“It’s kind of like in any relationship, there’s always a back and forth,” said drummer Adrian Young. “We’re like a family here. There’s a lot of pushin’ and shovin’ going on, including making this record. But when we get on stage, that’s where there’s no pushin’ and shovin’.” Watch the interview above, and catch the band’s performances below.
Gwen Stefani briefly touched on the tone of No Doubt’s upcoming album, which seems to reflect, in part, some of the difficulties of being a mother.
“It’s not all fun on the record,” she noted. “There’s always something to complain about. There’s a little bit of being overwhelmed on this record, because it was really hard to try to find the time, you know, with those two little bunny rabbits that I made… It took a long time and it was a real big effort, but totally worth it. The music is just heavenly.”

She also said that it was hard to get back into the swing of writing songs after having her kids, but coming up with “Settle Down” found the band finally clicking again.
“It felt very much like our DNA, like everything that we are,” Stefani said. “The subject is just exactly what I described to you, just trying to make it all work and trying to figure it out.”
