Soon after Gwen Stefani announced her new solo LP This Is What the Truth Feels Like, her bandmates in No Doubt revealed they had teamed with AFI singer Davey Havok for a new, still-unnamed supergroup of their own. A day after Stefani’s Grammy performance/Target-sponsored music video, the singer stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she admitted that she had no prior knowledge about the No Doubt side project. “I actually first heard about it on the Internet,” Stefani said.
“They’re doing a side project … they wanna be in a punk band,” Stefani added of No Doubt’s Adrian Young, Tony Kanal and Tom Dumont. “It’s not No Doubt… it’s all the guys from No Doubt doing a new band, just to do new music.” Stefani also jokingly said that she needed to “text Tony and ask him” what would happen if she decided she wanted to front No Doubt again.
In addition to the interview and a mini-concert, Stefani also played “Blast From the Past,” a game where Kimmel dug into the deep recesses of Stefani’s life to find someone – in this case, Stefani’s seventh-grade bunkmate at Camp Fox – the singer once knew but probably forgot.
