The toons collect photo snippets from their history

Gorillaz have unveiled details of a new autobiography charting the history of the band.

‘Rise Of The Ogre’ follows the cartoon outfit’s antics through their eyes – from the release of their first EP ‘Tomorrow Comes Today’ in November 2000 right through to their recent show at New York‘s Harlem Apollo.

The illustrated 300-page autobiography also contains shots from the band’s personal photo albums, along with unseen backstage footage.

The book, which is out on October 26, precedes their new DVD ‘Phase Two – Slowboat To Hades’, which is released four days later.

As previously reported on NME.COM, the DVD collects the group’s videos, performances and short animated films that accompanied their second album, 2005’s ‘Demon Days’.

There is also an interview with the animated band member Noodle plus layouts of the Gorillaz home from their website, along with a series of games that appeared on www.gorillaz.com.
