Demon Days is the second studio album by British virtual band Gorillaz, released in May 2005. The album features contributions from De La Soul, Neneh Cherry, Martina Topley-Bird, Roots Manuva, MF DOOM, Ike Turner, Bootie Brown of the Pharcyde, Shaun Ryder, Dennis Hopper, the London Community Gospel Choir and the Children's Choir of San Fernandez.
Demon Days entered the UK charts at #1 and the U.S. charts at #6, outperforming the band's 2001 debut, Gorillaz. The album has sold six million copies worldwide. The album features the singles "Feel Good Inc.", "Dare", "Dirty Harry" and "Kids with Guns"/"El Mañana".
Much like 2001's Gorillaz, the release of Demon Days and its respective tour were accompanied by various multimedia. These included interactive features on the Gorillaz website, a total of four animated music videos, virtual interview sessions with the band, and animatics for each song. Almost all of the visuals associated with the album were designed by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett as his design company, Zombie Flesh Eaters.
While Jamie Hewlett was working with his team on a script for a possible Gorillaz movie, Damon Albarn was still recording Think Tank with Blur. By
