Published Dec 17, 2009When Noel Gallagher left Oasis earlier this year, Liam and the gang announced plans to continue making music in a new band. He was tempted to keep the name Oasis, but now he's gone one step further by giving it the sure-to-be controversial name Oasis 2.0.
Speaking with News of the World [via Consequence of Sound], Liam said that Oasis 2.0 (which is only a working title at this point) are pretty much the exact same band. "It ain't a new direction," he said. We're not making reggae music or rap music. It might have a bit more energy and be fresher. It's not going to be that different."
Not only are they the same band, but they're aiming to have their album finished and released before Noel can blink an eye. "I'd like to have a record out by July next year," Liam said. "We've already done about three songs and they're sounding fucking amazing."
According to a report from the Daily Star [via Digital Spy], the new album might come bundled with a documentary. One of Liam's friends allegedly spoke to the tabloid, saying, "Liam is fed up with people thinking Noel was the brains behind the group. By filming studio sessions, fans can see how hard he works, and how involved he is in the creative process. Liam takes his job very seriously and isn't afraid at letting the cameras poke their lenses in to prove it."
