“We have decided to follow our muse for the time being and focus on this new music that we don't want to stop," the band writes on Facebook.

No Doubt have confirmed that they are back in the studio working on their next album. The band posted on Facebook earlier today that they have returned to Los Angeles and plan to postpone some of their 2013 touring so they can spend time recording new tunes.

“While we were traveling the world last year promoting Push And Shove, Gwen mentioned she was inspired to write new music,” the band wrote on Facebook. “In December, around the time of our hometown shows, we discussed the idea of starting 2013 by getting back into the studio together. We did so in January and the new music started flowing with unexpected ease. After spending three years recording the last album, this new pace feels incredibly exciting."

“We have decided to follow our muse for the time being and focus on this new music that we don't want to stop. So, we will be postponing our tour plans briefly while we endeavor to create something special and inspired. Our goal as a band is to share this new music with you as quickly as possible -- both recorded and live on tour.”

Push and Shove, No Doubt’s first new album in over a decade, came out in September 2012, after which the group toured extensively, including a five-night bow at Los Angeles' Gibson Amphitheatre.

No Doubt currently do not have any live shows announced for 2013, but promise to keep fans "updated with photos and videos from the studio.”
