No Doubt To Record In New York

No Doubt, Dave Matthews Band, Marilyn Manson, Puff Daddy, George Michael, Thurston Moore...

Southern California ska-pop act No Doubt are set to move to New York to begin

working with producer Michael Beinhorn (Hole, Marilyn

Manson) on tracks for the follow-up to their chart-topping Tragic Kingdom,

according to a posting on the band's official website by guitarist Tom Dumont.

"We're about to begin another chapter in our quest to realize this next album," Dumont

wrote. "After nine months of writing, we're going to leave the comfort of home behind and

move to New York City until we finish recording. So far there seems to be a definite

lyrical theme to these songs, and once again we've been able to cast aside any pressure

to conform to any of our musical predilections."
