More on Gorillaz

Gorillaz released a documentary Reject False Icons back in December that details the bands’ success, studio life and the artists they’ve collabed with in the past. Prior to the documentary the band also released their latest 2018 LP, The Now Now.

The brains behind the documentary is Denholm Hewlett, the son of illustrator and Gorillaz’ visual creator, Jamie Hewlett. Denholm Hewlett followed the band vigorously for three years and covered the intense process of what it took to make Humanz and The Now Now. Check out the trailer below.


With the tease of a new single, there is a chance that a new album could be in the works, which means 2020 could be a busy year for our favorite cartoon band.
