No Doubt: New Album Push and Shove
After an incredible concert extravaganza the day before, No Doubt returned to Ellen once again! Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young were back for even more great music and to give the Ellen audience an incredible show.
No Doubt were formed in Anaheim, California in 1986, when the band members were just teenagers having a good time. The ska/punk band was first formed by Gwen’s older brother, Eric, and they practiced in the Stefani’s garage. After lineup changes and years of developing a following all around California, No Doubt really hit the big time with their third album, Tragic Kingdom, which was released in October of 1995. That album spawned several hit singles, including “Don’t Speak,” “Just a Girl,” and “Spiderwebs,”and is credited with launching the “third-wave ska revival” of the 1990s.
No Doubt ruled the airwaves in the 90s, becoming one of America’s most popular bands. However, in 2004, the band decided to go on hiatus in order to pursue other independent projects. Gwen Stefani had two children with her husband Gavin Rossdale, and released two solo albums. Tony Kanal, Adrian Young, and Tom Dumont also started families, and Dumont formed the side project Invincible Overlord.
But time apart did not break the devoted band members up. After several years apart, No Doubt decided to return to live performance, and have released a brand new album entitledPush and Shove.
No Doubt: “Settle Down” Performance
No Doubt performed “Settle Down” on Ellen, another new song from Push and Shove. The song represents so many things that we all love about No Doubt: their familiar reggae sound (even featuring steel drums), their exciting live energy, and Gwen’s truly distinctive voice. It’s good to have them back!
