The rock band No Doubt is set to reunite after almost three years.
The group will perform at the upcoming Teen Choice Awards June 22.
"I can't believe this is actually happening. The idea of playing our new music live is heaven on earth," singer Gwen Stefani said. "Can't wait to share it!!"
The reunion will be the band’s first concert since 2009, when they played at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit.
"We're so stoked to finally start performing these new songs live,” bassist Tony Kanal said. “And to be doing the first performance of our first single in Los Angeles makes it even more awesome."
The band has another reason to celebrate. Its complaint against the video game company Activision, which the band sued in 2009, is going before a jury. The company allegedly gave gamers the means to manipulate the band members’ likenesses in its music video game Band Hero, which the band says is violation of their publicity rights.
"Now that the judge removed the last procedural hurdle Activision erected, No Doubt looks forward to a Los Angeles jury hearing how Activision treated the band,” the band’s attorney, Bert Deixler, said.
The band has also kept details quiet about the follow-up to their 2001 album Rock Steady.
"Ideally, our new record would be coming out this year, but it's just not ready yet. We don't want to rush this album just to get it out," the band wrote. "This collection of songs means everything to us, and our only priority right now is to make sure that it's the best album we can possibly make. There is still more work for us to do."
