No Doubt Inch Closer To Studio

Chart-topping pop-ska act No Doubt are nearly finished writing

their upcoming LP, according to guitarist Tom Dumont. In a

posting on No Doubt's official website, Dumont writes: "We've pretty

much finished writing the whole album and it just seems we've done

nothing but write songs for the past 11 months. A notable new song is in the key of F# and tentatively titled 'Touch and Go.' We're still trying to work out producer stuff so we can just go in and finish recording."
