The meteoric rise and epic disintegration of the British band Oasis will be explored in the new documentary Supersonic, out Oct. 2.
Directed by Matt Whitecross, the film examines the history of brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, who went from “being a new signing” to “rock’s true giants” in just three short years.
Executive produced by Academy Award winner Asif Kapadia — the mastermind behind the Amy Winehouse documentary Amy — the film follows the band from their signing at Creation Records through their rise and implosion in the tabloids. “Oasis was like a Ferrari,” Liam explains. “Great to look at. Great to drive. And it’ll f—ing spin out of control every now and again.”
Whitecross recently gave hope to fans at a press conference promoting the film, saying he believes the brothers will reunite at the fall premiere. “Neither of them have discounted the idea of getting back together,” Whitecross said. “It will happen, I’m sure. The idea of never seeing them again for me is impossible.”
According to Whitecross, Chris Martin from Coldplay is attempting to get the group back together. “Noel said everyone is always coming up to them giving them advice about how they are going to mend this relationship,” he told NME.”He’s friends with Chris Martin and he said Chris should quit the music business and become a therapist because every week he goes ‘Look, this is how you are going to patch up the band.'”
The film will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on Oct. 31.
In other Oasis news, the Be Here Now: Chasing the Sun Super Deluxe Set is due out Oct. 7.
