Two decades ago, Gorillaz changed the rock landscape with their electro-tinged music and virtual avatars. Now, the band's celebrating its self-titled debut album's 20th anniversary with a massive reissue.

The massive box set will contain more than four hours of music, including previously unreleased demos, “G-sides,” a recording of the virtual group’s 2001 performance at The Forum, and a remix album titled Laika Come Home. It's housed in a folio-style hardback book branded with the band's logo that features a cache of 27 pages of "seized" original drawings, storyboards and internal DMC paperwork, as well as two Polaroid-style mugshots.

The First edition of the 8xLP vinyl box set comes out on December 10 and can be pre-ordered here, with a larger release arriving next fall.

“Whistles have been blown. Truths have come to light,” said drummer Russel Hobbs in a statement. “What started out as a trip down memory lane took a damn sideways turn into the heart of darkness. They say the past is another country. Turns out, it’s a whole other dimension.”
