success came appreciation. Grammy Awards bestowed them with Best New Artist and Best Rock Album at the 1997 ceremony. The album spawned half of the album as singles and received eight-time platinum. With worldwide sales of sixteen millions, it was one of the best-selling albums in history. The band became the center of dispute between Trauma and Interscope, the former of which accused the latter of breaching contract once the band began tasting success.
The follow-up to "Tragic Kingdom" was released in 2000 under the title "Return of Saturn". Darker in sound, the album was critically acclaimed, but was not as commercially successful as "Tragic Kingdom". The lead single "Ex-Girlfriend" did not chart on Billboard Hot 100 and their tour was cut short due to the lack of sale.
No Doubt rose from the fall with another album in 2001 called "Rock Steady". It proved to be a life-saver for the band as "Hey Baby", "Underneath It All" and "Hella Good" went through commercial success. Two years later No Doubt released a compilation album that boasted their best singles. The band toured extensively throughout 2004 before taking a hiatus.
Gwen continued by herself as a solo artist, releasing two successful albums in 2004 and 2006. Tom also joined another band for a side project while the other members were busy with their own projects. While Gwen was occupied with the promotion of her second solo album, No Doubt regrouped and kick-started the work of a new album without her. As a favor for their fans, they toured in summer 2009 although they did not have new material to showcase.
"Push and Shove" was eventually finished in 2012 with "Settle Down" as the first single.
