Back in November, Gorillaz announced that they were after a new member, a new Cartoon member to be precise. They decided to hold an online contest to get fans to help create their newest member who they say is called the Evangelist.
Over on their official website, we were given a snippet of info regarding the character:
"'The Evangelist' is the opposite of 'The Boogieman'; the light to his awful shade. 'The Boogieman' has appeared in several images from the Gorillaz world, and now featured in several videos... 'The Evangelist' is a similar entity, but the flip-side of 'The Boogieman'. He/she may even be revealed as 'The Boogieman's' avenger. His/her outer appearance is yet to be defined. Many rumours fly around of his/her description."
A winner of the competition has been announced and after being re-drawn by Jamie Hewlett, Gorrilaz.com member jirouta's character is a fully fledged member of the band! You can from the creepy image above the Evangelist via Pitchfork.
