The virtual band’s feature film will run for one night only
Gorillaz, as a band that essentially don’t exist beyond virtual avatars – the brainchild of Damon Albarn and the artist Jamie Hewlett – have always commanded a healthy dose of intrigue. Now, a feature length film is set to pull back the curtain on their time in the studio and on tour.
The band announced the documentary, titled Reject False Icons, on social media this week, along with a poster and release date (December 16).
Apparently, the film will document “the band’s every move for three years” and, since it’s directed by Denholm Hewlett, the Gorillaz co-creator’s son, we can expect it to be pretty intimate. It will also offer fans insight into the band’s collaborations, with appearances from Pusha-T, Vince Staples, Kelela, Danny Brown, Noel Gallagher, and more.
You’d better get your tickets soon though, because the film will apparently only show for a single night. (Whether it will hit streaming services afterwards is unconfirmed.) Tickets go on sale November 27, so be ready.
