Murder Of The Universe
"a batshit, brilliant new album" New York Observer

June 23, 2017 (Burbank, CA.) - After the sensational reaction to his debut solo track "Wall of Glass'" and the fanatical scenes that accompanied his first solo shows in Ireland and the U.K.,Liam Gallagher has announced his eagerly anticipated debut solo album As You Were.  Set for an October 6 release date via Warner Bros./Parlophone Records, fans can pre-order the album today and receive and instant download of "Wall of Glass" followed by "China Town" on June 30.

Gallagher has also confirmed his first ever North American tour as a solo artist. Fans can pre-order tickets beginning today at 12:00 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT. Local market tickets pre-sales begin June 27. All pre-sales will end June 28 at 10:00 p.m. local time. General ticket on-sales begin June 29, at 10:00 a.m. local time.  Ticket bundles packages will also be available.

Liam Gallagher North American tour dates: 
Nov 13             San Francisco, CA        Warfield
Nov 18             Denver, CO                  Gothic
Nov 20             Minneapolis, MN           First Avenue

Joining Liam Gallagher on the road will be Jay Mehler on guitars, Mike Moore on guitars, Christian Madden on keyboards, Drew McConnell on bass, and Dan McDougall on drums. 
As expected, excitement for new music from Gallagher has been embraced by fans and critics from the onset:
"Everything you'd want from a solo Liam Gallagher: big tunes, great singing, plenty of attitude." - Q Magazine (U.K.)
"Gallagher snarls over raucous power chords, pounding drums and wailing harmonica. 'Wall Of Glass' pairs a vintage Oasis attack with modern production sheen." - Rolling Stone
"Arguably the greatest frontman of his generation." - NME
"A swaggering solo single with wailing harmonica, angelic vocals and propulsive guitars." -Entertainment Weekly

"'Wall of Glass' is stadium-scaled rock, packed full of distorted riffs. A return to form." - Spin
As You Were was recorded in two locations. Greg Kurstin performed all of the instruments on the four songs that he produced ("Wall Of Glass," "Paper Crown," "Come Back To Me" and the psychedelic whoosh of "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way"), while Dan Grech-Marguerat produced the remainder of the album at Snap! Studios in London.
The result is exactly what you would have hoped a Liam Gallagher solo album would sound like: the passion for the classic 60s/70s influence that he's always had has been updated for the here and now.
"I didn't want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey," says Gallagher."It's the Lennon 'Cold Turkey' vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now."
