Jamie comments on future of Gorillaz at Monkey NYC event

Damon and Jamie's opera Monkey is having a run in New York City from July 6 to July 28. All ticketing and event information is available through the Facebook page here.

Yesterday Jamie made a personal appearance at the Lincoln Center to promote the show, and Gorillaz fan TwoDent23 was there, recording Jamie's comment about the future of Gorillaz and passing it on to us.

Jamie said: ""There's also a five years gap between the albums because they take a long time to do and- and they're very exhausting and when you're finished you feel like you need to go do other stuff. So Damon's touring with Blur- hes doing a world tour with Blur at the moment and then they're working on a new album so there isn't really time for him, and I'm doing other stuff as well. So I think it's, um, we'll come back to it when the time's right. But also the music industry's changed so much since we started doing Gorillaz. There's no money- in the industry so you know you get these amazing new bands, like the Stripes from Ireland, kind of fourteen years old, you know, the best rhythm blues guitarist you've ever seen. Age fourteen, make songs and film it in their bedroom. It doesn't cost anything, and so Gorillaz is kind of expensive. It's expensive to do because it's animated. ...(the interviewer mentions how they cant age, they can reunite whenever)... So there's plenty of time basically."
