If you were hoping to catch No Doubt perform live sometime soon, we've got some bad news. The band has had a sudden burst of creative energy and has opted to return to the studio in lieu of touring behind their 2012 album 'Push and Shove.'

The band wrote on their official website:

Hi Everyone,
Greetings from the studio in Los Angeles...Yes, that's right, the studio!

While we were traveling the world last year promoting Push And Shove, Gwen mentioned she was inspired to write new music. In December, around the time of our hometown shows, we discussed the idea of starting 2013 by getting back into the studio together. We did so in January and the new music started flowing with unexpected ease. After spending three years recording the last album, this new pace feels incredibly exciting.

We have decided to follow our muse for the time being and focus on this new music that we don't want to stop. So, we will be postponing our tour plans briefly while we endeavor to create something special and inspired. Our goal as a band is to share this new music with you as quickly as possible - both recorded and live on tour.

As always, thank you all for your kind words, incredible support and patience. We promise to keep you updated with photos and videos from the studio, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to get the latest updates. We will see you soon!

Gwen, Tony, Tom, Adrian
No Doubt

It could be that the band was not thrilled with the response to their big comeback album and decided to give it another go. Maybe the creative juices kicked into high gear now that they are back together and in their groove. Perhaps they just need to shake the 'Spiderwebs' off the songwriting and recording process? *ba dum tss*

The band had not announced any official touring plans, but they must have had them in the works if they chose to make a big announcement like this. Either way, we look forward to hearing their new material and hope they decide to tour once again!
