The UK’s The Telegraph has posted a great new interview with Gwen.  Read it here!

Brazil’s G1 has posted a new interview with Tom.  Here is the Google translation:

“To the listener, the main change between now No Doubt released the album “Push and shove” and No Doubt did successfully for nearly two decades is in the sound: melodic ska of “Tragic kingdom” (1995), which sold more 16 million copies, now share space with influences from contemporary electronic music.

But there is another fundamental change, this personal, between the “two” versions of the group. Who is explains guitarist Tom Dumont, told the G1 phone. “The biggest difference in our lives is probably the fact that we have become parents,” he says with a laugh. “Having children is not very rock’n’roll, but the kids really come first now. Today, the children come before the rock. “

By the reckoning of the musician, the four members of No Doubt have added up eight children.Two are of Gwen Stefani, the lead singer, married to Gavin Rossdale of Bush. According to Dumont, current life on the road is harder to Gwen than for their partners. He says even though the letters are still written by the singer. In “Push and shove,” however, Tony Kanal (bass) started to help in the composition of verses.

“Although the story of the two, they really have a great working relationship, with much respect,” said Dumont. Gwen and Kanal dated for seven years before the fame. The termination of the relationship is the main theme of banda hit, “Do not speak.” The guitarist says that the reception of “Do not speak” the label did propose that the quartet to record versions in other languages, such as Spanish and Portuguese. Fearing sound pretty authentic, No Doubt refused. Read, then, the main parts of the conversation.

G1 – Gwen said “push and shove” is the record of your life. Do you agree? 
Tom Dumont –
 Well, I think that whenever we make a record, we think it is the job of our lives(laughs) . Funny thing, this disc is that, when finished recording, mixing and mastering, I was so bored, I could not hear him anymore. I was not listening for about a month. But after that, I had to make a trip an hour drive to Los Angeles, and I thought to myself: “This is my chance, I’ll hear it again, open-minded and like the first time.” Then I heard, from beginning to end, and I felt really good, proud. I think we did a great job.

G1 – In your opinion, what is the main difference between that of No Doubt “Tragic kingdom” and No Doubt for “Push and shove?” 
Tom Dumont –
 Wow! It is this: we are the same people, there is a lifetime in those 15 years.The biggest difference in our lives is probably the fact that we have become parents. Having children is not very rock’n’roll (laughs) , but the kids really come first now. Today the children come before the rock. Music and No Doubt have been really an escape. We have two lives, you know?

G1 – How many children do you have in total? 
Tom Dumont –
 I think eight. It’s a gang (laughs) . The kids are awesome, everyone is always playing together, are friends. But the hardest part is with Gwen because she is the mother. She has two little boys, who go with her to every corner, because they need the mother – and she must be a mother first. This is the most complicated thing for her.

G1 – Many fans of No Doubt walked praising the fact the band have changed little over the years and good way to Gwen, who does not seem stale. What do you think? 
Tom Dumont –
 This is something funny about us. Looking back at our history, I see that this has always been true. We have this terrible fear of repeating ourselves. At the time of the “Tragic kingdom”, he had incredible success – with “Do not speak”, “Just a girl” and other singles. I think we always change. The difficult thing about this is that some fans want the band still sounds sounded like 15 years ago – and are disappointed. Moreover, we feel we must move forward, we do not want to stay stagnant.

G1 – The way you work together changed in this new album? Gwen continues to write lyrics? 
Tom Dumont –
 Yes This disc was a little different. In the past, most stayed with Gwen, and she worked hard in the lyrics with Tony. It was a novelty. The truth is that Gwen is still writing songs about her life, about their emotions, feelings, observations. And Tony, instead of bringing ideas to the songs, helped with … more [After short pause] With the grammar, with descriptions. But it’s still the life of Gwen – she’s not singing about the life of Tony, you know (laughs) Although the story of the two, they really have a great working relationship, with much respect. It’s great to see them so.

G1 – The lyrics of “Do not speak” is very personal, but it became a hit in places where people do not speak English. Imagine why? 
Tom Dumont – 
(Laughs) The way this works has always intrigued me. This is a question you can answer better than me. You, who speaks Portuguese, while listening to a song in English, translated the letter or just understand the emotion of the tunes?

G1 – “Do not speak” does not have a hard letter, I think many people could understand at least that part. The rest might be more difficult … 
Tom Dumont –
 The funny thing is, “Do not speak” became a huge hit around the world and even proposed label: “If you could rewrite in different languages – like Spanish , Portuguese – maybe you do not sell more records … “. Do not pretend to be authentic sang in different languages.There was not respected because other countries, it was not because we wanted to strive to be something we were not. At the beginning of the band, especially during the “Tragic kingdom” and in late 1990, curtíamos really travel to many place as we could. We were excited by the fact that people can sing our lyrics.

G1 – No new record, you tried to modernize the sound of No Doubt? 
Tom Dumont –
 Yes We were inspired by the music of the past and what is happening in music today. “Push and shove” [the title track] is a crazy music at the verses there is a dance floor beat, somehow has a medium tempo house. But at the same time, it sounds like a very old ska 1960s. And then comes the chorus crazy. We started hearing some music to inspire us and realized we had something close to dubstep there. Just a little. But is not that we wanted to make dubstep or something. I think it’s fun to take elements of things we found there. I do not know how people will react to this, but we love.

G1 – The No Doubt played recently at an event for fans too young, the Teen Choice Awards. In your opinion, what is the difference between today’s teens and the 1990s? At that time, buying up CDs 
Tom Dumont –
 The culture has changed – and completely changed the way people listen to music. It’s true. When we were young, it was expensive to buy CDs [When buying] I listened to each track a hundred times, read all the letters of the booklet. Nowadays, it seems that nobody buys. People hear on YouTube, the Internet. The fact is that we do not want to go back to what we were before, technology is always progressing. But today is in the 1990 or more old, the music has to be good by itself, to make someone want to hear it.

G1 – In an interview, you said you practiced guitar for long hours, and who now only picks up only when the instrument is inspiration. The song would become a pleasure, and not an obligation. When you realize that? 
Tom Dumont –
 When I was younger, I grew up listening to hard rock – heavy metal and guitar music …

G1 – Which artists? 
Tom Dumont –
 Bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Rush, hard rock, anyway. Kiss, of course.Then, as a teenager, I was very interested in the technical skills demanded that the guitar, or how it could play as fast as Yngwie Malmsteen. I tried very hard to play that way, read magazines on guitar, practicing eight hours a day. But at the time I entered the No Doubt when I was about 20, I realized I would never be like Yngwie Malmsteen, or as good at that level. I realized that music involves much more than that. It involves emotions, stories that are told. I focused on melodies – I was good enough as a player to do what he wanted. It was a change of focus. The No Doubt helped me get to this point.

G1 – Do you intend to come to Brazil? A single visit was 15 years ago. 
Tom Dumont –
 I actually have a good friend who is Brazilian. He now lives in Sao Paulo, because of work, but lived in Long Beach for 15 years. We were talking about me visit him at the Olympics [in 2016], but I hope to come back and play with the band before that (laughs) .

G1 – His fans also believe. Your friend showed you something about Brazilian music? 
Tom Dumont –
 He likes the same things I do, hard rock, AC / DC, Iron Maiden, you know?

G1 – What are your memories of that trip to Brazil in 1990? 
Tom Dumont –
 We really enjoyed ourselves very much. I have a very specific memory. In Rio we were near the beach, remember to swim in the sea at midnight, and had those bars near the beach, where you could buy beer and go back to the sea, then buy another beer – and so on.”

In a new article posted on, Gwen talks about how she doesn’t like to listen to Return Of Saturn, because it reminds her of a dark period in her life.  This seems to be an excerpt of an article in the December issue of Attitude magazine, of which EIT has posted scans here.

Gwen Stefani can’t bring herself to listen to No Doubt’s 2000 album ‘Return of Saturn’ because it reminds her of a traumatic time in her personal life.Gwen Stefani can’t listen to No Doubt’s ‘Return of Saturn’ album.

The singer says it was a painful time working on the 2000 LP as her personal life was in a mess so she can’t ever being herself to play it again.

Talking about why the band put a birth-control dispenser on the cover, Gwen said: ”That was ’cause I was thinking, ‘Am I gonna have a baby? Am I gonna be married?’ It was a really nasty time period for me. I can’t listen to that record. Ever.

”I found the journals to that record and I can’t read them. It’s so dark!”

Gwen – who now has two sons, Kingston, six, and Zuma, four, with husband Gavin Rossdale, who she married in 2002 – admits a lot of the songs on the album are very ”self-indulgent” though she is proud of some of her writing on the record.

She told Attitude magazine: ”That record is so self-indulgent. There’s some really good songwriting on that record, though. I think ‘Magic’s in the Make-up’ is one of the best songs I’ve ever written.””

Hello!  I’ve added a video of No Doubt’s awesome performance of “Looking Hot” at the AMAs here!

Hurricane Sandy benefit auction

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Hello!  No Doubt was shown on MTV’s “Restore The Shore” benefit last night.  MTV has posted the whole thing on their web site.  I’ve embedded the video below.  No Doubt is shown very briefly at about 48 minutes into it.  I didn’t add the clip to the downloads section, just because it’s only a few seconds.  So lovely of them to offer their support! They are such caring people! :

In addition, the band just tweeted a few minutes ago about a charity auction to raise money for the hurricane victims:

#NoDoubt are working w/ @charitybuzz to raise money for the victims of #HurricaneSandy. Check out their auction here –

So awesome of them!

Yahoo! Australia has posted a new interview with Tom! :

“The last time Californian pop superstars No Doubt unveiled an album, Apple was also launching its new gizmo – the iPod. The fact that the 11 years between the release of 2001’s Rock Steady and this year’s comeback album, Push and Shove, is a long time in showbiz is not lost on No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont.

“It’s so crazy to think of how everything has changed since then,” he says from London, where the quartet were on the promotional trail.

“Even though the technology and the way people listen to music is different . . . the thing that remains the same is that the songs have to be good. The songs have to be compelling, so they’ll touch people and move people emotionally.

“We’re still trying to achieve a goal of something that people want to listen to and something that pleases us. How they listen to it, and the immediacy of being able to pull up the song on YouTube or iTunes or Spotify or whatever, matters a lot less than the song itself.”

An even bigger impact on the creation of Push and Shove is the eight children the four members have had between them since Rock Steady. In particular, Gwen Stefani’s two children with rock star hubby Gavin Rossdale have meant the band is no longer top priority.

“In the old days, we used to do 12-hour days in the studio,” says Dumont, who has kids aged 6, 4 and 20 months.

“We used to tour for months and now it’s all scaled back, especially for Gwen because she’s a mum and she’s got to be there for her kids first.

“I really admire her for doing that. It would be easy for her to escape her responsibilities but she really doesn’t, she’s really there . . . she’s a mum first and then a singer second.

“That really did impact the amount

of time it took us to make this record.”

The juggling act that Stefani performs to balance the needs of sons Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4, with her career is reflected in the new album’s lead single, Settle Down. Like most of Push and Shove, the track was written with bassist, keyboardist and her former beau Tony Kanal – she wrote 1996 mega-smash Don’t Speak about the demise of their seven-year relationship.

“(Settle Down) is about being overwhelmed,” Stefani says in the press release accompanying the new album, “having so much going on and trying to glide through life saying ‘I can do all this’ but actually it’s more like ‘I’m going crazy, I don’t know if I can do all this’ . . . There are so many days when I fail.”

No Doubt started work on Push and Shove four years ago. After struggling to write songs they were happy with, the band hit the road in 2009, playing 58 shows before returning to the studio with a fresh approach.

“In the old days we definitely would write 20 or 30 songs and pick the best ones,” Dumont says. “Once we got rolling on a song, instead of scrapping it if it wasn’t good enough we would rewrite and rewrite and rewrite.

“There were songs that we rewrote the chorus three times, trying to get it right. There were songs that we re-recorded two or three times in totally different approaches to try to get it right.

“It was a different process but it ended up, I think, in the same result as far as we end up with 11 songs we’re really proud of.”

There are exactly 11 new songs, without any spare for tour edition CDs or iTunes bonus tracks. And only one song on Push and Shove comes in under four minutes.

“Is that true? Wow,” Dumont exclaims. “That’s definitely a little bit of self- indulgence on our part.” (Of course, edited versions will be issued to keep the record company and radio stations appeased.)

Push and Shove should also please fans – the infusion new wave, reggae and rock into radio-friendly and hook-laden pop picks up where Rock Steady left off. The band injects enough fresh ideas, particularly via the title track which features DJ/producer Diplo in his Major Lazer dancehall guise.

“We always will want to move forward. We hate repeating ourselves,” Dumont says. “But at the same time we have all these fans that love us for the sound that they’ve grown up on with No Doubt.

“We try to have a foot in each world. We want to push things forward and do new things and have our album sound modern but, at the same time, we don’t want to completely lose sight of our past.”

‘The thing that remains the same is that the songs have to be . . . compelling, so they’ll touch people and move people emotionally.'”

“The Windows Phone 8 ad campaign kicks off today with spots featuring actress Jessica Alba and singer Gwen Stefani. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Personally, I thought the 30-second ads—which will appear on both web and TV—were fun and do a nice job of showing how personal and unique Windows Phone is. Jessica Alba, a mother of two, talks about how she uses the new Kid’s Corner feature.  Gwen Stefani is a Skype and Office fan. (It’s also fun to check out celeb Start screens.)

The campaign is just getting underway. There are more ads—with comedian Andy Samberg and football quarterback Cam Newton—and surprises to come. So stay tuned.”

They’ve posted Gwen’s ad to YouTube! :

It’s already started airing on TV!

In a new interview with MTV UK, No Doubt talk about their upcoming performance on the EMA’s :

“No Doubt are set to make their debut at the 2012 MTV EMA in Frankfurt tomorrow night (11th November) – with the reunited rockers exclusively telling MTV News that fans are in store for a ‘straight forward’ classic performance.

While leading lady Gwen Stefani may have graced the EMA stage as a solo artist before, this time, she will be joined by fellow No Doubters Tony Ashwin Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont for the first time at the Festhalle for this year’s event.

Speaking of what we can expect from their performance, Gwen revealed: “We decided to do a straight forward, No Doubt band performance.”

Tony then said: “It’s gonna be less is more”, to which Stefani agreed: “Less is more.”

She continued: “It’s gonna be very graphic and just a straight up, No Doubt, band performance, just show and tell it like it is kinda thing right? No tricks up our sleeves.”

Guitarist Tom explained: “I think it might stand out because the great thing about this show is that it’s theatrical, it’s massive and it has all these concepts and then we are gonna have a unique space in all that.”

When asked who of their fellow performers they are looking forward to seeing, Adrian stated: “The Killers.”

Gwen revealed: “Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift.”

Tom added: “I’m really excited about Taylor Swift and Muse as well, both of them are my favourites.”

He also went on to confess to being a fan of South Korean singer PSY and his Gangnam Style, but added that he would not be joining him on stage to do his now famous horse-riding dance: “I love the dance and I love the video but I’m not gonna do it.”

The 2012 MTV EMA will air live from Frankfurt’s Festhalle on Sunday, 11th November at 9pm only on MTV! Don’t miss it!

By Joanne Dorken @mtvuknews”

It appears that Gwen may be in an upcoming ad campaign for a new Windows phone?  Perhaps only in the UK?  From this article on

“And in a strange quirk of fate, James has just landed one of the most lucrative gigs of his life — as one of the faces of Microsoft’s new mobile phone.
His Gavin & Stacey character Smithy would be impressed.
James joins a stellar list of names who have also signed up for the campaign — including JAY-Z and GWEN STEFANI.”

Gwen is featured in an article about the 90’s in the November issue of Glamour magazine:
