No Doubt are putting the finishing touches on their first album in more than a decade (we still don't know what it's called, but we do know it'll be in stores September 25), and now, they've announced their return to the stage: July 22, at the Teen Choice Awards.

The band broke the news via their Twitter account, writing, "You may have heard the rumors ... and yes, we will be performing on the Teen Choice Awards in July!"

At the moment, No Doubt are the only artists confirmed to play the TCAs, which air July 22 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. It also marks their first performance since wrapping a summer tour with Paramore in 2009 and a pair of Bridge School benefit shows in October of the same year.

In recent months, there's been an uptick in activity on the follow-up to 2001's Rock Steady album, which No Doubt have been working on in earnest since 2008. Sessions for the new album have been helmed by producer Mark "Spike" Stent, and the band has been keeping fans updated on developments through Twitter and with in-studio videos. The first of those videos shows ND polishing a Diplo and Switch track called "Push and Shove" and, according to their tweets, other new tunes include "Undone" and "Heaven."

Last summer, Rolling Stone got an advance listen to a handful of songs from the album, including "Settle Down" and "One More Summer." It's not known if those tunes will end up making the final cut for the still-untitled album.
