The Gorillaz are gearing up to make everyone feel old by celebrating the 20th anniversary (yes it has somehow been that long, I’ve double checked) of their stunning debut album Song Machine.
Ahead of the forthcoming cinematic release, the legendary band have dropped a brand-new performance. The buzzing clip from the upcoming cinema release next week sees the band perform ‘Désolé’ featuring Malian singer-songwriter and multiple Grammy Award nominee, Fatoumata Diawara.
The band have teamed up with Trafalgar Releasing and LIVENow to announce that Gorillaz will bring their acclaimed live show to the big screen for one day only on Wednesday 8th December.
Always pushing boundaries from the get-go, they have returned for the interactive experience presenting Song Machine Live From Kong, recorded at the band’s Kong Studios HQ in London. The show will be beamed to cinemas globally via Trafalgar Releasing, along with the cinema-exclusive behind-the-scenes.
Trafalgar Releasing CEO, Marc Allenby has shared his excitement, stating: “We are delighted to be partnering with the LIVENow and Eleven Management teams to bring Gorillaz: Song Machine Live from Kong to cinemas worldwide.”
Adding: “We saw great success with Gorillaz previous cinema event Reject False Icons, and we look forward to welcoming cinema audiences to experience their outstanding live show on the big screen, with immersive surround sound and exclusive bonus.”
The show enjoys a slew of guest stars including Leee John, Georgia, Peter Hook, Kano, slowthai, Slaves, Robert Smith, and many more delivering an unmissable celebration of Gorillaz music, including a nice treat for What We Do In the Shadows fans with the musical Matt Berry playing a part in the whirlwind proceedings.
