Formed in Anaheim, CA in 1986 and bred in the Southern California Mod/Ska scene, No Doubt expanded their sound and earned international acclaim with their 1995 album Tragic Kingdom, including the now classic single "Don't Speak" among many others. Their follow-up, Return of Saturn, was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2001 Grammy Awards. The following year, the band won two Grammy Awards for the multi-platinum Rock Steady and performed with U2, Sting and The Rolling Stones.
After the double-platinum retrospective The Singles 1992-2003, featuring the hit "It's My Life," lead singer Gwen Stefani released two successful solo albums in 2004 and 2006, respectively. In 2009, after a nearly five-year hiatus, No Doubt completed a 50-plus-city North American tour performing for more than 750,000 fans that summer. The following year they were invited to perform for President Barack Obama and the first lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sir Paul McCartney and others as part of the annual Kennedy Center Honors.
No Doubt's natural camaraderie, not to mention the musical alchemy that occurs when these four friends reunite, is palpable throughout the band's new album Push And Shove -- a supercharged blend of ska-rock, dancehall, and electronic pop that will remind people why No Doubt has maintained its position as one of the most beloved and commercially successful acts of the past 20 years. Push and Shove, featuring the lead single "Settle Down," will be released on September 25, 2012.
