Gorillaz is bringing Cracker Island to a city near you. The animated group, with lead vocals from Blur member Damon Albarn, announced The Getaway Shows, where they’ll hit Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, and Boston in September. Supporting acts for the concerts include Kaytranada, Lil Yachty, and Remi Wolf.
Two weeks ago, Kaytranada dropped the Aminé-assisted album Kaytraminé, led by singles “4eva” and “Rebuke.” In January, Yachty dropped his fifth studio album, Let’s Start Here, with features from Teezo Touchdown, Justine Skye, Fousheé, Ant Clemons, Nick Hakim, Daniel Caesar, and more.
In February, Gorillaz released their eighth studio album Cracker Island, with appearances from Thundercat (“Cracker Island”), Tame Impala and Bootie Brown (“New Gold”), Bad Bunny (“Tormenta”), and a posthumous verse from Trugoy the Dove from De La Soul (“Crocadillaz”). In April, Auburn performed a star-studded Gorillaz set alongside special guests Bad Bunny, De La Soul, Yasiin Bey, Little Simz, Thundercat, and more.
Following Cracker Island, earlier this month, Albarn announced the first Blur album in eight years. Titled The Ballad of Darren, Albarn called it “an aftershock record, reflection and comment on where we find ourselves now.”
In other Gorillaz news, Netflix pulled the plug on the group’s planned film due to downsizing their animation division.
