Earlier this week, Gwen Stefani released her new solo album's track list and then dropped a new song, "Make Me Like You," Thursday night.

Clearly the superstar mother of three is doing very well these days. But as she moves on and relaunches her solo go her former band mates.

According to, the other members of No Doubt—Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont, and Adrian Young—have recruited Davey Havok, frontman of hard-rock band AFI, to take Stefani's place as lead vocalist while she is busy with her other projects.

Fun fact about the new frontman: Havok is a vegan, and won peta2's annual World's Sexiest Vegetarian contest in 2007.

Though Gwen is clearly irreplaceable, the music this newly-formed alliance puts out is expected to be quite interesting, as No Doubt was known for their unique alt-rock, ska-punk style—a striking contrast to AFI's more emo sound.

The new quartet has already recorded an album and is in the process of seeking a label deal, Billboard reports. There was no word as to what the supergroup will call itself if they choose to abandon the No Doubt moniker.

The Orange County-based band, with Gwen as an energetic, glamorous frontwoman, has sold 33 million albums worldwide and won two Grammys. Back in 2002 the mayor presented them with the key to the city of Anaheim, Calif., their formative stomping grounds.

No doubt, it's safe to say that Havok has big shoes to fill.
