The media is already buzzing over No Doubt’s uber-exciting announcement that the new album will be out on September 25!! We are totally ecstatic and cannot wait for even more media coverage of the band in the coming months!
No Doubt will return with a new album this fall, the band announced in a video on Friday.
The album, due Sept. 25, will be the group’s first since 2001’s “Rock Steady.” The joking announcement, full of studio applause and sound effects, didn’t share a title for the new release.
“Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years,” the band wrote on its official website. “We’re really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do.”
In the coming months, the long-absent group promised to post “plenty of photos and webisodes as we go.” No Doubt hasn’t been entirely off the radar in the last decade-plus: frontwoman Gwen Stefani released a pair of notable solo albums and the group returned to touring in 2009.
No Doubt‘s long-delayed, heavily anticipated follow-up to 2001′s Rock Steady finally has a release date — September 25, 2012. The band put together a video to announce the big news, and barely got through the minute-long clip without cracking themselves up. We missed these guys!
“We’ll be posting a lot of updates between now and September as we shoot the video and start rehearsing to perform the new songs live for all of you,” the band wrote on their official site. “We’ll send plenty of photos and webisodes as we go so you’re there with us.” The album, their first in nearly 11 years, was initially expected to drop in 2011, but was pushed back due to the band wanting to take their time. “This collection of songs means everything to us and our only priority right now is to make sure that it’s the best album we can possibly make,” Gwen Stefani & Co. said last September.
The SoCal band has been working on the album since 2010, and have recorded a collaboration with Major Lazer‘s Diplo and Switch. Tracks on the LP include “One More Summer”, described as a “beat-driven electro-pop track with a soaring chorus”, and “Dreaming The Same Dream”, which Stefani referred to as “a prom song”. September is a little late for a prom song, but at this point, it’s better late than never.
Consequence of Sound:
No Doubt will release their long-in-the-works reunion album on September 25th. As Antiquiet points out, the band revealed the release date in a YouTube video, which you can watch below.
The band and producer Mark “Spike” Stent have been recording the as-yet-untitled LP since May 2010. Along the way, they collaborated with Major Lazer’s Diplo and Switch.
Mark your calendars, No Doubt fans. The SoCal rockers are back.
More than a year after postponing their new album, the band’s as-yet-untitled release is finally slated to hit shelves. The official release date: September 25, 2012.
The bleach-blonde quartet made the announcement in a video posted to their official YouTube page on Friday, in which frontwoman Gwen Stefani accidentally botched the news.
“Our record is coming out on September 26th,” she declared, prompting laughs from her bandmates. With a little help from bassist Tony Kanal, the group officially revealed the release as September 25th.
“We are incredibly excited to share the new music with you,” the band posted on their website. “Ear candy coming your way!” No Doubt also promised a fully revamped site and brand new artwork to coincide with the release.
“Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years. We’re really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do,” the statement continued. “We’ll be posting a lot of updates between now and September as we shoot the video and start rehearsing to perform the new songs live for all of you. We’ll send plenty of photos and webisodes as we go so you’re there with us. See you soon…”
The new album will be No Doubt’s first since 2001’s Rock Steady. Since then, Stefani has released two notable solo efforts and the group reunited for a slew of live performances in 2009.
2012 has now unofficially been dubbed the year of highly-anticipated reunions. Garbage, who are playing KROQ’s Weenie Roast y Fiesta tomorrow, are putting out their fifth album after a seven-year hiatus; Anaheim, California’s No Doubt just announced the release date of what will be their sixth album.
Although lead singer Gwen Stefani became a pop icon with her solo music, the 1986-formed four-piece hasn’t put out a new record since 2001′s Rock Steady.
Through social media updates on Twitter and Facebook, the band has teased their fans with shots of them working in the studio; Stefani and Tony Kanal even performed on American Idol.
But there was no official word on when their album–eleven years in the making–would reach the ears of their diehard fans. Until today.
In a press release via their website, No Doubt announced that their still untitled album will be out on September 25th, the band said:
“Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years. We’re really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do. We’ll be posting a lot of updates between now and September as we shoot the video and start rehearsing to perform the new songs live for all of you.”
“We’ll send plenty of photos and webisodes as we go so you’re there with us. See you soon… September 25th, 2012!”
After multiple delays, No Doubt has announced the release date of their highly anticipated sixth studio album.
The SoCal rockers dropped the news in a video posted on their YouTube page on Friday.
“Our record is coming out on September 26th,” No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani announced in the video (surrounded by bandmates Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont), before bursting into laughter as the boys pointed out she got the date wrong.
“I mean… September 25!” Gwen quickly corrected herself.
“We hope you like the new video and the big news — the new album will be out on September 25. We are incredibly excited to share the new music with you. Ear candy coming your way!” the band added in a message posted on their website. “Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years. We’re really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do.”
The new record marks No Doubt’s first album since 2001’s “Rock Steady.”
No Doubt has finally set a date for the release of their long-awaited new album. “Ear candy coming your way!” the band wrote in a message on their website announcing that the record will be coming out on September 25th.
This will be the sixth studio album for the band, and their first release since Rock Steady in 2001. No Doubt had started working on the recordings in 2008, when Stefani was pregnant with her second child, and the band set out on tour in 2009.
“A lot of stuff happened during that time period,” singer Gwen Stafani told Rolling Stone last June. “Marriages, babies and, for me, two records and two clothing lines. So if you really worked out the math, you’d be like, ‘Wow, you guys are going fast.'”
