Alternative rock's latest odd coupling is shopping a completed album.
AFI frontman Davey Havok has joined forces with No Doubt's Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young to form an as-yet-unnamed band, reps for the group confirmed to Billboard. The quartet, which sources say is managed by Pat Magnarella (Green Day), already has completed an album and is seeking a label deal.
The union recalls alternative supergroup Audioslave (which united Soundgarden's Chris Cornell and the musicians of Rage Against the Machine). Similarly, the new band brings with it a formidable sales history -- No Doubt has sold 16.3 million albums in the United States since 1992 and AFI 4.1 million since 1995, according to Nielsen Music -- although the former group's firepower without singer Gwen Stefani is an open question.
