After four-year hiatus, No Doubt give fans clues on how they will be hitting the road again and entering the studio for recording sessions. Bringing out the news are the band's members themselves as they are posting a comical chat involving a talk on the possible touring and recording plans.
During the chat, keyboardist Tom Dumont said, "I have cabin fever. Maybe we should play some shows or something." Singer Gwen Stefani answered humorously, poking fun at her need for second hand to help her with her kids. "I think we should go out now. I don't think we should wait. Pack up the babies and get a bunch of nannies. So fun! Would be so inspiring to get out there and play all those songs again."
Furthermore, the talk on the possible roadshow also leads to another topic about writing new songs for their next album. "I think that if we go on tour, it will inspire us to write," Gwen shared to other members. "Yeah. Totally. I think playing some shows will make the studio time event better, playing songs, writing songs, kicking ass, ND 2009," bass guitarist Tony Kanal responded to Gwen's statement.
No Doubt have taken timeout since 2004. During the hiatus, Gwen Stefani released two solo studio albums "Love.Angel.Music.Baby." and "The Sweet Escape". Meanwhile, Tony Kanal spent his time producing a reggae LP for singer Elan Atias and doing a remix for Gwen and Gang of Four.
