Liam Gallagher talks about new material

Liam Gallagher has revealed that Oasis could be set to release new material in the summer.

The split in Oasis has been one of the year's most disappointing news stories. The Manchester giants released their latest album 'Dig Out Your Soul' last year scoring hits around the world - notably in the United States.

Touring extensively the group had just completed their biggest UK tour for a decade. Oasis have always thrived on internal friction, but it seems that this dynamic has finally torn them apart with Noel Gallagher exiting the band.

Currently working on solo material, Noel Gallagher's former band mates are set to carry on without the songwriter. In a new interview brother Liam Gallagher has revealed that the remaining group plan to release material in the summer.

"I'd like to have a record out by July next year" Liam told The News Of The World. "We've already done about three songs and they're fucking sounding amazing."

The singer went on to claim that the new band are currently working under the name 'Oasis 2.0'. Much speculation has existed among fans as to the name Liam Gallagher would choose, with most of the group having served time in the Manchester giants.

New sessions contain appearances from Andy Bell and Gem Archer, with Liam Gallagher promising that 'Oasis 2.0' wouldn't be re-inventing the wheel.

"It ain't a new direction." he explained. "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."

Noel Gallagher has yet to comment on the project.
