Jamie Hewlett Confirms The Return Of Gorillaz

Months after Damon Albarn hinted at a possible return of his beloved group Gorillaz, co-founder Jamie Hewlett has confirmed that the band’s hiatus is coming to an end.

Hewlett dropped the news in a series of Instagram posts depicting new drawings of the group’s famed cartoon characters Murdoch and Noodle. Hewlett accompanied the illustrations with a simple statement: “Yes, Gorillaz Returns.” While Albarn mentioned the possibility of a 2016 release, no official date for a new album has been set. The record would be the fifth full-length album from Gorillaz, serving as the follow-up to their 2011 LP The Fall. Check out the photos below.
