Fuse — Get psyched: Weâ€™re just one day away from the release of Push and Shove, No Doubtâ€™s sixth studio releaseâ€”and one of Fuse’s most anticipated albums of the fall! In an exclusive interview with Fuse host Alexa Chung, the bandâ€”who recently kicked off football season with a performance in NYCâ€”talk about their lives outside of music over the past decade, and how their new album continues to rely on an intimate writing process and their ska-new wave roots. Watch the video above.
“I will never be the same like when I wrote Tragic Kingdom,” said Gwen Stefani (who recently told us about motherhood and her solo career). “With Push and Shove I still feel like I didnâ€™t edit myself. We would just sit and talk about what was going on in that moment. I was just trying to take snapshots of things going on in my life.”
Drummer Adrian Young said the band will forever be influenced by the music of their youth from the â€˜70s and â€˜80s. â€œFor all music lovers, you just go back to what you grew up on,â€ Young said. â€œIâ€™m sure weâ€™re always going to listen to the Specials and Duran Duran when weâ€™re 85 years old.â€
â€œEven if we try to listen to new stuff, we always go back to the stuff that we grew up on,â€ bassist Tony Kanal added. â€œThatâ€™s the stuff that has that emotional tie.â€
