreamcar consists of the members of No Doubt minus Gwen Stefani with Davey Havok of AFI on vocals.

The No Doubt guys wanted to continue writing music in Gwen's absence and thought of Havok. They invited him out to dinner, gave him four tracks and within 48 hours, he handed them back with the vocals and harmonies. He was hired.

The music is so damn catchy, even if it took me a couple listens to fully hook me. Actually, it took the Jimmy Kimmel performance to really sell me. I'm a huge AFI fan but only really heard the No Doubt songs from radio play.

Lovely stuff. Figured some folks may be interested in this and searching warranted no results. Kill me for candy if old.

Davey Havok looks like one of the Mael brothers from Sparks.

I like this a lot more than I enjoyed any of either individual bands outputs.

I listened to a track the other day, and I was pretty disappointed with it. I'll have to give it another shot later.

I found out about these guys a little while ago, and I like their output. I really dig the 80s-esque soundscape they're playing with. (Personally, though, I thought No Doubt was just fine as a ska band. I wish they would have just found a new lead and just gone with it.)

Lol man it's crazy to see how much Davey's look has changed since Black Sails. Love that Ed Wood mustache he's got going on

I'm really digging this. Kill for Candy is kind of a grower but the other 2 are catchy as hell. I've always been a big No Doubt fan

It was the opposite for me. I think the mistake was reading lyrics for a first listen.

This is not a dig on the lyrics. It's just hard to get a feel for the song when I'm reading along for the first time.

Just downloaded all of Blaqk Audio's albums on Spotify to prepare for this.

Ok, glad the guys are making music together, but this isn't for me. Hope they do well.

Wow, thanks for this information. The latest AFI album blew me away and getting more Davey is always great, no complaints with the combination with No Doubt. Will review this on Spotify shortly but thanks for the Youtube links to begin with.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I skimmed the topic and I thought this was a new Marvel book about these two:
