Gorillaz are back to further solidify their indelible track record for eye popping visuals with a trippy new music video for “Tranz.” The slithering synth-rock is a surefire standout from their recently released LP, The Now Now. As expected, the animated outfit show up to show out in the track’s colorful new video.

The clip opens with the band set up on a digital stage, with a flickering gray and black backdrop. As the band jams on, the colors begin bleeding more and more into the backdrop — infiltrating the entire video. Before long, an explosion of psychedelics is drowning everything in sight. Mushrooms, zombies, band frontman 2D shooting light beams out of his eyes; the trippy factor begins amping up quickly, and never lets up. The effect is trance-like and immersive, with a hefty dose that classic cheeky Gorillaz flair.

The group kicks off their last run of North American tour dates in support of the album in Toronto on October 8. Notable amidst that last blast is the band’s own Demon Dayz festival in Los Angeles alongside Erykah BaduDRAM, and more.

Although Gorillaz’ latest album The Now Now was released just this past June, it appears that the animated band is already gearing up to release something new. In a new interview with the Radio FM4 podcast, frontman Damon Albarn revealed the band already has another new album in the works, confirming a revelation Albarn alluded to earlier this year.

“I have another one as well, but I know I’m not gonna be allowed to even think about recording or putting it out this year. In October, after I play in America, I’ll be starting The Good, The Bad & The Queen again…it’s there. If I get the time, or if anyone wants it, it’s there.”

The upcoming LP would be the Gorillaz’ seventh studio album and would follow another release with The Good, The Bad & The Queen — Albarn’s supergroup with the Clash’s Paul Simonon, the Verve’s Simon Tong, and Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen.

Gorillaz‘ frontman Damon Albarn seems to only be interested in outdoing himself at this point.

He’s on a prolific hot streak, releasing two Gorillaz albums in the span of the last year. Now, Albarn’s made it clear that he has no plans to slow down, either, with the announcement that his supergroup,  The Good The Bad & The Queen, will release their long-awaited sophomore album “by the end of the year.”

“I’m on tour in Europe doing festivals, but I’m coming home in between them [to finish the record],” he told Kyle Meredith at Consequence of Sound. “I’m working all weekend doing festivals and then come home Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday — that should be a weekend. But because I’ve stupidly started and want to make this record right, I don’t have any weekends,” Albarn quipped.

The Good, The Bad & The Queen, features a venerable cast of musicians that includes The Clash’s Paul Simonon, The Verve’s Simon Tong, and Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen. The band released their last and only album back in 2007.

DJ Koze brings the funk in fresh new take on Gorillaz’ ‘Humility’

DJ Koze brings the funk in fresh new take on Gorillaz’ ‘Humility’Gorillaz With Ace

DJ Koze‘s reemergence from secluded island life yielded one of the most danceable albums of the year thus far.

Knock Knock flows seamlessly. Like a DJ set, the album’s a resounding collection of enigmatic stylings. Hip-hop reigns, vocalists are victorious, and energy’s at new heights, but what’s perhaps most interesting about Koze’s newest work is its integration of different forms. It’s a snapshot of contemporary dance’s coming and goings, so it makes sense then that DJ Koze would take on remixing fellow curators of past and present innovation, Gorillaz.

Koze has reworked one of the digital band’s most recent highlights from their newly released LP, The Now Now, taking on the dreamy “Humility,” offering an immensely laid back take on the record which humbly calls for it to be put on endless rotation. Giving Gorillaz’ “Humility” a placatingly psychedelic spin, Koze proves to be a complementary match to Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s synth-pop stylings.
