Published Dec 17, 2008As we previously reported, No Doubt recently announced via a cutesy fake IM message that they will be reuniting for recording and touring in 2009. While they kind of suggested that they'd be recording a new album, drummer Adrian Young has clarified that it will not be ready in 2009.
In an interview with MTV News, Young said, "We've been working on a new record off and on now for a bit of time, and we're going to continue to work on a new record next year... We're going to start touring in the spring of '09 through the summer, and we're going to continue to work on music while we're traveling. [We'll have] a mobile studio on the bus and eventually get to a new No Doubt record."
On the eventual record's sound, Young said it's more than likely that they will gravitate towards their reggae influence, saying that he "can play reggae music to [his] grave." He also spoke of the unique circumstances of releasing music in the internet age, stating, "On one level, it's scary to watch successful bands put out records and maybe they were less of a success than their past records, but it's also pretty awesome to watch any band put out a CD with all the different Internet accessibility," he said. "It's a little daunting to put out a record for a successful group. I don't know what's going to happen. We're going to see."
