Liam Gallagher is currently gearing up to release his second full-length record, Why Me? Why Not, later this month. To coincide with the release of the record, the Britpop icon will also unleash a documentary, As It Was.
As It Was is set to explore the tumultuous career trajectory of the younger Gallagher brother. It will specifically explore the period after Oasis’ abrupt split in 2009. A description for the film reveals that the documentary is set to unearth “the honest and emotional story of how one of rock music’s most electrifying frontmen fell from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years as part of the band Oasis into a musical wilderness of ostracism, booze, and bitter legal battles.”
Fans finally have their first glimpse of the film with a brand new trailer, which you can check out below.
“It was pretty vicious and pretty nasty,” Gallagher says of his tiff with Noel in the trailer. “The geezer split me band up,” he adds. “No wonder we hate each other.”

In related news, Noel Gallagher recently revealed that he believes a musical about the genesis of Oasis is “inevitable.” In an interview with The Sun, he revealed that he is in talks with an “English guy who works on Broadway who knows about these things”.
“And he was like saying, ‘Your journey from rags to riches’. ‘And I was like, “Do you have to make it so Dickensian? I never wore any rags”. People do love that shit, I know. It’s inevitable it will happen one day. I will go and see it once.”
Liam Gallagher will be heading down under in December for a slew of Aussie headline shows. Check out the tour dates and ticket information below.
As It Was will arrive in cinemas on September 13th.
