No Doubt is pleased to announce a brand new collaboration with British clothing brand Fred Perry. The band have worked closely with the Fred Perry design team to create a collection of classic Fred Perry styles which honor No Doubt's ska and reggae roots. A limited edition slim fit shirt, available for both men and women, will be released in early January 2013. A punk inspired tartan check V neck sweater and 1950s style bomber will be available in Spring 2013.
"Fred Perry is a classic inspiration that has been part of our style since the beginning. Doing this collaboration is an honor." - Gwen
"Collaborating with Fred Perry is a perfect fit for us. The brand has been part of our lives since we were kids." - Tony
"The Fred Perry style was a big part of what the Mod and Ska bands of the U.K. were wearing, and these bands were a major influence on us. It is an honor to do a collaboration with Fred Perry." - Adrian

No Doubt has achieved a lot as a band, including releasing several multi-platinum albums (1995’s diamond-certified Tragic Kingdom, 2001’s Rock Steady, and a 2003 singles collection) and a string of chart-topping hits (“Just A Girl,” “Don’t Speak,” “Hey Baby,” “Hella Good,” “Underneath It All,” and “It’s My Life”). They’ve launched international sold-out tours, won two Grammy Awards and five MTV Video Music Awards, and were invited to perform for Paul McCartney and the President at the annual Kennedy Center Honors in 2010. Lead singer Gwen Stefani has further emerged as a global music and fashion icon via two best-selling solo albums and her L.A.M.B., Harajuku Lovers and Harajuku Mini clothing lines. Through all the success, the band members have remained grounded by a long-standing friendship that began when Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young — bonded by a shared love of ’80s British New Wave and ska bands — began performing together in their hometown of Anaheim, CA. Their natural camaraderie, not to mention the musical alchemy that occurs when these four friends reunite, is palpable throughout the band’s new album Push And Shove — a supercharged blend of ska-rock, dancehall, and electronic pop that will remind people why No Doubt has maintained its position as one of the most beloved and commercially successful acts of the past 20 years.
