Gorillaz co-founders Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have revealed that the band’s future is far from certain. During a recent interview with Australia’s The Age, the pair stated that they have both considered ending the band while they’re still on top. “We always think that when we get to a point where we’ve achieved something, it’s time to stop. I couldn’t keep going at this size and pace,” Albarn says in the interview. Hewlett chimed in to say that this “would be a wonderful point to leave Gorillaz . . . at the end of this tour.” He was quick to add that the comment was “not a statement.” According to Albarn the band will certainly scale down their tours if they do, in fact, continue. He adds that they’ll assess the band’s future after they wrap up their current tour. “This tour, with these people, is a one-off. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We’ll never repeat this,” he says. “We’ll see how we feel in January. [After] a period of reflection and sobriety.”
