Gorillaz Have Joined Insta And They’re Clearly Teasin’ Something Major

Gorillaz, your favourite virtual band made up of cartoon ape-men and helmed by Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn, have been teasing a new release for some time now. Last year they announced plans to re-enter the studio, and footage surfaced of them doing just that. News emerged that names like De La Soul and Snoop Dogg had recorded seshes for a new album.

Now they’ve opened an Instagram for the first time, which is rolling out a retrospective  of the music they’ve done in the past. The comments are a good, pure space of people losing their freakin’ minds.

They finished up with a tweet reading THE END and “until next time”, which freaked people out. They assumed it was a weird way of announcing that the band had broken up, which is almost certainly not true. Nobody sets up a social media campaign to just piss fans off like that, it’s not particularly good for business.

Regardless of what goes down, it’s unlikely that we’ll be seeing a new album ’til next year. Hewlett said last year that the new album is “really fuckin special” album “can’t be rushed”. But maybe he’s wrong. Something is being teased here.
