The animated rap group the Gorillaz dropped four new videos on YouTube this week in the lead up to their album release on April 28.

And it appears the cartoon band may be from Michigan, because in one of the videos, a Michigan plate is clearly visible on their car.

Damon Albarn, the former Blur musician, and his friend Jamie Hewlett, an accomplished video artist, created the 2D band Gorillaz in 2000, and had a couple of hits with the band, most notably 'Clint Eastwood' and 'Feel Good Inc.'.

The band went into hiatus for a time, and there's been a new album rumored for years. Now Albarn says the new album, Humanz' will drop on April 28, and posted four new videos on line Thursday to prove it.

One of the videos, 'Saturnz Burnz', features the group tripping through an abandoned house in what appears to be Detroit. We know this because the car the group drives up in has Michigan license plates, which are clearly visible at the beginning and the end of the video.


'Humanz' is the band's first release in close to six years, and features an impressive list of guest artists, including Grace Jones, De La Soul, Vince Staples, Pusha T, Mavis Staples, Anthony Hamilton and more.
