No Doubt fans are used to waiting for new material from the ska-punk band. It has been a decade since the release of Rock Steady in 2001, but when news broke that a new LP was on the way, fans rejoiced. A 2011 release was expected, but the band announced recently that the album is officially pushed back to 2012.
The band released a statement via their website today saying, “Ideally our new record would be coming out this year but it’s just not ready yet. We don’t want to rush this album just to get it out.”
News regarding the album has slowly been announced. In June it was revealed that Spike Stent, who has produced Madonna and Depeche Mode, would be behind No Doubt’s newest effort. They will also do a collaboration with Major Lazer on a track titled “Push and Shove.”
The message also promises to keep their fans updated more often via social media sites and that they will release more information as soon as they can.
