Gorillaz is a british pop band formed in 1998, they've brought out hit songs like Clint Eastwood, Feel Good Inc, Stylo and Rock The House
... and they're making a comeback with a new album this year, the tracklist of which was leaked recently.
Seeing as they're animated, vulgar and have received international praise, I thought they'd be perfect to discuss about on Newgrounds, which is known for animations and extremely vulgar entertainment.

Feel free to discuss your own experiences with the band, your favourite songs, albums and the band members.

Pictured below: Leaked tracklist of the next album, with featured co-artists.

I suppose it's kind of what Gorillaz is meant to be, i'd really rather have Gorillaz themselves take the spotlight, but that won't stop the music from sounding good. Hallelujah Money was pretty good, even though it was 80% Benjamin Clementine.

Also: Sex Murder Party, think about how awesome that track name sounds. I hope it gets an animated video.

For the uninitiated.

Yeah, ha-ha
Finally, someone let me out of my cage
Now time for me is nothing 'cause I'm counting no age
Now I couldn't be there
Now you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs
And I'm under each snare
Intangible
Bet you didn't think so I command you to
Panoramic view
Look, I'll make it all manageable
Pick and choose
Sit and lose
All you different crews
Chicks and dudes
Who you think is really kickin' tunes?
Picture you gettin' down in a picture tube
Like you lit the fuse
You think it's fictional?
Mystical? Maybe
Spiritual
Hero who appears in you to clear your view when you're too crazy
Lifeless
To those the definition for what life is
Priceless
To you because I put you on the hype shit
You like it?
Gun smokin' righteous with one toke
You're psychic among those
Possess you with one go

Del should rap with them again.
Fun Fact: Del was underpaid for Clint Eastwood and Rock The House, so he didn't allow them to use his lyrics for any live shows until 2014 when they finally performed the song in it's purest form here.

The earlier live shows included De La Soul, Snoop Dogg and MF DOOM

I wondered why the rap was different in some of the live shows.

On Melancholy Hill had good music and good visuals, but I guess you don't like regular pop music that much.

I know a song by them that could be your type of music though.

Here's some Gorillaz news: Someone who is apparently a stage graphics designer posted the demo version of a Saturnz Barz on vimeo, but it's passworded. 30 minutes after this was discovered, r/gorillaz guessed the password.

The leak is here, and the password is 2017
Yes, that's the password they made up. Someone's getting fired, the track is FIRE also.

Aw hell yeah. I regret not getting into them sooner, since I had friends who liked them when I was 13.
Melancholy Hill remains my favourite, which I liked even back then.

So a bunch of shit went down last night, which in turn caused me to not get any sleep because I was high awake.

Someone googled "Saturnz Ringz" and found a Saturnz Barz demo on Vimeo by some guy called Dylan Byrne, who is basically a stage graphics designer. It was a private vimeo video of the song Saturnz Barz (upcoming Gorillaz title), with a stage with mannequins, which looks very much like a demo of the stage during the Demon Dayz Festival.

Someone from reddit guessed the password 5 minutes after the discovery, the password was '2017'. 2 full tracks had leaked (Saturnz Barz, Busted and Blue) and 4 bits of tracks had leaked. (Andromeda, Transmission), the tracks are copyrighted so you can't find them on YouTube, but you can find a bit of Saturnz Barz here, just before it gets taken down or muted.
The vimeo links won't work anymore, as Dylan Byrne was called about it and he deleted his entire vimeo channel.
You might find a Busted and Blue track leak somewhere (Dropbox has a few surviving samples)

This circlejerk is similiar to someone on Gorillaz Unofficial leaking the entirety of the Demon Days album a month before it came out (April 8th 2005, Demon Days came out in May)

The thing we can all take away from this is Mr. Byrne is losing his job. I ended up getting so faded that I sent @StaticSkull a drunk DM. (sorry about that by the way.)

To finish off the update, here's a piece of art by Jamie Hewlett that I could only imagine is the band member's reaction to this shit going down.
Long story short: Don't put your password as "2017"

I got their self titled album back when it came out. There are only a few songs on that album that I like. I just remember how cool I thought the music video for Clint Eastwood was and how much I liked that song. It was the sole reason I wanted that album.


It's all shits and giggles until someone giggles and shits.

The album is pretty good, but there are a few tracks that I'd rather skip (Slow Country, ew.)

Booh! It's the censored version. "FUCKING enterprise"!

Even Robyn Adele Anderson sings "fooking enterprise" in her version:

The Fall wasn't really Gorillaz. Damon just made a bunch of songs and he decided to release them as original Gorillaz stuff to profit more, called it an "Encore Album" and boom.
The album was good, but the corporate sense it gives you is a bit eh.

it always surprises me to still see people talking about Gorillaz. i remember when their first album came out and i learned that they were entirely animated. i didn't care for the songs of theirs that i heard so i wrote them off as a gimmick band like Aqua or Rednex or something, but apparently they're still going strong.

Like i said earlier in this thread, they're blur, they're a bubblegummy little kid version of blur, if you liked blur, youll like them, if not, you wont.
