No Doubt fans have been waiting years for the group to reunite and now that they finally have, the band has gearing up for the release of their new album "Push And Shove."
Set to be released on September 25th, the group linked up with Billboard magazine to dish on the deets of the project and to reflect on their most successful days, in the 90's.
On the early days of No Doubt hitting it big in the mid-1990s, Gwen Stefani says:
"It was just so fun... We would all play these shows in one night, then everyone would go back to the hotel and we would all be staying there. It really felt like a scene. But it wasn't a scene, it was just whoever happened to be on the radio."
On the group's style, Gwen says:
"We've never fit into any format. Luckily we've been able to fit into both [pop and rock] a little bit, though not really consciously... We've just managed to nudge our way in."
Tony touched on their 2009 tour sparking the reunion, saying:
"We had writer's block up until that point. When we did that tour, it was the waking of the dead. Not only did we get our confidence back, on top of that it gave us the feeling of not needing to rush. All these amazing people were still coming out to see us, so we thought, 'Let's make the best record we can make now.' We wouldn't have this record if we didn't do that tour."
Gwen on the Push and Shove release date (September 25th):
"We would've loved for it to come out sooner. At the same time, we realized that the people that care about us, that have given us our lives, are out there waiting for us, so what does it matter if it's a month here or a month there? As long as we make the record of our lives that we are so proud of. Otherwise, why put something out?"
Well we're happier the album is coming out sooner than never!
Will you guys be snagging it when it drops?
