2011 release from Damon Alburn and Co. Over 32 days on their 2010 North American Tour the Gorillaz recorded a musical diary titled The Fall which was made available to their fanclub as a Christmas gift. The 15-track sonic journal follows up their Gold album Plastic Beach which made numerous 'best of' lists for 2010 and a sellout stadium tour which blew audiences and critics away.
Five years on from the release of Demon Days, Murdoc Niccals and co. return with Plastic Beach. The band have taken up residence, recording on a secret floating island deep in the South Pacific, a Plastic Beach HQ, made up of the detritus, debris and washed up remnants of humanity. This Plastic Beach is the furthest point from any landmass on Earth; the most deserted spot on the planet.
The world s biggest animated band, Gorillaz formed in 1998, and have since sold 12 million copies over two albums Gorillaz (2000) and Demon Days (2005). They have hit number 1 in more than a dozen countries and picked up awards including Grammys, Novellos, VMAs and EMAs.
GORILLAZ CELEBRATE A DECADE WITH NEW SINGLES COLLECTION
The Singles Collection: 2001-2011, the career-spanning best of from Gorillaz, will be released on EMI s Virgin Records.
A 15-track collection of the band s singles, videos and remixes, The Singles Collection: 2001-2011 celebrates 10 years of audio visual innovation and three studio albums from the most successful virtual band in the world ever. The Singles Collection will be released as a standard CD, CD and DVD and 140 gram vinyl. A special edition import-only 7 box set will also be made available.
Formed in 1998, the band released their revolutionary debut album Gorillaz in 2001. The launch had many industry detractors who saw the idea of an animated pop group as merely folly and gimmick but the album went on to sell 6 million copies around the world. The hugely successful campaign took its toll on Gorillaz. As guitar-playing wunderkind Noodle noted sadly Every great band is destroyed by their success. Cartoon bands are no exception." Despite this, she wrestled the band back together for the release of second album Demon Days in 2005 and a run of groundbreaking animated live shows at Manchester International Festival and Harlem s Apollo Theater. In early 2010 Gorillaz resurfaced again this time from an island in the South Pacific with the album Plastic Beach. The lead single Stylo featured a bad ass Bruce Willis chasing down our intrepid Gorillaz who made a clean escape and headed out on their first World Tour with a crack team of musicians including Clash greats Paul Simonon and Mick Jones.
In ten years, Gorillaz didn t just top charts around the world, hit number 1 in more than a dozen countries and garner sales in excess of 13 million, they received influential awards and recognition that represented the band s significance beyond their music. Alongside a Grammy and an Ivor Novello, Gorillaz were nominated for four CAD awards and took home the coveted Webby Award for Artist of The Year 2006, plus the Jim Henson Award for Creativity. In 2006 Jamie Hewlett was awarded Designer of the Year for his work on Gorillaz; four years later the band graced the cover of tech bible WIRED magazine.
Always open to an interesting collaboration, Gorillaz have worked with numerous artists including Danger Mouse, Ibrahim Ferrer, Del the Funkee Homosapien, De La Soul, Kano, Bobby Womack, Ike Turner, Lou Reed, Mark E Smith, Bootie Brown, Tina Weymouth, Bashy, Little Dragon, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Snoop Dogg, Dan The Automator, Mos Def, D12, Phi Life Cypher, MF Doom, Rosie Wilson, Shaun Ryder and Neneh Cherry.

Two CD set. While Gorillaz take a well-earned break from global domination, the menials at Kong Studios have been hard at work. As 2D finishes his law degree and Russel reinvents himself as a personal trainer, the glorious ephemera from the last phase of their musical career has been swept up, gathered together and pickled in plastic for music fans everywhere. D-Sides sees the B-sides from Gorillaz' multi-platinum selling second album Demon Days, along with early demos and previously unreleased tracks collected together for the first time. Highlights include Gorillaz' dubbed-out collaboration with The Bees, 'Bill Murray', and the apocalyptic scum-pop of 'We Are Happy Landfill'.
