No Doubt Move on from Gwen with AFI’s Davey Havok

By Amanda Wicks for Radio.com

The remaining three members of No Doubt—Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young—are teaming up with AFI frontman Davey Havok to form a new alternative rock group.

While the band doesn’t yet have a name, sources told Billboard that they’re ahead of the curve in many respects. Not only do they already have a manager (Green Day’s Pat Magnarella), but they’ve also completed a full album and are in the process of shopping around for a label.

No Doubt last toured with lead singer Gwen Stefani in 2015, but following those dates Stefani separated herself from the group by finding new management and focusing on her solo career.

In November 2015, Stefani admitted doing the band’s 2012 reunion album Push and Shove ended up being much more difficult than she anticipated, and it was only when she joined The Voice that she regained her artistic confidence. Speaking about writing Push and Shove, she said, “It was a lot of not being sure, not being confident, not knowing what sounds good, not being… honest.”

That doesn’t mean No Doubt in its original formation is done for good, but Dumont, Kamal and Young clearly aren’t waiting on the sidelines for another reunion tour.

No word yet on when this new group will release their album (or when we’ll get a band name for that matter), but it will be curious to see how they distinguish themselves from their No Doubt sound and create a new path with Havok.
