No Doubt pushes back the release date for first album since 2001 to next year

Poppy ska-rockers No Doubt have delayed the release of its first album since 2001's Rock Steady until next year, the band announced on its website this week. Clearly the only response to this news is ... No Doubt is still together? Actually, the band has been reunited since 2009, when it did a summer tour. No Doubt apparently has been working on new material throughout the year, announcing back in January that it had "10 new songs written." But those songs aren't yet ready for public consumption.

"Ideally our new record would be coming out this year but it's just not ready yet. We don't want to rush this album just to get it out," the band stated on its website. "This collection of songs means everything to us and our only priority right now is to make sure that it's the best album we can possibly make. There is still more work for us to do." [Via Billboard]
