This isn't the first time that the boys have had a fall out. Back in 2010 Hewlett felt that his visuals were no longer a central part of their performance.
"The music and the videos weren't working as well together, but I felt we'd made a really good record, and I was into it. So we went and played it," Albarn stated.
Four albums have been released under the Gorillaz project since its inception, back in 1997, with the latest single being "DoYaThing." As for Blur, they will deband after their gig at Hyde Park for the closing of the 2012 London Olympics.
