No Doubt - Page 3
No Doubt are picking up where 'Rock Steady' left off with 'Push and Shove,' combining their early ska influences with reggae, dance hall, pop and '80s sounds. As awesome as that is in theory, it wasn't what they had in mind ... Because they really didn't have anything in mind for the record.
No Doubt are delivering hard to their loyal fans, old and new. The California-based band may be one of the biggest on the planet in the last 20 years, but they remember their SoCal roots -- and they're getting back to them with a mini-residency in promotion of 'Push and Shove,' which hits shelves Sept. 25.
No Doubt premiered the title track from their upcoming album 'Push and Shove' on Ryan Seacrest's radio show today. While bassist Tony Kanal's claim (that it's their 'Bohemian Rhapsody') may be an exaggeration, the song does incorporate a variety of styles and tempos over its whirlwind four minutes.
Gwen Stefani has been the reigning pop-rock frontwoman for more than a decade now, leading her bandmates in No Doubt with her inimitably impressive vocals. However, when Paramore first broke onto the scene a few years back, fiery-haired songstress Hayley Williams also became a notable frontwoman in the pop world.
No Doubt cover the fall music preview issue of Billboard. Since 'Push and Shove' is their welcome and long-awaited return to making rock music after a lengthy hiatus that saw Gwen Stefani detouring with a pair of successful solo records and trying her hand at divadom, it makes sense! But she's back in the No Doubt driver seat and covering the issue, complete with No Doubt-style checkered border and her bright red lips.
