No Doubt have hinted they will split up following the release of their fourth album, â€˜Return Of Saturnâ€™. After a press conference to launch the album at the London Park Lane Hotel last week, drummer Adrian Young told NME: â€œAs I sit here right now â€“though things could change- this is my last record. We all went into this record thinking, â€˜This could be our last. Letâ€™s try to make it as good as we can. â€™â€
Guitarist Tom Dumont said: â€œNone of us have made any plans for whatâ€™s gonna happen after this. Weâ€™ll tour all this year â€“after that itâ€™s totally a blank canvas.â€
Bassist Tony Kanal agreed. He said: â€œWeâ€™v been going in this band for 13 years now, itâ€™s really hard to say how long weâ€™ll keep going on for. Things change, priorities change in everyoneâ€™s lives. Adrian just got married, you get to the age of 30 and you start thinking about families and stuff like that.â€
Singer Gwen Stefani said: â€œNone of us up to this point have had any children or been married. Adrian just did it, and itâ€™s a big deal, itâ€™s like suddenly you have another half. But I think weâ€™re all looking forward, thereâ€™s so much we havenâ€™t done yet as far as all that part.â€ â€˜Return Of Saturnâ€™ is the follow-up to the 15 million-selling â€˜Tragic Kingdomâ€™, and is released through Polydor on April 10. It is preceded by a new single, â€˜Ex-Girlfriendâ€™, on March 13.
