No Doubt has been one of the world’s favourite punk bands that managed to stay relevant through the years.
The band’s unique sound and style, along with a feisty and fierce female lead singer made it stand out from an array of similar acts that tried to make it. But it seems the band might be going through some major changes since it first formed in 1986.
According to Billboard, No Doubt will be recording a new album without lead singer, Gwen Stefani. Apparently Stefani is refocussing her energy on her solo career and Tom Dumont (guitarist), Adrian Young (drummer) and the band’s bassist, Tony Kanal are recording a new album without the famous female. The remaining members have teamed up with Davey Havok from AFI to record a brand new album. It remains to be seen whether the band is renamed, rebranded and what the new sound will be. The band has also sought new management by hiring Green Day’s Pat Magnarella.
Gwen Stefani is set to release her third solo album called This Is What The Truth Feels Like in March 2016. Her previous two albums, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and The Sweet Escape were released in 2004 and 2006 respectively.
No Doubt has released a total of six albums, with the last album being released in 2012 called Push and Shove.
