No Doubt are finally ramping up the hype machine for their first album in more than a decade. On Monday, they revealed the title of the follow-up to 2001’s Rock Steady, posting a note to fans on their website with the details.
“Hope you are sitting down because we’ve got some really big news to share with you,” they wrote. “While adding the finishing touches to our new album we realized it was time to name it … so we did, and the name is … (drum roll please) … Push and Shove!!!”
The album, due out on September 25, will be preceded by the single “Settle Down,” which is slated for release on July 16. The band said they are filming a video for “Down” this week with longtime friend and collaborator Sophie Muller (“Don’t Speak,” “Underneath It All,” “Simple Kind of Life”).
“We can’t wait to share it all with you. See you out there soon,” they added. Gwen Stefani and the boys are expected to make their live performance debut of the song at the July 22 Teen Choice Awards . The appearance will be their first performance since wrapping a summer tour with Paramore in 2009 and a pair of Bridge School benefit shows in October of that year.
In addition to working with producer Mike “Spike” Stent (Madonna, U2, Lady Gaga) they’ve also hooked up with Diplo and Switch, who helped out on the album’s title track. Other tunes that could end up on the album include “Undone,” “Heaven” and “One More Summer.”
