Lead guitarist Jeff Wootton for live Gorillaz performances and Jamie Reynolds of the formerly active London-based Klaxons have joined forces to create a six-person supergroup called YOTA: Youth of the Apocalypse.
The multi-genre group’s first single “Drop the Bomb” features legendary MC MF Doom hot off his collaborative album Czarface Meets Metal Face! alongside Czarface. In a recent interview, Wootton spoke about how the rapper came into the fold for the single, stating:
“Madvillainy is a killa record. I worked with him before with Damon Albarn and we kept in touch. He liked what Jamie and me were doing, and so when we wrote this track and it had a David Axelrod kind of feel I could just hear MF Doom all over it!”
