Though nearly seven years have passed since brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher last performed together under the iconic Oasis moniker, and a reunion seems unlikely anytime soon, the defunct band will nevertheless be top of mind later this year.
This October, the same production team that orchestrated the Academy Award-winning 2015 Amy Winehouse documentary Amy will release their follow-up film Supersonic, which examines Oasis’ mid-90s ascendance and domination. The Gallaghers’ unrelenting antagonism toward one another has always been and continues to be an entertaining spectacle to behold, not to mention that their music is consistently top-notch, so Supersonic should prove must-watch material to say the least.
In the meantime, as we anxiously await the film and enjoy Liam’s latest low-brow jabs aimed at his older brother, the band’s record label Big Brother Recordings is prepping four new 180-gram vinyl reissues that hit stores this summer. The group’s fourth studio album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) and follow-up effort Heathen Chemistry (2002) land July 1st. Six weeks later on August 12th, the 1998 B-sides compilation The Masterplan and 2005’s Don’t Believe the Truth arrive in stores. The re-releases follow the 2014 reissues of Oasis’ 1994 debut Definitely Maybe and 1995 sophomore album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, both rightfully considered masterpieces.
