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.
