Things sure have changed for one of Orange County's biggest success stories since we last checked in. But babies, weddings, solo careers, clothing labels have been finally put aside: No Doubt has announced they'll be reforming for a comeback tour in 2009–but don't expect a new record any time soon. The band released a statement Dec. 3 via their official website that they're currently working on tour dates, along with their first (professional) group photograph in years (pictured).
Though guitarist Tom Dumont told the Weekly in September 2007 that he was “writing music with the guys,” drummer Adrian Young has shared with MTV, “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 travelling. [We'll have] a mobile studio on the bus and eventually get to a new No Doubt record.”
