Gorillaz Free Xmas Album Called The FallDamon Albarn has revealed that the new Gorillaz album available as a "free" download* on Christmas Day will be called The Fall. Albarn revealed the title of the album during an interview with Sydney, Australia radio station Triple J.

The album was recorded in hotel rooms on Albarn’s iPad during the Gorillaz tour of the US in October. "I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad," Albarn said in November.

The new record is named after the autumn season in which it was written. "I wrote it in October," he explained. "I didn't want to call it October because U2 had already used that. Although I like the word October, I like the month, I like the feeling."

Albarn will make a video of a track from The Fall available through an advent calendar on the band's website on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning the entire album will be offered as a free download* – for one day only.

Albarn confirmed that Gorillaz is taking a break following the completion of its world tour which ends in New Zealand on December 21, in time for the festive holidays. "I'm putting [Gorillaz] back in a box for a while," he said. "Just putting it back on the shelf."

Any subsequent iPad Gorillaz album may be called Christmas Vacation.

"I don't consider our songs to be growers that take ten listens to get into," Frontman Justin Young said. "People will either like us or they won't, it's that simple." The band is called The Vaccines. It's Jay Jay Pistolet and Freddie Cowan, younger brother of Tom from The Horrors. The Vaccines' tracks are short - similar to American Hardcore punk - but played in the style of good, old-fashioned Rock'n'Roll. In fact, the music's so retro, it's Pop. It's like listening to the Ramones, The Beach Boys, and The Shadows, all playing with the distorted guitars of The Jesus and Mary Chain.

This London band only played its first-ever show two months ago and just released its debut single, but will make its American debut headling Bowery Ballroom, New York on January 20 and then play Glasslands two days later. In October, the Vaccines played their first London concert. An audience of nearly three hundred included Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Marcus Mumford, members of White Lies and The Maccabees, and a few journalists. More than two hundred were locked outside, including some of the band's friends and Nick Hodgson of the Kaiser Chiefs.

"On the strength of just a demo and a soon-to-be-released debut single, nearly 300 people have turned up for the Vaccines' first hometown gig [Flowerpot, London]; another 200 have had to be turned away," Betty Clarke reported in the Guardian.
