The members of No Doubt announced Tuesday that they are postponing a planned tour to focus on recording their seventh studio album.

"While we were traveling the world last year promoting 'Push And Shove,' Gwen mentioned she was inspired to write new music," the band posted on their Facebook page. "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."

No Doubt released their sixth album, "Push and Shove", back in September, more than a decade since their last release, "Rock Steady" in 2001.

There's no word yet on when to expect another album or tour, but No Doubt promised to keep fans updated "with photos and videos from the studio."
