Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett created the Gorillaz back in 1998. According to their Facebook page bio: "Gorillaz is the most successful virtual band ever, fronted by four wildly talented but totally disparate characters: pretty-but-vacant singer 2D, satanic bassist Murdoc Niccals, Japanese guitar prodigy Noodle and amiable man-mountain drummer Russel Hobbs."
Back in 2000, the band released their critically acclaimed debut album and their single "Clint Eastwood" was an instant hit. That single, amongst others, led the band to massive fame and 5 years later, the band released their second album with 'Demon Days.' That album had such massive hits like "Feel Good Inc.," "DARE" and "Dirty Harry."
And ever since 2005, the band sort of went silent. But the silence officially came to an amazing end earlier this year when the Gorillaz announced their own festival Demon Dayz! And since that epic announcement, the guys also announced their album 'Humanz,' which was officially released April 27th featuring Pusha T, Vince Staples, D.R.A.M. and much more!
Since the album, the band has revealed some big news such as their own 10 Episode Animated TV Series set to premiere in 2018. The band also announced the lineup for their upcoming Demon Dayz Festival Ft. Vince Staples, De La Soul and more set to take place this weekend.
And now today, the Gorillaz have surprised fans around the world by releasing their new single "Sleeping Powder." Not only have they dropped a new song, but they also have released the psychedelic music video for the tune. The video starts off with the famous 1987 'This Is Your Brain on Drugs' anti-drug campaign, which leads into a very trippy experience. So check out the music video below and stay posted here for any more news from the Gorillaz!
