The English virtual band Gorillaz was created in 1998 by Damon Albarn, singer in Blur, and the comic book artist from Tank Girl, Jamie Hewlett. The band’s got four fictional members, but in fact, Gorillaz is a collaboration between various musicians from different genres with Albarn being the only permanent musician and Hewlett their master puppeteer.
Since the beginning Gorillaz has made numerous successes, one of them being entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful virtual band.
Now the band is back with a new album – Plastic Beach, which is due to be released in the UK on 8th of March and here in the Nordics on 10th of March. But already today you can listen to the new single ‘Stylo’ or see the freshly released video on You Tube. I just saw the video and it’s got really cool effects as usual. Follow the group of four in a high speed car chase and see what unfortunate event happens to poor Cyborg Noodle in the new vid.
