Biography

London, United Kingdom (1998 – present)

Gorillaz are a virtual band formed in 1998 by Damon Albarn of Blur, and Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the comic book Tank Girl. They had the idea to create the band while watching MTV in their London flat and originally intended to call the project Gorilla.

The band consists of four fictional band members: 2-D (vocals, keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar, vocals), and Russel Hobbs (drums). These characters only appear in animated form and are not alter-egos of real people, as is often mistakenly assumed. There is an extensive fictional back-story behind these band members, written by Albarn and Hewlett. Their albums, several of their music videos, and their autobiographical book Rise Of The Ogre all tell the saga. Damon Albarn is the only permanent musical contributor to the band, which is also a collaboration between various musicians. Their style is broad with a large number of alternative influences including , , and .

They have released four studio albums: Gorillaz (2001), Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010) and The Fall (Also in 2010). Additionally, they have put out two B-side collections, G-Sides (2001) and D-Sides (2007), and a reggae remix of the Gorillaz album entitled Laika Come Home (2002).

    People still think The Fall was a proper studio album and not a small side project. Ha.

    It's been 5 years, he's not going to record the next Gorillaz album solely on his iPad in the run up to 2016.

    I need some Plastic Beach/Demon Days-level material, The Fall was a disappointment. [2]

    You can't really compare The Fall with their previous albums. I mean it was written during a tour on Damons iPad. You can't expect it to be the next Demon Days. But still, Amarillo is simply fantastic.

    The Fall was great stuff. Yeah this wasn't previous albums style, but it's marvelous in its uniqueness. Especially in fact, it was born on Damon's knee

    There'll probably be a single very late in the year. That is if it's an early 2016 release. Which I hope it is.
