FROM THE NEWS NEST: No Doubt back in the studio and more.
I’m having flashbacks of jumping up on my bed as a preteen lip syncing for my life to “Don’t Speak”: No Doubt (pictured) will be heading back to the studio to record a new album, the first since 2001′s Rock Steady. The band tweeted: “The 4 of us are 2gethr in Hllywd today- 2 start recording the first batch of new ND songs.” Love it!
Touring for the first time since the departure of bassist Carlos Dengler and after a three-year hiatus, Interpol will be all over North America this summer. Though there are no stops in California (sadness), the band will be opening for U2 on nine of those dates.
Ah, Lou Reed… always walking on the wild side. The former Velvet Underground frontman will be performing a 20-minute concert for dogs in Australia as a part of the Vivid Live Festival. He and his longtime partner Laurie Anderson will play high frequency whistles that only dogs can hear. No word on what the set list will look like.
