The band No Doubt is making a triumphant return to music after more than a decade, but now things are totally different! Read on to find out what the group said about being parents and being on tour.
No Doubt took an 11-year hiatus from making music to pursue other ventures — most importantly, being parents. The members of the band: Gwen Stefani, Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal, and Adrian Young, all talked about how making music and their new album Push and Shove is a lot different this time around.
The band appeared on Good Morning America on July 27, and discussed their upcoming record. With life evolving so much, the band said their content has also matured.
“There is a little bit of being overwhelmed on this record. It was really hard to try to find the time because of those two little bunny rabbits I had,” lead singer Gwen Stefani said, referring to her two kids Kingston and Zuma with husband Gavin Rosdale.
“I would do that all day and then try to show up and write songs during this little window of time and it took a real big of effort but it was totally worth it. The music is just heavenly,” she added.
Gwen isn’t the only parent — among all of the band members, they have eight kids!
Bandmate Tony Kanal also talked about juggling his roles as rockstar and father.
“I was telling my wife the other night we’ve been to New York so many times as a band but this is my favorite trip because my 18 month baby is in the other room,” he said. “And I get to do this and then see her afterwards and its just the best feeling.”
Being parents has also changed the way the band parties! “Our backstage party room that use to have a DJ and a bar is now a romper room,” Tony added.
How sweet! We love how No Doubt can make great music while also being good parents and role models.
