The on-again, off-again rumors can officially be put to a rest: Gorillaz (Virgin Records) are not breaking up, a publicist for the group says.

The rumors of a Gorillaz split go back to last year when the band was on tour. At that point, Damon Albarn told the Toronto Sun that the group may call it quits at the end of their tour.

That rumor was “confirmed” last week in an article in People Magazine that said the group had “sensationally split.”

Hold your horses, a band representative said. That’s not the case at all.

When asked to confirm or deny the rumors of a breakup, the band’s rep said:

denied, Despite rumours to the contrary, Gorillaz are alive and well and misbehaving in London W10

Further confirmation comes from Jamie Hewlett’s son Denholm, who posted the following on Gorillaz-Unofficial:

Hey everyonee, listen, i just spoke to my dad and told him about this, and he said its rubbish, they have kinda fallen out, just not about the reasons stated above in the article, they’re just taking time apart from each other to work on other projects :) gorillaz are not gunna split up, its fine :) ignore this tabloid x
