Reunion or reissue? Fans are getting excited by the new Oasis teaser

Oasis have shared a mysterious new teaser video online, sparking excitement and speculation among fans.

A brief, vintage-looking clip was posted on the Britpop band’s official social media channels yesterday (May 20) without a caption or any further information.

Some followers have suggested that the aerial footage shows the picturesque setting of Sawmills Studio in Cornwall – where Oasis recorded sessions for their seminal debut album, 1994’s "Definitely Maybe".

This has led some fans to believe that the teaser could be signalling an upcoming reissue to mark the record’s 30th anniversary. Last year, Noel Gallagher confirmed that a new edition of the LP would be arriving in 2024 to mark the milestone.

His estranged brother and former bandmate Liam, meanwhile, is due to embark on a special ‘Definitely Maybe’ UK and Ireland tour next month. He’ll also play the album in full when he headlines Reading & Leeds in August.

In the comments section of the new teaser, one fan wrote: “That’s the place where it all started.” Another said: “It’s where they recorded ‘Definitely Maybe’, it will be something to do with the 30th anniversary.”

A third user added: “It’s Sawmills Studio where most of the album was recorded…”

Other fans, however, are holding out hope for news on an Oasis reunion – which the Gallaghers have spoken about extensively in recent years.

“Please tell me it’s happening,” wrote one person, with another saying: “Surely it’s not happening.” Someone else commented: “This is as cryptic as the Gallagher relationship.” A fan said: “Come on, don’t play with my feelings.”

Sharing a similar sentiment, another user posted: “Don’t do that. Don’t give me hope.” Elsewhere in the comments, someone asked “WHAT IS THIS????” while a second person wrote: “Please be happening.”

The clip has blown up on X/Twitter too. Many followers on the platform have noted that the location in question is that of Sawmills Studio – although some remain optimistic regarding a comeback.

Last month saw Liam Gallagher respond to Andy Bell’s recent comments about a potential Oasis reunion. Bell, who played bass for the band between 1999 and 2009, said Oasis would “probably” get back together at some point in the future.

Liam then said that Bell “should really not be getting people’s hopes up”, adding: “It’s not big and it’s not clever.” He also replied to a fan who argued that the Ride musician was “just saying what you’ve said a million times already” – referring to Liam’s many past comments about Oasis’ future.

The singer replied: “I’ve never mentioned [an] Oasis reunion it’s over we must all really move [on] for our own mental health.”

Re-posting Liam’s message, Bell said: “Apologies! Didn’t mean to get anyone’s hopes up, nothing to see here! X.”

Last October, Liam claimed that Noel had been asked to participate in his "Definitely Maybe" UK and Ireland tour, but he “refused”. He previously teased that he’d be playing some “naughty” B-sides at the shows, and ruled out airing any of his solo material.

Speaking to NME in 2020, Liam said an Oasis reunion was “gonna happen very f**king soon”, with Noel revealing in early 2023 that he would “never say never” to the idea. LG subsequently argued that his older brother had “done a lot of damage to Oasis as a brand”.

Noel then discussed the possibility of an Oasis comeback during an interview with NME last summer. He said he would “inevitably” be approached about a tour, but added: “There’s never really been a serious offer about ‘The Big O’ getting back together, but there you go.”

In October, the High Flying Birds frontman accused Liam of trying to “rewrite history” regarding Oasis’ “dreadful” final year together ahead of their break-up in 2009. “The last tour was not happy,” he explained.

Former Oasis guitarist Bonehead has said that he would like a reunion to go ahead because of what it would mean to the “younger fans” of the band.

More recently, Noel revealed that he would be “bang up” for an Oasis hologram show after watching ABBA‘s ‘Voyage’ concert.

During an interview with NME in April, Liam said an Oasis return was “not happening” around the "Definitely Maybe" anniversary. He was asked if fans could expect a reunion to celebrate the two-decade milestone of "(What’s The Story) Morning Glory" in 2025.

“I don’t know – I don’t think that’s happening either,” he responded. ‘It’s not happening at this moment in time.”

Last month, Oasis shared an early live recording of "Supersonic" to mark the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut single.
