Last May, ahead of No Doubt‘s 2009 reunion tour, bassist Tony Kanal announced, “Once we reconnect onstage and reconnect with all the people who have supported us, I think it’s going to inspire us to make an amazing record.” Well, I guess that happened, as, now, almost one year later, No Doubt has revealed that they are currently hard at work on the followup to 2001’s Rock Steady.
If fact, if a tweet is evidence of anything, we should expect to see the long-awaited sixth studio album from No Doubt very soon. Over the last couple of years the band has intermittently been working on new material, but until now they’d given no word that said material would ever result in anything. After all, there’s been more than enough reason to suspect a degree of animosity would rise amongst them during all of this. However, according to guitarist Tom Dumont’s recent tweet, “Tony and Gwen are rocking the synth. Our little studio is warm and candlelit, above the glowing city”.
During the past week, Dumont has been tweeting about the band’s studio progress rather consistently, showing evidence that No Doubt is on the up and up. Let’s just hope the end result isn’t another Rock Steady.
