It is no underestimation to say that the return of Gorillaz has been feverishly anticipated. After seven years, they make a critically acclaimed comeback with the launch of their new studio album ‘Humanz’.
If this wasn’t enough, after a secret London show in March, the world’s first and most successful Virtual Act announce that they will be hitting the road across Europe this autumn before returning home to play Brighton, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, and London in November and December.
If you are unfamiliar with Gorillaz, they are a British virtual band made up of singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccols, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. 2001 saw the debut of their acclaimed eponymous album. The BRIT and Grammy Award winning band have topped charts around the world and toured the globe picking up hundreds of millions of streams and record sales along the way.
The band’s comeback album ‘Humanz’ is made up of 14-tracks produced by Gorillaz, The Twilite Tone of D /\ P and Remi Kabaka. Recorded in London, Paris, New York, Chicago and Jamaica. Humanz has a stellar line up of featured artists which includes Jehnny Beth (Savages), RayBlk, Danny Brown, Benjamin Clementine, De La Soul, D.R.A.M., Peven Everett, Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Zebra Katz, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Popcaan, Pusha T, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis among others.
