Gorillaz and Z2 Comics Announce “Gorillaz Almanac”
The band celebrates twenty years with a new hardcover book out October 16.
Gorillaz have been firing on all media cylinders lately—although they haven’t put out an album in nearly two years, the Damon Albarn–led project jumped back into the spotlight last November with their Reject False Icons doc, following that up with a series of episodic, guest-loaded singles comprising their Song Machine project for which Albarn and an animated bandmate shared the Kimmel! stage last week.
The latest from the Gorillaz camp is a brand new hardcover anthology of the project spanning the group’s twenty-year history. The Gorillaz Almanac, set to be released in October, will include exclusive artwork, puzzles, games, and promised cameos from the band’s collaborators across the book’s one hundred and twenty pages.
For true fans, they’re offering a deluxe edition limited to 6,666 copies (“at Murdoc’s request”) that will include a CD comprised of all the tracks from season one of Song Machine, among other perks. For true true fans, there’s an already-sold-out “super deluxe” edition limited to two hundred copies, signed by Jamie Hewlett, that they’re “bending the laws of printing science to design.”
