No Doubt back in the studio after six years

According to the band's Twitter account, Gwen Stefani and No Doubt are back in the recording studio for the first time since the recording of 2001's Rock Steady.

The quartet, who have been on tour since 2009's Bamboozle fest after a five-year hiatus, had originally written and recorded some songs a few months before now but decided to scrap them in favor of starting fresh.

As of now, a release date has not been announced for the album, nor has any tentative tour dates. Nonetheless, the prospect of new songs from the band is enticing. Given how on fire Stefani has been since her solo career started, coupled with the output the band supplied on Rock Steady and before, to see No Doubt produce a dud of an album would be highly surprising.

Hopefully something will come of these sessions. It's been so long since we've heard any truly new No Doubt material, and they've been back together for over a year now. It's about time.
