Quick News

Australian pop rockers Architecture in Helsinki will release their new album, Now + 4EVA on April 1.

Damon Albarn was recently asked by Rolling Stone if Gorillaz would be releasing new music. Albarn, who will be touring this Spring and Summer in support of his solo LP, Everyday Robots, said, "Apart from the visuals, I am Gorillaz. I am the recording when it comes to Gorillaz. It's complicated since it's just me. Just because I was a cartoon. . .There's no difference, really. . .It's a bit embarrassing for me to say 'yes' or 'no' about stuff that's my stuff anyway. I just don't see it like that. I've been playing Gorillaz songs in rehearsal and some of them sound really fresh, so I'll definitely be playing them on my tour. What makes Gorillaz? We always have different musicians when we play live. The only constant thing, I suppose, is myself. And I'm still here. Is my new album, in a way, a Gorillaz record? It's not, but that sounds. . .I've dug myself into an enormous hole now, haven't I? Sorry."
