2D, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and Noodle are back. In Gorillaz’s first show since 2010, Demon Dayz, titled after Gorillaz’s platinum album of the same name, will take place at Dreamland Margate in England on June 10, according to a report by Independent.co.uk’s Jack Shepherd.
Admission to the festival, with ticket prices starting at £60 (roughly $73), will also include free admission and use of Dreamland Margate.
Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, the people behind the virtual band, have been teasing new music with video clips on Instagram and updated social-media profiles; however, according to an Instagram post in June 2016, Hewlett said that the process cannot be rushed and that there has been no set release date for the new album.
