Gorillaz, the self-proclaimed "world's most successful virtual act," will grace Tokyo with a pair of concerts next week that will include the world premiere of new album "The Now Now," which comes out June 29.

The brainchild of Blur frontman Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz broke onto the scene with a self-titled album in 2001 that featured the singles "Clint Eastwood" and "19-2000." That full-length was followed up by the critically acclaimed "Demon Days" in 2005 ("Feel Good Inc.," "Dare"), "Plastic Beach" and "The Fall" in 2010 and last year's "Humanz."

The first of the band's two Japan shows will be on June 21 and will feature guest appearances by De La Soul, Bootie Brown, Pevan Everett and Jamie Principle, as well as songs from the band's previous albums. On June 22, Gorillaz will debut "The Now Now."
