No Doubt cancel tour plans to record new album

The band are already at work on the follow-up to 2012's 'Push And Shove'

No Doubt have postponed their forthcoming tour plans in order to get to work on the follow-up to last year’s comeback album, ‘Push And Shove’.

The Los Angeles based band took to Facebook to break the news to fans. The band wrote:

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.

They continued: “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.”


Last November No Doubt‘s single ‘Looking Hot’ sold just 680 copies in its first week of release.

The second single to be taken from the band’s comeback album ‘Push And Shove’, reached Number 397 on the chart. The ‘Push And Shove’ album itself peaked at Number 16 in the Official UK Albums chart, while comeback single ‘Settle Down’ reached just Number 85.

‘Push And Shove’ is the band’s sixth studio album and it followed 2001’s ‘Rock Steady’.
