Because I Can’t Stop Writing About the Gorillaz: They Now Have an Augmented Reality App

+

The Gorillaz basically disappeared for the last seven years, but now it feels like I’m writing something new about them everyday. Oh wait, that’s because I am. In the last three weeks alone, the band has announced the news of their upcoming album, released five tracks from it, revealed their plans for a TV show, and launched a series of haunted houses across the world. If that weren’t enough, they’ve now decided to drop an app. The augmented reality game brings you inside the world of Russel, Murdoc and Noodle through a mix of 360 and virtual reality that superimposes elements from the band’s music videos with visuals from users’ real lives. That’s already super fucking cool, but the app will also serve as the largest geo listening experience in the world, allowing users to preview Humanz through an exclusive invite.

So, what are you doing? Download it now. And if you’re one of the, like 2 people, who has an Android—don’t feel left out. You can download it, too. And while you wait for it to load, watch the teaser, below.
