The members of No Doubt have their feet firmly planted in a recording studio with hopes to have a new album out to fans soon, according to the group’s official Facebook page.
On Tuesday, No Doubt posted a message to their fans explaining why the band has decided to postpone a planned tour in favor of recording new music for an upcoming album.
In the Facebook message, the band explains that when creative inspiration strikes, they follow their instincts:
“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.”
Yahoo! News writes that 2012’s Push And Shove was No Doubt’s first studio album in over ten years. Following the release of Rock Steady in 2001, the group took a break to work on solo ventures.
While the band’s studio time will keep them off the touring circuit for the near future, they hope to hit the road once the new album is complete:
“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.”
