Gorillaz announces new clothing, accessories collection

In celebration of Gorillaz’ September 16th headline set at the Meadows Music & Arts Festival at New York’s Citi Field, G Foot — the new collection of clothing and accessories designed by Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett —will be setting up a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pop-up store September 14th and 15th at 560 Grand St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn from 5-10 pm both nights.

The G Foot pop-up store experience will allow fans exclusive access to clothes and accessories not available anywhere else, taking Gorillaz offline and into the streets.

Among the exclusive items on sale at the G Foot pop-up will be a limited edition Gorillaz New York T-shirt created exclusively for the store and available only as long as quantities last during the store’s two-day run.

The multi-piece G Foot capsule collection showcases the iconic style created by Hewlett to take Gorillaz band members 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and Noodle into the real world, and encompasses classic pieces including X and Y.

“G Foot is a post-skate wear collection reminiscent of class acts like Silas, Eley Kishimoto or Laurence Airline,” says G Foot Creative Director Remi Kabaka. “Positive vibrant brands, with no shame in their game.”

The G Foot collection is available at an affordable price range and includes brand new, limited edition items alongside pieces only previously available to fans at Gorillaz shows.

The Gorillaz Meadows headline performance kicks off the next leg of the Humanz Tour that began its sold-out North American run July 8th in Chicago. The tour has played Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco and more to the largest and most enthusiastic U.S. crowds Gorillaz has seen to date—and critical response has been equally enthusiastic.

Humanz was released April 28th on Warner Bros. to widespread critical acclaim, reaching No. 1 and No. 2 in the U.S. and U.K. album charts respectively, and topping the iTunes chart in 60 plus countries around the world. The 14-track album is available on standard CD, vinyl and as a digital download, as well as a 19-track 2 CD Deluxe. A limited edition Super Deluxe Vinyl Box Set featuring new and previously unreleased ‘b-sides’ / alternate versions of album tracks, is coming November 17th.

Produced by Gorillaz, The Twilite Tone of D /\ P and Remi Kabaka and recorded in London, Paris, New York, Chicago and Jamaica, Humanz comes seven years on from the release of albums, The Fall and Plastic Beach. Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and 2D (vocals) are – as always – joined by a stellar line up of featured artists which includes Jehnny Beth (Savages), Danny Brown, Benjamin Clementine, De La Soul, D.R.A.M., Peven Everett, Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Zebra Katz, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Popcaan, Pusha T, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis among others.
