Toward the end of 2019, the Gorillaz released a film titled Reject False Icons. The film is a complete exploration of their recording and following tour of their album Humanz.
The virtual band, a brainchild of comic book artist Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl) and Blur front man Damon Albarn now features an amalgamation of fantastic musicians who swap in and out playing out a skewed version of their respective Gorillaz avatar.
Now, this was released in theaters and was really great to see, hear and experience in theaters. That being said, it’s now available to watch in full over the course of three acts just below.
In his debut feature, director Denholm Hewlett followed the band’s every move for three years, covering the making of two critically acclaimed albums, ‘Humanz’ and ‘The Now Now’, as well as the band’s most ambitious world tour to date encompassing dates across Europe, North America, South America and Mexico, bookended by its own Demon Dayz Festivals in the UK and US. The result is the first ever all-access immersive journey into the world of Gorillaz and its extended family – featuring never-seen footage, where the virtual meets the real – to capture the wondrous chaos of life under the watchful eye of Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and 2D (vocals).
