No Doubt To Swing Through California, Nevada On Club Tour

Tour precedes release of follow-up to Tragic Kingdom.

No Doubt, who are working on a new album for release next year, will play

eight club dates in California and Nevada starting late this month.

The ska-pop group's new recording project is the follow-up to its 1995

breakthrough Tragic Kingdom. No Doubt's tour will begin Sept. 30

at the University of California at San Diego Center Ballroom, wrapping

up at the Crest Theater in Sacramento, Calif., on Oct. 11. The dates are

listed on the California band's official website (www.nodoubt.com).

The new album, tentatively called Artificial Sweetener, was

originally scheduled for a November release, but was pushed back so the

band could record more songs, according to a band spokesperson. Glen

Ballard, who has collaborated with Michael Jackson, Alanis Morissette

and Aerosmith, is producing the record.

In June, lead singer Gwen Stefani said, "The 13 years we spent being in

this band is going to be reflected on this [album]."

Tragic Kingdom spawned the hits "Just a Girl" (RealAudio

excerpt) and "Don't Speak." The band was given a Diamond Award

by the Recording Industry Association of America earlier this year,

recognizing shipments of 10 million copies of the album.
