Gorillaz is a British virtual band, consisting of four animated band members: 2-D (lead vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar and vocals), Noodle (guitar, keyboards, and vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion). The brainchild of British singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer and Blur frontman Damon Albarn and Tank Girl comic book artist, designer, and director Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz was formed in London in 1998. 2001 saw the release of the band's debut album, Gorillaz, which sold over seven million copies and earned them an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band. The follow-up, Demon Days (2005), was certified five times platinum in the UK and double platinum in the US. Gorillaz have earned many awards and nominations over the years: they won one Grammy Award, two MTV Video Music Awards, an NME Award, three MTV Europe Music Awards, and have been nominated for nine Brit Awards, as well as the Mercury Prize, although the nomination was later withdrawn at the band's request.
