AFI Singer, No Doubt Members to Form Supergroup
Davey Havok-led album already completed as new group searches for name and record label
AFIÂ singer Davey Havok and No Doubt’s Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young are forming a supergroup, as BillboardÂ reports. The band doesn’t have a name or a record label yet, but it has already completed an album.
AFI released their latest album, Burials, in October 2013. The group played their first show in four yearsÂ a month before the album’s release.Â More recently, the bandÂ performed at Austin City Limits Fest in 2014, where it made Rolling Stone‘s “10 Best Things We Saw at Austin City Limits Fest 2014.” To celebrate its 25th year, AFIÂ announced on Facebook that it will be releasing a limited edition shirt and lithograph each month in 2016, based on an AFI song the band will pick.
No Doubt toured throughout 2015, including performances at Chicago’s Riot Fest, San Diego’s Kaaboo Festival and the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day Concert. But the latter half of the year, singer Gwen Stefani has made more headlines with her solo work as well as her personal life.
In August, Stefani and husband Gavin Rossdale divorcedÂ and her recent single “Used to Love You” seems influencedÂ by that event. She told Beats 1’s Zane LoweÂ that “I think I have enough [songs] for probably two albums.”
Stefani’s new album, This is What the Truth Feels Like, will be released March 18th, and the fate of No Doubt seems up in the air, as Young hinted to BillboardÂ last April. “We’re a little bit of limbo right now,” he said. “So, we’ll see where that takes us.”
