Manchester icons Liam Gallagher and John Squire caused a wave of anticipation with the release of their debut collaboration track “Just Another Rainbow”. That was just the start…

Now Liam Gallagher and John Squire announce much more from their collaboration. Their self-titled debut album will be released on March 1st releasing the news alongside their second single, “Mars To Liverpool”. The pair also announce details of their first UK tour together, as well as select shows in Ireland, France, Germany, Italy and the USA.

Liam says:

“I can’t wait for people to hear the album. I think the people that are into the Stone Roses and Oasis and that kinda thing, I think they’ll fucking love it. It’s spiritual, it’s crucial. LG x”

John adds:

“It was really inspiring to have those Knebworth gigs fresh in my mind as I started writing. Then it was a case of trying to steer it away from all being too rocky, and trying to mix up the sentiments as well. I like the way that in some parts, it’s quite melancholic and it can make you well up, but there are other parts that are kind of irreverent, rude or crude. There’s a little bit of everything in there, I think it’s a really good mix. I had a hunch that we’d sound good together, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be such a good fit.”

Following the release of the album in March, Liam and John head out on a UK tour with a band completed by Barrie Cadogan (Little Barrie, Paul Weller) on bass and Joey Waronker on drums. Jake Bugg will appear as special guest on all shows except Brooklyn.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
