After a long wait, No Doubt finally reveal when they are going to release their new album. In a new video message, Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont announce that they will roll out the new CD in the United States on September 25.
In the coming months leading to the album release, the band will "debut a fresh new site and artwork." They also promise to give updates on the upcoming record through webisodes. "We are incredibly excited to share the new music with you. Ear candy coming your way!" they enthuse.
They add, "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."
It's been over 10 years since No Doubt released their critically acclaimed album "Rock Steady". They hinted a reunion in November 2008, and later followed it up with a tour featuring Paramore in 2009. Talks and rumors about their new album intensified in the months leading to 2011.
Last summer, the band hit the studio with Major Lazer. Earlier this year, frontwoman Gwen and bassist Tony visited "American Idol" to mentor its top 8 contestants for a "songs of the 80s"-themed performance show.
