El Manana was the last single to be released from the band’s second album Demon Days, and appeared to show a harrowing attack on Noodle and her potential demise as the floating island is gunned from the sky by sinister helicopters. A few weeks prior to the release a series of events had been taking place on the band’s website, Kong Studios, and the fans were already in an uproar of speculation – Noodle had packed up her belongings, her room was empty and cracks were starting to show – was she leaving the band?
