Published Oct 21, 2016With all signs pointing towards the arrival of a new album, Gorillaz have now shared The Book of Murdoc to go alongside The Book of Noodle and The Book of Russel.
Focusing on Murdoc Niccals, the latest story from the band sees the band member leave Plastic Beach after a pirate attack, fleeing on his own in a rusty submarine. Packing only a crate of rum and cyborg version of his bandmate Noodle, Murdoc remained safely below the waves until his supply of booze ran out.
Upon surfacing, he encountered a fleet of steel ships sent by record label EMI. Taken hostage by the label, he was jailed for three years and was freed upon agreeing to write a new Gorillaz album.
See the whole saga of The Book of Murdoc unfold in the photos and videos below.
As previously reported, the upcoming Gorillaz album is rumoured to feature collaborations with artists like Jean Michel-Jarre, Twilite Tone, Liam Bailey and Vic Mensa. Back in July, Damon Albarn confirmed that the LP would be arrive "fairly soon," though we think a taste of what's to come could surface as early as this weekend.
