It was previously reported that Gorillaz were set to announce a US leg of their Demon Dayz festival in Chicago. It’s not currently known whether this Chicago date will in fact be that.

In March, the band announced their own Demon Dayz festival in the UK, which is taking place at Kent theme park Dreamland in Margate on June 10. The full line-up is still to be announced but Damon Albarn has hinted that Noel Gallagher, Graham Coxon and more will appear live with the band.

So far, Gorillaz have shared from their new album a Pusha T and Mavis Staples collaboration called ‘Let Me Out’m as well as four other songs: ‘Saturnz Barz’, ‘Andromeda’, ‘We Got The Power’ and ‘Ascension’. Read NME‘s reviews of those latter tracks.
