Something big is coming from Gorillaz: Is this the animated band’s long-awaited return?

In the last day, the iconic animated band Gorillaz has discovered Instagram in a major way. At 66 posts and counting, it’s been an exciting 24 hours for fans.

The feed seems to display some sort of chronological summary of the group’s career to date, starting with their debut release in 2000 and extending all the way to well, today.

The stream of images, videos and text posts show 2D, Murloc, Noodle and Russel throughout important moments in their career including the release of Demon Days, their acceptance speech at the Grammys and rare, obscured live performances.

As of the time of this article, the post below is the latest on their feed:
