No Doubt to release new album this fall

It's been just over a decade since No Doubt released a new album, but the wait will be over this fall.

As they revealed on their website, the band is set to release their sixth offering on September 25. ""We are incredibly excited to share the new music with you," they posted on their site. "Ear candy coming your way!"

Fans have been waiting 11 years for such an announcement, and the band members, including Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont, thanked their listeners for sticking by them over the years.

"Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years," the group wrote. "We're really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do."

MTV reports that the project has actually been in the works for the past four years, but they had a slow start as Stefani was then pregnant with her second child.

Now that her second son, Zuma, is 4, and shes had time to pound out solo projects and focus on her fashion line, its all systems go for a reunion. Last month, the band announced via Twitter that the long-awaited album - which has not yet been named - was mixed and ready to go."

Fans can even expect a video to pop up soon: according to their site, the group is ready to "shoot the video and start rehearsing to perform the new songs live for all of you."

No word yet on a first single, but perhaps it'll be Settle Down, which a writer for Rolling Stone has called a "party-ready reggae blast." Another track, "One More Summer," might also provide a hint at this forthcoming album's sound, as Rolling Stone said it updated "the band's ska-pop sound with pounding dance beats, arena-size guitars and a beyond-catchy chorus."
