So, the rumors were true: Oasis is set to release its first album without Noel Gallagher. The band is currently working without a name, but Liam Gallagher told Virgin Radio Italy that he would "like to have a record out by July next year. We've already done about three songs and they're fucking sounding amazing." While he has yet to confirm that the band will continue to use the Oasis moniker, Liam emphasized that Noel's departure had done little to change the group's sound: "It ain't a new direction. 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." Check out the full interview after the jump.
