No Doubt pushes back 2013 tour plans to record new album

By Daniel S Levine,

In a letter to fans on Facebook, No Doubt said that they will push back any plans to tour this year so they can focus on a follow-up to 2012’s Push and Shove.

The group wrote that while they promoted the album around the world, frontwoman Gwen Stefani was “inspired to write new music.” So, after talking about touring in 2013, they decided against it so they could focus on new music.

“We have decided to follow our muse for the time being and focus on this new music that we don't want to stop,” the statement reads. “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.”

According to MTV News, the group didn’t announce any plans for a full tour for Push and Shove before, although they did perform a few shows at the Gibson Amphitheatre in California. They also performed on TV.

Their album sold just 240,000 copies and the video for their single “Looking Hot” was pulled because of charges of racism.

In today’s Facebook post, the group didn’t give any specific target dates for a tour or a new album and their label Interscope didn’t have a comment for MTV. Still, fans should be encouraged that they are working on new music. After all, it took them 11 years to release Push and Shove, so it sounds like they don’t want fans to wait that long again.
