No Doubt Set September 25th Release Date for New Album
It’s been over a decade since the last No Doubt record, but the band has now announced that a new album will be released on September 25. No title has yet been released.
The band made the announcement in a video on Friday, and the group’s official website contains a letter written from the members of the band.
“We are incredibly excited to share the new music with you,” the letter says. “Ear candy coming your way!”
The announcement also says that the website will be updated as the album release gets closer with new pictures and videos. It states that the album will be a part of the band’s 25th birthday.
“Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years,” said the statement. “We’re really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do. We’ll be posting updates between now and September as we shoot the video and start rehearsing to perform the new songs live for all of you… Se you soon…”
No tour dates have yet been released. No Doubt originally formed in California in 1986, and released a self-titled debut in 1992. They met widespread acclaim with their second album, Tragic Kingdom, which was released in 1995 and included slew of hits including “Don’t Speak,” “Just a Girl” and “Spiderwebs.” The album gained popularity after it was released and eventually got to the number one spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It stayed there for eight weeks and was certified diamond for selling 10 million copies in the U.S. before the decade was done.
The band’s most recent record, Rock Steady, was released in 2001. The band was on hiatus from 2004-2008, a time in which lead singer Gwen Stefani released two solo albums. The group reportedly began recording in 2008, but sessions were cut short when Stefani became pregnant with her second child.
