The bleach-blonde quartet made the announcement in a video posted to their official YouTube page on Friday, in which frontwoman Gwen Stefani accidentally botched the news.
"Our record is coming out on September 26th," she declared, prompting laughs from her bandmates. With a little help from bassist Tony Kanal, the group officially revealed the release as September 25th.
"We are incredibly excited to share the new music with you," the band posted on their website. "Ear candy coming your way!" No Doubt also promised a fully revamped site and brand new artwork to coincide with the release.

"Thank you all so much for your support over the last 25 years. We're really proud of our new album and we hope you love it as much as we do," the statement continued. "We'll be posting a lot of updates between now and September as we shoot the video and start rehearsing to perform the new songs live for all of you. We'll send plenty of photos and webisodes as we go so you're there with us. See you soon…"
The new album will be No Doubt's first since 2001's Rock Steady. Since then, Stefani has released two notable solo efforts and the group reunited for a slew of live performances in 2009.
