The Now Now is the latest all new studio album from the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act*. Produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, it was recorded entirely this February at Studio 13, London and is set for release June 29th on Warner Bros. Records.
In other Gorillaz news, the band recently confirmed the musical lineup of Demon Dayz LA, the inaugural U.S. staging of their Demon Dayz festival, taking place Saturday, October 20th at Pico Rivera Sports Arena & Grounds in Los Angeles.
Headlined by Gorillaz’ only west coast appearance of 2018 and featuring special guests Erykah Badu, The Internet, DRAM and more, Demon Dayz LA promises an experience like no other: Two stages worth of special guests and collaborators from within and beyond the Gorillaz extended family, plus an assortment of surprises, attractions, exclusive merchandise and more—all combining to create an auditory, visual and physical version of the Gorillaz universe for fans to explore.
Demon Dayz LA arrives at the close of the North American leg of The Now Now Tour, which kicks off October 8th in Toronto, and makes stops in Montreal, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and Chicago.
And back in the UK, Gorillaz lynchpin Murdoc Niccals–currently incarcerated at London’s Wormwood Scrubs—has launched an ingenious plan to enlist loyal fans in the #freemurdoc campaign to assist his efforts in gathering information behind his false imprisonment for smuggling… With the help of a multi-platform chatbot, concerned fans around the world can converse with Murdoc – via voice or text – to hear from the man himself on what exactly they can do to help him break out of prison to restore his rightful place in the band, alongside 2D, Noodle and Russel.
Notes to Editors:
Virtual group Gorillaz is singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals (whose temporary replacement Ace plays on The Now Now album and tour), guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs.
