Final Run of North American THE NOW NOW Tour Dates Begins October 8 in Toronto
Demon Dayz LA Festival October 20 in Los Angeles
Gorillaz have shared a new music video for Tranz, taken from their acclaimed album ‘The Now Now’ out now on Warner Bros. Records.
Marking the characters’ first ever live performance video and first live performance since 2010’s unforgettable MTV EMA performance, this eye-popping film sees Gorillaz vocalist 2D command the stage against a backdrop of mind-altering visuals alongside bandmates Noodle and Russel Hobbs, with GangreenGang’s Ace on bass standing in for the incarcerated Murdoc Niccals.
The transformative ‘Tranz’ clip is directed by Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett and co- director Nicos Livesey, with support from the extraordinary animation specialists Blinkink and Paris-based creative production powerhouse Eddy and combines classic hand-held animation, stop-frame needlework and claymation for a wavy ride.
Following a summer of exceptional live festival dates across the UK and Europe, Gorillaz are now gearing up for The Now Now tour’s final run of North American dates, which will include their very own Demon Dayz LA Festival in Los Angeles on 20th October. The festival, curated by Damon Albarn & Jamie Hewlett, will see the band joined onstage by special guests including De La Soul, Peven Everett, Jamie Principle and Del The Funky Homosapien. Other artists confirmed to perform at the festival include Erykah Badu, The Internet, D.R.A.M, Little Simz and more, info here.
