Oasis returning under new name & without Noel Gallagher


Remember back in August when Noel Gallagher shocked no one by finally quitting Oasis? Noel and his brother Liam — notorious for bickering and airing their grievances with each other in the media — fronted a band known as much for its music as for its feuding. A pre-show argument over a guitar was the straw that finally broke Oasis' back.

Not one to stay out of the news for long, Liam announced on an Italian radio show last week that he is still working with all of Oasis' members, excluding Noel, and the band will soon be back performing live under a new name.

Rolling Stone reported that Gem Archer (guitar), Andy Bell (bass) and Chris Sharrock (drums) have been working on new music with Liam and are planning to go on tour in the near future. And, according to L. Gallagher, even though this new band is essentially Oasis under a different name, the sound will be different. Chances are the band dynamic will be a bit different this time around too.

As for Noel, he is working on a solo career and, as he has told several media outlets, very happy to be done with Liam and Oasis.
