US rock group No Doubt, led by vocalist Gwen Stefani, is back in the studio to record the group's first album in ten years.

On January 5, guitarist Tom Dumont announced the news on the band's Twitter site: "Holidays over. 2010 done. 10 new songs written. No Doubt's 2011 New Years resolution: to record our new album...beginning TODAY!"

An hour later, he added: "To clarify: last yr we were in studio mostly writing, just some recording. Starting 2day back in the studio, mostly recording..."

No Doubt released their last studio album, Rock Steady, in 2001 but returned in 2003 with The Singles 1992-2003, which was re-released last year. During their career, the band has won two Grammy Awards and sold 28 million records worldwide to date. The band embarked on a US tour throughout the summer of 2009. Stefani has since recorded two solo LPs, selling more than 12 million records worldwide. Her single "Hollaback Girl" was the first US digital download to sell one million copies.
