It’s been revealed in a new statement from the band that their upcoming Teen Choice Awards performance on July 22 will be their first live televised performance of the new single! Tony says that the band is stoked to start playing live again and that performing in Los Anegles for the TCA makes it more “awesome”. We are hoping we hear the song before the performance but the article is saying that the band will “debut” it live onstage. Tom mentioned before that we will be getting the music video and single at the same time. Either way, we are so excited that the new era is about to take off in less than two months!
LA Times — No Doubt fans eager to hear samples of a long-simmering reunion album will finally get a taste when the band hits the stage at the upcoming Teen Choice Awards.
The Grammy Award-winning SoCal ska-pop band will perform together for the first time in a year-and-a-half at the awards, airing live on Fox on July 22, where they plan to debut the first single off their new project.
â€œI can’t believe this is actually happening. The idea of playing our new music live is heaven on earth,â€ lead singer Gwen Stefani said in a statement. â€œCan’t wait to share it!!â€
â€œWe’re so stoked to finally start performing these new songs live,â€ bassist Tony Kanal added. â€œAnd to be doing the first performance of our first single here in Los Angeles makes it even more awesome.â€
The band has remained mostly mum about the follow-up to 2001’s multi-platinum “Rock Steady,â€ dropping only a few Facebook photos and cryptic tweets during the lengthy writing and recording process. In September, band members announced that they needed to delay the as-yet-untitled project.
“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,” they wrote. “This collection of songs means everything to us, and our only priority right now is to make sure that it’s the best album we can possibly make. There is still more work for us to do.”
No Doubt last performed in 2010 at the annual Kennedy Center Honors.
