No Doubt will end their five-year hiatus for a tour in 2009, the band revealed in an instant message conversation on their official Website. The band, sans Gwen Stefani, started work on their first album since 2001's Rock Steady earlier this year, crafting songs while Stefani was pregnant with her second child. "I think if we go out on tour it will inspire us to write," Stefani says in the chat. "I need to see the fans out there." The band will hit the road "soon," and continue writing and recording the album as they tour (they've already confirmed one date at Bamboozle). "I think playing the shows would make the studio time even better," writes bassist Tony Kanal. No other details regarding exact tour dates were revealed. The band is reportedly working with producer Mark "Spike" Stent, who previously helmed tracks on the band's last album Rock Steady and on Stefani's first solo album Love. Angel. Music. Baby.
