While Paramore are losing band members, Gorillaz are gaining them. The hip-pop-electronic-funk outfit, who recently released their iPad album The Fall for free online, have a brand spankin’ new character, thanks to a fan’s imagination. The group held a contest to come up with the design of their new character, the Evangelist. And the design was revealed today, just in time for the band to go on hiatus! Jump below and get a bigger look at Gorillaz’ newest creature.

Gorillaz.com member jirouta submitted the winning design, which was then re-drawn by Gorillaz artist Jamie Hewlett into the above figure.

Veiny, moist, and wearing tighty-whities. Strange one, this is. We would expect nothing less.
