Ahhh I've had to say this so many times. There's been about three "Gorillaz are breaking up" instances in the past year and a half, I doubt anything will actually go down, they're just taking a break. Maybe in a few years they'll be back with a new album. All the albums had a 4-5 year break between them. This is from Gorillaz-Unofficial on what Jamie had to say about it.
- Gorillaz has "run its course for now, it doesn't mean it's packed away for good", though if the two collaborate again he would like it to be on something "completely different". There are projects that they worked on between Gorillaz albums which never saw the light of day that he thinks could be dusted off in the future.
- About Damon, he says "We've been inseparable for a long time, and sometimes it's good to have a break. We haven't fallen out, I just want to do some of my own stuff, and Damon has many projects – he's always doing 10 things at once – so it's all right to separate for a bit and try different things."
- He is taking a "couple of years off" and is mainly learning to paint in oils and writing, living in France with his new wife Emma De Caunes.
lol, I read the article as well. I just don't really think there's such a high possibility of them returning to make "Gorillaz" music together. I'm sure they'll still make music, but Damon is more focused on Blur, and Jamie was kind of upset about it. It didn't seem like a "sound" interview to me.
