No Doubt have been included on The Daily Beast’s list of most anticipated releases for 2012. They are a huge online zine so this is pretty cool. They have been featured on so many of these lists, it’s so exciting! New year, new No Doubt! Thanks to Pablo for the link!
The Daily Beast — In the decade-plus since this multi-platinum-selling ska-pop quartet released its last album, Rock Steady, lead singer Gwen Stefani stepped away from the band to have children with Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale and forge a chart-topping, arena-rocking career as a solo artist. Although No Doubtâ€™s new disc was scheduled for release this year (with recording begun in 2008), the group punted its rollout into 2012. â€œWe donâ€™t want to rush this album just to get it out,â€ the band said in a statement. But does out of earshot mean out of mind? As evidenced by No Doubtâ€™s rumored announcement as a co-headliner for 2012â€™s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival*â€”and, moreover, the excitement that news causedâ€”the fans apparently havenâ€™t forgotten them or moved on.
* We also want to mention that mid-January is when Coachella reveals their official lineup (which No Doubt is rumored to headline) so hopefully we should know soon!
