DREAMCAR today shared “Kill For Candy”, the rollicking lead single off their forthcoming debut album DREAMCAR, due out May 12, 2017 via Columbia Records and produced by Tim Pagnotta. The song was world-premiered on the Kevin & Bean show on KROQ in Los Angeles at 7:15am PST this morning, and is now available to stream below. 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.
“Kill For Candy” instantly enchants with its upbeat energy and sweet, saccharine chant punctuated by a twisting and turning guitar and driving rhythms. “There’s an honesty in all of my lyrics,” Havok states. “This one speaks to a perhaps dangerous and unhealthy desire for the sweet.”
“We’ve had nothing but a great time making this album,” says Tony Kanal. ” I’m so glad our first single is finally out. We can’t wait to play live for everyone.”
DREAMCAR today also announced a selection of live dates around their appearances at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Tickets for the band’s headlining shows are available now HERE. A complete list of upcoming live dates can be found below.
Next month DREAMCAR will make their network television debut performing “Kill For Candy” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Tune into ABC on Tuesday, April 18th at 11:35/10:35pm C to catch the performance.
