Gorillaz To Play Outside Lands Fest
By JOHN DALY
Gorillaz have released a new dance track from their latest album Humanz, called “Strobelite.”
Directed by Stoke native and Murdoc Niccals’ acolyte Raoul Skinbeck, the “Strobelite” video features Peven Everett along with band members 2D, Noodle, Murdoc and Russel Hobbs smashing it on a night out at an infamous London hotspot.
Skinbeck, a longtime acquaintance of Niccals, has a long and illustrious career in producing TV ads for a local double glazing company based in Stoke on Trent and Murdoc thought he’d be rather good at making pop videos.
A remix of Strobelite by producer Kaytranada is set to land this month.
Also coming in time for Notting Hill Carnival is a dancehall remix of Saturnz Barz by Cadenza, featuring all new verses from Mad Cobra, Assassin, Kila P and Teddy Bruckshot in addition to original vocals by Popcaan and Damon Albarn.
Gorillaz live show has received a strong response. The band headlined the inaugural Demon Dayz festival in Margate earlier this summer and most recently opened their Humanz world tour across sold out dates in the US.
