No Doubt have announced that they have returned to the studio. In an announcement posted on their website, the band said they are putting their tour plans on hold, as they’ve become unexpectedly inspired to write a new album. This is much quicker than the break between their last two albums, which lasted 11 years.
You can view the whole statement here.
No Doubt released their last album Push and Shove, last year on Interscope Records.
“Hi Everyone, Greetings from the studio in Los Angeles…Yes, that’s right, the studio!
While we were traveling the world last year promoting Push And Shove, Gwen mentioned she was inspired to write new music. In December, around the time of our hometown shows, we discussed the idea of starting 2013 by getting back into the studio together. We did so in January and the new music started flowing with unexpected ease. After spending three years recording the last album, this new pace feels incredibly exciting.
We have decided to follow our muse for the time being and focus on this new music that we don’t want to stop. So, we will be postponing our tour plans briefly while we endeavor to create something special and inspired. Our goal as a band is to share this new music with you as quickly as possible – both recorded and live on tour.
As always, thank you all for your kind words, incredible support and patience. We promise to keep you updated with photos and videos from the studio, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to get the latest updates. We will see you soon!”
