GORILLAZ released their long-awaited Humanz album last year and toured the UK at the end of 2017. The band won the award for Best British Group at the BRIT Awards 2018 . But what else do we know about them? Who are Gorillaz? Gorillaz were formed in 1998 by the Blur frontman and acclaimed solo artist Damon Albarn, and graphic artist Jamie Hewlett.

FOR their third album Brighton duo Royal Blood “brought the tour bus party to the record” changing their heavy rock to a more groove and disco-influenced sound. But for singer and bassist ro it also marked the realisation that his own partying had to stop. He had to kick the alcohol and drugs that were taking over his life. Explaining how he chose his music instead of them, he says: “Two years ago, I had a moment of clarity, where I realised that to make this third album the best we’ve ever made meant it was one or the other.
