Religious influence revealed in exclusive video interview

Oasis leader Noel Gallagher has spoken to NME.COM about the “religious theme” that crops up on the band’s forthcoming new album ‘Dig Out Your Soul’.

Speaking in an exclusive video interview, the guitarist revealed that a number of the songs on the album have been influenced by The Bible and “religious Armageddon”.

“I was listening back to the mixes in America and I was thinking ‘everything mentioned is the light’,” he explained. “I was like to Gem [Archer, Oasis guitarist], ‘there’s a bit of a religious theme going on here, definitely Biblical’. The guy doing the [album] cover was like ‘it’s religious Armageddon’, and I was like ‘wow, fucking hell’.”

The video chat also sees bassist Andy Bell discuss ‘The Nature Of Reality’, the track he penned on the album.

‘Dig Out Your Soul’ is set to be released on October 6, preceded by the first single to be taken from the album, ‘The Shock Of The Lightning’, on September 29.
